Typhoon Lagoon closed today due to unplanned maintenance

Jun 08, 2017 in "Typhoon Lagoon"

Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park is closed today, June 8 2017, due to unplanned maintenance work.

As of now, the water park is expected to reopen on Friday June 9.

Although the park had its normal annual refurbishment over the winter, it unusually closed for a brief two day refurbishment in May. Disney has not released any details about specific problems, but it would appear to be something impacting the majority of operations at the park to result in a closure.

Blizzard Beach is operating as normal.

An indoor waterpark adventure in Disney Springs...let the kiddies swim while the adulties go shopping.

Cheap so called 'repairs' usually cause more damage than the initial issue.

There is plenty of land for a new waterpark if they wanted it

Indeed. I was recently informed that the mountain is decaying at a rapid rate and it may fall in he near future if they don't reinforce it. But an entirely new waterpark is much needed. One that will hold THOUSANDS of guests without feeling crowded. But where? I dunno, maybe take out one of the many golf courses at WDW?

I would love to see a TL 2.0. Take the same concept, but with 21st century technology. It would be a rough two years or so with just BB open though, unless they were to build a third water park. BB has its share of issues too, it'll be interesting to see what they do in the end. Really, both of them need a lot of work and I've let them know it on multiple occasions, haha. I'm still upset about Runoff Rapids.

Or an entirely original concept that doesn't tie in to any Disney movie. But that would require years of R&D (eh hem, Pandora).

FYI, sometimes when it's lightning indoor water parks close and swimming pools close too. Even with a multi million dollar retractable roof it would still have to close sometimes

Or they could make it Ariel and Nemo's Adventureland WaterPark. That way it would appeal to all.

Except that it would pretty much appeal to mostly Princess lovers.

Anyone else see these "sudden maintenance issues" as a sign of TLs time coming to an end? Seems more and more that the more they fix the park the more it breaks.

I could so see an indoor Disney water park, and they would call it Under The Sea with everything Little Mermaid themed. The slides and tubes would be clear and some would go under water.

That's the question. It was BB in previous years and now TL. It seems to show how the water parks are aging and that maintenance is not getting done during the winter closures. It is a shame for those who plan a water park day when they don't have dining reservations or plan to use a day on their tickets. Things happen, like weather, but these types of closures are frustrating. Hopefully it gets fixed right this time. ETA: Runoff Rapids at BB continues to sit closed with no explanation or visible work last I heard. We're changing our plans in August as those are three slides my kids would definitely go on, and I used to work there and really want to my kid to experience the park. It's just a shame they're not maintaining them like they once did.
