Disney Water Parks Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach

Typhoon Lagoon

If you need to take some time to cool down from the hot Florida sun, Disney makes that place too!   Typhoon Lagoon is one of the most visited water parks in the world.  Typhoon Lagoon opened in 1989 and houses the world's largest outdoor wave pool.  The theme of the park is a "Disney legend" of a typhoon that wreaked havoc upon a pristine tropical paradise. Ships, fishing gear and surfboards are all thrown about haphazardly where the storm left them.  The centerpiece of the park is "Miss Tilly," a shrimp boat impaled upon a mountain named "Mount Mayday" that erupts a 50-foot (15 m) geyser of water each half hour, appropriate before the bells of the watch sound on Miss Tilly.

Blizzard Beach Logo

So, what does Disney do when they have essentially the most visited water park?   Well, they build a second one, Blizzard Beach, which is now the second most visited around the world.  The park, which opened in 1995, has a theme of a freak snowstorm coming to the region, bringing the construction of Florida's first "ski resort".  Naturally, the snow didn't last, leaving behind a collection of waterlogged but snow-less ski jumps and chair lifts.  Disney legend says, after an alligator was seen sliding down a flume and splashing into a pool of water, screaming "Yahoo!", the "ski resort" was reborn as a water park, with the alligator (named "Ice Gator") as mascot.


Walt Disney World Golf

Disney GolfWalt Disney World Resort has four 18 hole golf courses.  Their names are the Palm, the Magnolia, Lake Buena Vista and Osprey Ridge.  Each golf course ranks from 4 stars to 4 1/2 stars.  There is also a nine-hole walking course called Oak Trail.  This course is designed for younger generation.
