Typhoon Lagoon reopening
Posted: Monday January 3, 2022 7:54am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park at Walt Disney World has reopened to guests after an almost two year closure due to the COVID pandemic.

Cast Members welcomed back guests to the park on a day with perfect water park temperatures in the mid 80's.

Both of Walt Disney World's water parks closed along with the rest of Walt Disney World in March 2020 due to COVID-19 and have remained closed despite the main four theme parks reopening. Blizzard Beach initially reopened on March 7 2021.

With the opening of Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach has now closed for its annual refurbishment. Both water parks are expected to be operational for the summer season.

haha yes, that is what the official Disney site is currently saying - obviously wrong.

True. But IDU why they couldn't atleast run buses from the DS resorts? They ran direct buses to BB from CSR and the All Star resorts. Seems like a easy transition to do the same for SSR, OKW, and Port Orleans.

At least the buses don't have to go to 2 stations like they use to during the DTD era and was simplified with the Springs station..

I don’t ever take the bus to a water park. Once I had to wait 2 hours for a bus back from TL. Never doing that again.

As well as a buss driver shortage...

Ummmm, I don’t think anyone got banned. Just some deleted posts. I get the annoyance of the bus situation but there are showers and changing facilities at the water parks.

They had to scramble and go with Blizzard Beach with weeks left to go because they accidentally damaged Mount Mayday during refurbishments (broken pipe led to terrain collapse). It was a big deal. The sliding dates since October have been due to additional work that has been needed as they worked to get everything back up and running at TL. The park wasn't designed to be shut down that long and problems arose with the wave pool. I'm not sure which insider was here listing the dates, but it sounds like the insider was correctly following Disney's internal projections... they just had to move as more issues arose.

If the bus situation is anything like my recent experiences…I can’t even imagine the frustration when you’re sitting there with a bunch of wet, water logged kids who just want to get back to the room and change but have to navigate multille bus exchanges and seeing countless “Filling Up My Pixie Dust” empty buses drive by without stopping
