At Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park, Guests can snorkel with sharks in a coral reef, plunge down rapids, float along in the lazy river and even sunbathe on a white sandy beach! Everybody knows that all of that slip-sliding down water slides and riding waves can work up a mighty big hunger. Luckily for Guests, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon has several quick service and snack locations to help quiet those growling stomachs.
During our most recent visit, we dined at two of the quick service restaurants within Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. One of those was Typhoon Tilly’s and the other was Snack Shack. Located next door to one another and sharing the same outdoor seating, these two counter service eateries are great for parties wanting to dine together but wanting or needing more food options. There are condiment and utensil stations just outside of the seating area.
DIStracted Tip: Picnic table seating is outdoors but undercover. If you do not need an entire table, please be courteous and offer to share your table with other Guests.
As we all know, menus at Walt Disney World Resort change often but when we were there, Snack Shack offered some delicious entrees such as the Cornbread Waffle Sandwich, Fruit and Waffle Sandwich and a fabulous sounding Shrimp Wrecked Salad. My husband, a true Southern man who loves cornbread, ordered the cornbread waffle sandwich which was filled with BBQ pork and a creamy coleslaw. Although the waffle that he received wasn’t stuffed as full as the picture on the menu, he was more than satisfied with the sandwich.
My son and I ordered our entrees right next door at Typhoon Tilly’s. As you can see from the menu board, Typhoon Tilly’s offered at least six entrees for its Guests. The fish basket that Hunter ordered had a nice crunchy batter on the outside and moist fish on the inside and was served with an order of french fries. My entree selection was the fried shrimp basket which also came with fries. Guests also have the option of going the more healthy route and having apple slices with their entree. As I said, we are from Louisiana where seafood is an everyday staple so we are somewhat hesitant about ordering it elsewhere. Our fears were for naught as we were very happy with our choices.
Because we were using the Disney Dining Plan, we were also entitled to a non-alcoholic beverage and a dessert. As we usually do, we each ordered something different so that we can have a sampling of the others should we decide to do so. Chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookies and key lime pie were our choices and all were very good.
Both Typhoon Tilly’s and Snack Shack are considered quick service restaurants but some of the items on their menus were considered snack options. They were clearly labeled with a purple DP but if you aren’t sure about the options available to you, the Disney cast members are always more than happy to help you out. There are several other quick service restaurants and snack locations scattered throughout Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon so no matter where you are within the park, you’re sure to find something to satisfy those hunger pains.
