Today, we hit Disney's other water park, "Typhoon Lagoon". Unlike Blizzard Beach, this location had plenty of very tropical decor - and had a constant stream of Beach Boys hits on the speakers reminding you of just how relaxed you ought to be - either hitting the 6 foot waves in the wave pool (only body-surfing, they weren't doing the surfboard thing today) - or riding one of the multiple intertube rides.
The story goes that this location resulted from a massive typhoon which left the skipper's ship high and dry on top of a mountain. Every hour or so, a blowhorn would sound and water would plummet out of the ship and down the mountain.
This is a picture of this park's lazy river. Don't look for anyone you know - I just snapped it from the bridge randomly.
While body-surfing one of the waves, Mikayla got hit in the mouth and her braces caused her lip to bleed. In order to make her feel better, we got a "bucket" of ice cream. Given that thing fed these three girls and Michele and I - it turned into the cheapest snack we've purchased yet from Disney!
Not a bad shot of Michael - catching some rays!
Our handsome little guy.....
And these two pictures contrast the wave pool - without and then with the six foot waves.
I kind of thought my beach towel summed up the general feelings of the week....... =)
