Disney World to reopen Typhoon Lagoon Water Park on Jan. 2

Typhoon Lagoon will reopen on January 2, 2022. According to a news release from Disney, the park will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and Typhoon Lagoon will be included in these celebrations.

The water park closed in March 2020, along with the rest of Disney World due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, Disney has reopened the other theme parks at the resort, including Blizzard Beach Water Park.

Typhoon Lagoon, however, remained closed throughout this entire period.

Blizzard Beach will be temporarily closing in the beginning of January to undergo its annual refurbishment. Since Florida’s winters are typically warmer than the rest of the US, however, Disney says that it’s still a good season for guests to visit a water park.

From Jan. 21 through Feb. 13 of next year, guests will be able to participate in the Lunar New Year celebration. Starting on March 4, Disneyland will host the Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival, which will run through April 26.

The water park originally closed along with the rest of Disney World, including Cinderella’s Castle, in March 2020 because of coronavirus concerns.

The Food and Wine Festival will allow guests to sample a variety of food options from a dozen festival marketplaces. Culinary demonstrations with celebrity and local chefs will also be held, along with wine tasting seminars.
