Miss Adventure Falls coming to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon

In August 2016 Disney Parks revealed that they would be building a new Family Raft water adventure at their Typhoon Lagoon water park.  It was set to be called “Miss Fortune Falls.”   Disney World has changed the name slightly to “Miss Adventure Falls,” revealed some artwork and given us an opening time frame!

10 Best Disney World Water Park Rides

The weather is heating up as we turn toward the “dog days” of summer and we’re all looking for a great way to cool down.  Perhaps you’ve planning to spend all your time in the four main theme parks of Walt Disney World.  You should consider taking a mid-day break or two at Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon and be sure to take in my 10 Best Disney World Water Park Rides.

10. Cross Country Creek – Blizzard Beach

Cross Country Creek at Disney's Blizzard Beach Water ParkI LOVE lazy rivers, especially ones with great theming.  I enjoy just floating along placidly, talking with my family, laughing and seeing who can get the others wet in the various spray areas.  Cross Country Creek beats out Castaway Creek at Typhoon Lagoon only because it douses you with repeatedly with very cold water that is sure to bring out some great laughs among your family members as the others make those great silly faces.  Castaway Creek is great in its own right because it offers beautiful tropical theming.

There is no minimum height limit.

Teen Beach 2 Beach Party coming to Typhoon Lagoon this summer

From May 22 through July 5, 2015 guests can join in the “Teen Beach 2:” Beach Party at various times throughout day. The fun includes “bikers” and “surfers” who dance and play beach-themed games with guests as a DJ spins remixes of retro tunes. Taking over part of Typhoon Lagoon’s main beach area, guests can participate in relays on the sand, hula hoop spinning, water balloon and beach ball tossing, and the grooviest dance moves this side of Mt. Mayday.

Premiering this summer on Disney Channel, “Teen Beach 2″ is set months after surfer sweethearts Mack and Brady return from a summer adventure that transported them into Brady’s favorite 1960s beach party movie, “Wet Side Story,” only to receive a surprise real-world visit from Lela, Tanner, Butchy and their other newfound surfer and biker buddies.

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is the perfect place to find cool thrills on attractions like “Crush ‘n’ Gusher” and “Humunga Kowabunga,” or you can just “hang 10” in North America’s largest wave pool or the lazy river. With Summer 2015 being the Coolest Summer Ever at Walt Disney World Resort, there’s never been a better time to check out all the water-soaked action at Typhoon Lagoon, including the “Teen Beach 2:” Beach Party.

Meeting characters at Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon

I set out to Locate Goofy at Blizzard Beach along with Lilo and Stitch at Typhoon Lagoon. I was told 6 different locations for Goofy by 6 different cast members and one said, “He just wanders all over the park.” I finally found his location. It is on the left as you enter the water park just before the Beach Haus souvenirs.  Last year, he was meeting along a path near the lazy river, but this year he is meeting in this location throughout the day.  I have his schedule below.
