The layout is so simple that it's hard to get lost. The wave and swimming lagoon is at the center of the park; the waves break on the beaches closest to the entrance and are born in Mt. Mayday at the other end of the park. Castaway Creek encircles the lagoon. Anything requiring a gravitational plunge storm slides, speed slides, and raft trips down rapids starts around the summit of Mt. Mayday. Shark Reef and Ketchakiddie Creek flank the head of the lagoon, to Mt. Mayday's right and left, respectively, as you enter the park.
Ordinary folks, the legend continues, would have been crushed by such devastation. But the resourceful residents of Placid Palms were made of hardier stuff and from the wreckage they created 56 acre Typhoon Lagoon, the self proclaimed "world's ultimate water park."
According to Disney legend, Typhoon Lagoon was created when the quaint, thatched roof, lushly landscaped Placid Palms Resort was struck by a cataclysmic storm. It left a different world in its wake: surfboards sundered trees, once upright palms imitated the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and part of the original lagoon was cut off, trapping thousands of tropical fish and a few sharks. Nothing, however, topped the fate of Miss Tilly, a shrimp boat from "Safen Sound, Florida," which was hurled high in the air and became impaled on Mt. Mayday, a magical volcano that periodically tries to dislodge

Divers favor this cinder block roadside motel close to the manatee population at Kings Bay. Dive boats depart for scuba and snorkeling excursions from the marina. The property is nestled under large oak trees that make the place feel like the Old South. Poolside rooms have good views of the bay and sunsets. The coral reef is artificial, but the 4,000 tropical fish including black and white striped sergeant majors, sargassum trigger fish, yellowtail damselfish, and amiable leopard and bonnet head sharks are quite real. To prevent algae growth, Shark Reef is kept at a brisk 72F, which is about 15 degrees cooler than the rest of Typhoon Lagoon. A sunken tanker divides the reef; its portholes give landlubbers access to the underwater scene and let them go nose to nose with snorkelers. Go first thing in the morning or at the end of the day if you want to linger. During the warmest weather, adults and children ages 5 and over can take a personal supplied air snorkeling lesson at about $20 per half hour. If your kids want to learn how to explore the depths of the ocean Disney style, sign them up at Guest Services when you purchase your tickets.
float in inner tubes along the 2,100 foot Castaway Creek, rubberneck from specially constructed grandstands as human cannonballs are ejected from the storm slides, or merely hunker down in one of the many hammocks or lounge chairs and read a book. A children's area replicates adult rides on a smaller scale. It's Disney's version of a day at the beach complete with friendly Disney lifeguards.
There are plenty of lounge chairs and a number of hammocks but definitely not enough beach umbrellas. If you crave shade, commandeer a spot in the grassy picnic area around Getaway Glen on the left side of the park Manolo Blahnik Sandals just past the Leaning Palms concession. If you like moving about, people watching, and having sand in your face, go front and center at the surf pool. For your own patch of sand and some peace and quiet, head for the coves and inlets on the left side of the lagoon.

Stingrays sail slowly and gracefully past as you float above. Some of the fish may come within touching distance, but when you reach out to them they scatter in nanoseconds. Also inside the coral reef is an artificial shipwreck where panels of Plexiglas in the hull reveal a pool filled with barracudas and sharks you'll get the heebie jeebies when you see them face to face. The same sensation may carry over to the lagoon, where dozens of southern and cow nosed rays skim around the shallows. Don't be afraid to wade in and play they've had their barbs removed. Often, several rays get together and make loops around the pool, so if you stay in one spot they'll continue to glide past you.
