Typhoon Lagoon water park
According to "Disney legend," a typhoon wreaked havoc on a once tropical paradise, leaving behind a stranded ship impaled atop a mountain and forever changing the landscape to create amusing new configurations. That pristine paradise is now a water park, home to a surf pool, water slides, a lazy river, and more.
Blizzard Beach water park
"Disney legend" maintains that a freak snowstorm created Florida's first ski resort. After much of the snow dissipated, the resort was soon reborn as a water park, complete with a ski lift, slopes, water slides, and more. Frozen fun awaits you!
