Catch A Wave At Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Surf School

Though the beautiful shores of Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon make an inviting location for spending the afternoon on a boat, there's no swimming in the natural waterways of the Walt Disney World Resort. And though Walt Disney had dreamed of having a wave machine send ocean-like surf onto the shores of the Polynesian, the erosion proved to be too much for the man made waterway to handle. So what's a surf loving vacationer looking for some tropical fun to do? Head over to Disney's Typhoon Lagoon!

Water based adventure takes on a whole new wave with Surf School at Typhoon Lagoon. You can learn to surf from the pros on your Disney vacation. Guests are encouraged to make reservation to learn how to cut, carve and "hang 10'' in the 2.75-million-gallon wave pool. If you've always dreamed of catching a wave this is the perfect opportunity to participate in this 2.5-hour program that available on select mornings at the park before it opens. With your pro by your side you'll learn the basics and get a taste of this thrilling water sport.

If you already know your way on a board - you can book a private session of 100 waves all for you or share them with some friends. Disney's Typhoon Lagoon is home to the world's largest wave machine that blasts out a wall of surf that can tower up to six feet high every 90 seconds. Your Disney vacation just got a little more exciting, didn't it? Take a peek at this video featuring Red Bull's rising stars on the Disney waves.

At time of publication, Surf School is limited to 12 guests per session, age 8 and over only, with a cost of $165 for each lesson.
