Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park Reviews
Superb day with excellent facilities
Trusted Customer reviewed Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park 22 Sep, 2023
Lazy River - a must Do. What I don't like are the short opening hours especially the closing time 5 P.M. is much too early. Sunset would be the right time to close.
