Typhoon Lagoon in June

Florida Guide > Water Parks

This was the first time we had visited our villa in the month of June and although it was wonderful to see so much blossom on the trees and flowers on the plants it was hot and beginning to get humid as the summer advanced.

We had only been at the villa for a couple of days when we decided we needed to visit a Water Park and spend a morning there to cool down. As we planned to do some shopping in Downtown Disney afterwards we thought we would to go to Typhoon Lagoon which is directly opposite.

When we go to a Water Park we try to get there on or before opening time as in the hotter months they get very busy and if you do not arrive early it can be difficult to get sunbeds. Car parking spaces too can also be difficult because as parking free at most of the Water Parks. Some people park at the water parks and then avail themselves of the Disney Transportation network to go to the parks. Quite savvy if you want to avoid the main parks' parking fees but it does inevitably take time to get to the parks.
We tend to buy our tickets before we go to avoid the queues; they now have separate turnstiles for paper tickets and the newer plastic ones.

When you enter the Typhoon Lagoon as well as a Park Map you will see lots of signposts so it is easy to find your way around.

Our girls always spend quite a time in the Wave Pool so we always try to get sunbeds near there. In the early hours there are usually plenty around as well as lots of low chairs that are great to sit in to sunbathe while you dip your feet in the cold water.

High above the wave pool is a ship that has been wrecked and periodically you will hear a gun go off that denotes the waves are about to start, the girls literally spend hours here only interrupting their visit with a short escapade to the various water rides whilst Grandad gets himself a tube and floats around the lazy river.

On our visit in June we saw lots of signs around the Park advertising the Teen Beach Movie Show and we discovered after settling on our sunbeds that this was to take place beside us. There was a stage already set up and soon a huge beach ball arrived to be sited at the side of the stage.

A blackboard soon arrived displaying the times of the parties and as the music started children appeared from everywhere, they were not really teens but they had come to have fun. The games started with musical statues followed by a hula hoop competition you would be amazed how good some 5 year olds are with the hoops and also some Mothers joined in as well! There were quite a few prizes given out. The best competition was the limbo dancing under a body board with girls and boys competing against each other.

If you are in Orlando in June Typhoon Lagoon is well worth a visit.

Please do make sure though that you have plenty of sunscreen with you to reapply when necessary and a T shirt to put on if it gets too hot. When you have the cooling water all around you need to be very careful not to get sunburned.
