According to Disney legend, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, one of 2 Water Parks in Walt Disney World, was created in the wake of the storm-of-storms. During the meteorological disturbance, surfboards were hurled into palm trees and boats were tossed through roofs of beach houses and onto mountains.
A shrimp boat, Miss Tilly, journeying from Florida, found itself swept up by the twisting tides of the fierce typhoon. The storm's force propelled the boat onto the peak of the volcanic mountain, Mount Mayday.
To this day Miss Tilly, the shrimp boat, still sits precariously perched. Every half hour, the boat's whistle blows and the volcano attempts to dislodge its burden by bursting, causing an enormous geyser of water to shoot skyward.
After the storm swept out to sea, the Disney legend concludes, Mount Mayday became the source for many waterslides. Surrounding the mountain, a 56-acre tropical paradise was formed - full of waterways, rivers, rapids and slides. Enjoy Disney's Typhoon Lagoon, a sun-drenched Water Park !
