Updated Information About New Typhoon Lagoon Attraction

by on January 17, 2017

Well, it appears, according to Disney, as though there is a bit of a change when it comes to the new Typhoon Lagoon family raft ride. The attraction, which was once called Miss Fortune Falls, is now apparently going to be called Miss Adventure Falls.

And let me tell you, Miss Adventure Falls looks incredible, at least according to this concept art!

Miss Adventure Falls will still feature the story of sea-faring treasure hunter, Captain Mary Oceaneer. She traveled across the sea collecting unique artifacts before she became stranded by the rogue storm.

During the attraction, which is the longest attraction at a Disney Water Park, Guests will board a 4-person treasure raft and travel up a conveyor belt that then takes you straight into the action. Along the way, Guests will be able to spot artifacts that had been collected, as well as meeting Mary’s old diving partner, an Audio-Animatronics parrot, who just so happens to still be hunting for treasures at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon.

Miss Adventure Falls will be located near Crush n’ Gusher and will clock in at approximately two minutes. It looks like it will be a great adventure, indeed!

We all know how popular La Cava del Tequila is at Epcot and now it looks like you’re going to have a new place to get your favorite beverage in the Mexico Pavilion. A new outdoor tequila restaurant, Choza Tequila will open outside of the pavilion and will serve up margaritas, as well as Mexican cuisine like tacos, empanadas, chips and fresh guacamole.

This appears to be a replacement for the recently closed margarita stand, but with the addition of an expanded menu, it will be even more delicious.

Looks like 2017 is looking a little better!

Stay tuned for more info about Choza Tequila on the blog!
