Splash Splash!!!

A Typhoon wrecked havoc upon a tropical paradise and out of the wreck, Typhoon Lagoon was born!!! Typhoon Lagoon has the world’s largest outdoor wave pool.  Steve LOVES it. I am partial to the lazy river!! I can float in it for hours. Typhoon Lagoon also has a shark reef that you can snorkel through. The fish are so beautiful and its a perfect way to cool off on a hot day., as the salt water is cooler. Typhoon Lagoon also has a water coaster, Crush’n’Gusher. Crush’n’Gusher is awesome and a ride that everybody should visit at least once.

A freak snowstorm caused the formation of Blizzard Beach and the theming is one of the best you’ll see anywhere. A ski resort was belt but soon the snow started to melt. This park has so many water slides that it is impossible to count and the leading Slide is Summit Plummet. Summit Plummet is the flagship attraction at 120 feet (36.6 m) tall, and speeds 60 miles per hour (97 km/h). It’s the second tallest and fastest free fall slide in the world.

There is a third “Water Park” that should definitely be mentioned. Stormalong Bay is the Yacht and Beach Club pool. To call it a pool is doing in an injustice. It resembles a beach-side water park with its sand-bottom pools, a circular lazy river, waterfall, and the “Shipwreck”, a large replica of a ship wreck with one of the highest resort water slides at Walt Disney World.











The last water park is unfortunately no longer around. River Country should definitely have an honorable mention because it was an amazing part of Walt Disney World History. River Country was described as an old fashioned sinking hole and was the first water park in Walt Disney World. Located by the Fort Wilderness Cabins and Campgrounds, it was also convenient to get to from Magic kingdom and the now defunct Discovery Island.  For safety reasons, it closed in 2001 and is missed by Disney fans everywhere!
