When Walt Disney World Resort reopened in July 2020 after a four-month pandemic shutdown, it did so with a phased approach. This meant certain experiences – many of which, like fireworks shows, have now returned – were not available.

Disney World’s two water parks – Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon – also remained closed when the theme park reopened last year. And while Blizzard Beach reopened to guests earlier this year, Typhoon Lagoon remains closed with no opening date in sight.

Now Disney has filed several building permits that could signal good things to families hoping to visit the popular water park again soon. While Typhoon Lagoon is unlikely to reopen during the winter season – when even central Florida sometimes gets too cold to swim – Walt Disney World Resort officials could possibly prepare for a reopening date in the spring of 2022, though it’s important to note that nothing has been confirmed at this point.

The permits are valid for electrical work at three locations – Singapore Sal’s, Beach huts, and Toilets with buoys and seagulls. Maddox Electric Company, based in Winter Garden, Florida, is listed as the contractor for all three projects.

In addition to souvenir stands and the Ketchakiddie Creek kids’ zone, Typhoon Lagoon also has plenty of rides for the older family members, including North America’s largest wave pool, the rollercoaster-inspired Crush’n’Gusher water slide, and the all-dark Humunga Kowabunga body slide!
