Once known as the largest themed water park on the Disney World property until Blizzard Beach opened, Typhoon Lagoon continues to offer water adventures that visitors can’t get enough of. Between snorkeling tropical waters with live sharks, plunging down rushing rapids, soaking in the sun in the giant wave pool or simply gliding down a lazy river, you’ll want to rest up for more adventure in one of the many vacation rentals near Disney World’s Typhoon Lagoon.
Staying In the Disney Resort
Hotels on the Walt Disney World Resort property are located about a mile away from the Typhoon Lagoon water park. You have your pick of any one of the luxury or less pricey hotels that accommodate families. Just about all of the hotels on the property are mini-resorts with pools to keep you cool even when you’re away from the lagoon. Just take note that rooms in various hotels could be timeshares, condos or traditional hotel rooms for rent. That means you may not have daily housekeeping service, but you might have a washer/dryer right in your unit or room. Most of the Disney Resort hotels have free shuttle (or boat) service throughout the theme and water parks so you’ll save the hassle of driving and parking fees.
Just Outside the Resort
Knowing where to stay in Orlando can make your vacation that much easier when it comes to getting to and from the theme parks, including Typhoon Lagoon. The address of Typhoon Lagoon is 1145 East Buena Vista Boulevard in Buena Vista, so anything near that area is ideal, and there are plenty of options in all price ranges and levels of luxury. Check out hotels on or near Route 4, Epcot Center Drive and World Center Drive to make sure you’re closest to the water park’s action.
Vacation Rental Homes near Disney World
If you and your family prefer to stretch your legs and stay in more of a home away from home, consider a vacation rental home or condo rather than a hotel room or suite. There are plenty of these types of rentals even closer to Typhoon Lagoon than hotels. The areas are family friendly, with plenty of activities on the grounds for kids and adults. If you prefer to stay at a more spacious entire vacation home rental, try Kissimmee, which is about 12 miles away from Typhoon Lagoon — about a half-hour drive. All you have to do is follow US-192 West, and that road leads to everything Disney.
