Disney's new family raft ride at Typhoon Lagoon now has a name - Miss Fortune Falls.

Opening in Spring 2017, the family raft ride will become the longest attraction at any Disney water park, clocking in at 2 minutes ride time.

Miss Fortune Falls brings to life the story of fictitious Captain Mary Oceaneer, a treasure-hunting heroine who got stranded at Typhoon Lagoon years ago by a rogue storm.

Once aboard their treasure rafts awaiting them at the ride’s entry point, Guests will embark on a journey through Captain Oceaneer’s past before plunging into a white-water adventure where Guests can see unique artifacts that Captain Mary Oceaneer collected on her many treasure hunts around the world.

The new ride is being built on unused land near to Crush 'n' Gusher. Read more about the plans.

steve i know it has been mentioned in other threads somewhat but do they plan to fix what ever issues keep plaguing blizzard beachs summit plummet?

Anyone ever have luck with disney when they move up refurb schedules? We wouldn't have purchased water park as part of our ticket. We booked a while ago but just found out BB is closed now, we just arrived.

Just don't forget that one of the reasons the new Miss Fortune Falls raft ride is long is becuase you climb the lift hill while sat in the rafts, similar to Kali rapids. Whereas on the raft ride at Blizzard Beach you board at the top of the slide. Total downhill time will proably be similar to Blizzard Beach I guess.

Sounds great. Love the play on words, love the name, love that it is loooooong! Should be a blast and a welcome addition to my favorite Disney Park of them all!

Nah. They'll just shut the place down and put up a fence with rocks around it.

I would expect so, barring any kind of technical problem delaying open.

So i'm going to assume that Miss Fortune Falls will open on March 12? I can't imagine it won't open up with the park.

Guardians of the Galaxy overlay anybody?

That's a great name... until someone drowns. - and I don't mean that as they shouldn't name it that. I really like the name. I mean that as our hyper-sensitive public/execs will change the name the first time someone drowns or is seriously injured there.

Interested in seeing the new raft ride at TL

Thanks Steve. Of course it is all subject to change, as I/we learned this past year. A week before opening TL extends its refurb by 2 weeks (majorly bumming us out!) then is forced to open anyways as BB is unexpectedly closed down (a terrific surprise!).
