The Typhoon Lagoon waterpark will remain closed for the next few days and is expected to re-open next Monday the 31st. After being closed for over a year the park re-opened on January 2nd, but has since been the victim of several shutdowns as multiple cold fronts have affected the temperature of the water.
Typhoon Lagoon has been open for almost a month and about 1/4th of that time has been spent closed. Florida has been seeing a rather unusual pattern of cold weather. It is said that parts of Florida will be seeing some of the coldest weather in nearly a decade. Orlando is expected to see 38 degree weather on Saturday and 30 degree weather on Sunday. Some temperatures in northern Florida are expected to get down to 23 degrees.
Not only has Typhoon Lagoon been closed multiple times, but also Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Universal Studio’s Volcano Bay have also experiences multiple closures. Despite the colder weather neither Disney or Universal have stated that either of the aforementioned water parks will be closed. Perhaps they will announce it later, which may be for the best. Nobody wants to go on vacation and experience hypothermia while swimming with their family.
Multiple other smaller water parks have been closing due to the colder weather as well. It is currently unknown if Disney or Universal will be closing any of their water related attractions. Magic Kingdom has Splash Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean, Animal Kingdom has Kali River Rapids, and Universal’s Islands of Adventure has Disney Do-Right’s Ripsaw Falls and Jurassic Park River Adventure. Guests are known to get wet on these rides, so with the low temperatures and Floridian winds guests may want to bring and extra set of clothes and some hoodies and sweat pants to change into after they dry.
