Disney's Typhoon Lagoon has Reopened, but there's more to the story
The surf’s up once again at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, but that's only part of the story. The tropical-island-inspired water park reopened to guests on January 2, 2022. Unfortunately, Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park closed to guests (temporarily at least) on New Year's Day (January 1, 2022). Disney giveth and Disney taketh away.
There's always a lot to do at Typhoon Lagoon, but with the Walt Disney World 50th anniversary underway, there are a few more things you should know.

You Can Create Your Own Custom Dole Whip

You can even mix and match some favorite DOLE Whip flavors including mango, pineapple, lime and raspberry to build your own custom Disney Dole Whip. Adult Guests can choose to electrify their Dole Whips by adding tequila, coconut rum or dark rum. Plus, the new Moana-inspired Dole Whip cones are also available as an option.
