RUMOR: Typhoon Lagoon Preparing for Fall 2021 Reopening at Walt Disney World

Well, it might finally be happening. According to sources, Typhoon Lagoon is in the final stages of preparations for a fall reopening at Walt Disney World. Here’s what we know.

Typhoon Lagoon was closed along with the rest of Walt Disney World back in March 2020 as part of precautions surrounding COVID-19. When the theme parks reopened, both of Walt Disney World’s water parks remained closed for the remainder of 2020. Blizzard Beach was the first (and so far only) water park to reopen on March 7, 2021, but Disney remained silent on the status of Typhoon Lagoon. Disney even removed Typhoon Lagoon from much of its marketing material as fans feared for the future of the water park.

During the ongoing closure of Typhoon Lagoon, an extensive maintenance project took place at not only the wave pool but also in a backstage area behind the park where a partial hillside collapse took place.

Now, sources have indicated that the pools are being refilled, and the shops and restaurants prepared as Cast Members begin to be called back to Typhoon Lagoon! As of publish time, Disney has not made any announcements about the status or return of Typhoon Lagoon, but we expect to hear more in the coming weeks.

As with any rumor, you should treat any and all information in this post as unofficial unless and until Disney confirmed it.
