Our family loves Typhoon Lagoon. We love the Surf pool. We were traveling with friends, and they had a 17 year old son, and to surprise him, they signed him up for surfing lessons. It was an amazing opportunity for him. He loved it. I like the slides, and the Surf pool. We love to go to the beach, and body surfing in the ocean is a favorite. The waves actually break and by breaking I mean white caps.
It has all the typical water park slides and lazy rivers. At Typhoon Lagoon, you have the opportunity to swim with tropical fish in the Shark Reef. It's located towards the back of the park. There are sharks, but no worries, they are behind plexiglass. We brought all our own snorkel stuff, and found we had to use the Disney equipment. So, don't bring your own, you will be leaving it on a chair while you swim. There is no height limit requirement to swim with the fish, but you must be 10 or older.
My boys weren't able to swim with the fish, but they were able to go to this underwater viewing area and they could see the fish and the snorkelers.
