Disney Doing MORE Construction at Desolate-Looking Typhoon Lagoon – Inside the Magic
Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park has been closed since Walt Disney World Resort closed during the COVID-19 pandemic in the spring of 2020. Although Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park has since reopened, Typhoon Lagoon remains empty – and looks more or less deserted from.
Twitter user Bioreconstruct has been sharing photos of the desolate-looking theme park all summer, including the following image of the reclaimed wave pool:

However, Disney recently applied for construction permits around the closed water park, which many Disney Park fans hope is a sign that we’ll be getting a reopening announcement soon.
Now, a new one license indicates that work will be done on the Ketchakiddee Creek area of the Disney World Park. The work will be performed by the S&S Tile Roofing Company, based in Longwood, Florida.

While Disney hasn’t made any official announcements about a reopening date for Typhoon Lagoon, roofing could be a good sign.
Kethakiddee Creek is officially described as:
Kids under four feet can frolic in shallow pools populated by whimsical crocodiles, spouting seals and playful elephants. Let them explore mini slides, splash in a waterfall cave and aim from a water cannon aboard the leaky tugboat SS Squirt.
Kid-friendly tunes and a small sandy beach make this the perfect playground for water-loving kids.
