Miss Fortune Falls Family Attraction Finally Announced for Typhoon Lagoon Water Park

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

We told you this first a few weeks back, but Disney today is finally talking about the new “family-friendly” water attraction they are adding to Typhoon Lagoon: Miss Fortune Falls.


Opening in 2017 at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park, the attraction brings to life the story of Captain Mary Oceaneer, a treasure-hunting heroine who was stranded by a rogue storm. Once aboard treasure rafts, guests will embark on a journey through the Captain’s past before plunging into a white water adventure where guests can see unique artifacts that Captain Mary Oceaneer collected on her hunts around the world.

With a ride time of two minutes, Miss Fortune Falls will be the longest attraction at any Disney water park.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • Who cares the reality is my family of 5 had been trying to get to Disney for 9 yrs! They are so over priced that without truly sacrificing something important such as education or really going into debt for a weeks vacation it is just not affordable. $7000 is far too much money and that is resort and airfare and park tickets. Moderate resort no less, We would still have to spend another $1000 on food, at the very least. So going on an attraction for whole 2 min maybe worth $10grand to some, but for this family we would rather not waste out hard earned money on this non sense! Unless Disney becomes more affordable, which I do not forsee, we are out.

    • Disney can be very affordable if you do some [email protected] 1. Stay offsite there are a ton of hotels/homes and if you stay at a Disney Springs hotel u have transportation from there or walk over to catch a bus to a resort then 2 a park. 2. Purchase your tickets now Disney used have a long expiration but now they expire a year after purchase but the full amount spent goes towards new tickets ( I got tickets in my account that expire in 2036 I don’t use them buy new ones because price going to go up)3. Buy gift cards to pay Sam’s club sells disney gift cards and some airlines are a discount, target red card holders get discounts on gift card, and disney vacation account can help save 4. Budget for the parks u can bring in food and very small coolers, also can leave and come back to eat, plan meals and all menus and prices are online. 5 you don’t have to go to every park just budget for 1, do a water park, universal 1 day, it’s so much to you at Disney some people visit resorts.. I worked many moons in reservations for Disney…

    • Did you honestly say sacrificing education?
      ‘ oh no! I cant miss ONE week of school!! ‘
      Give me a break.
      I think you are coo coo for cocoapuffs

      Let me suggest that instead of writing long posts on sites based around a place you seem to hate, you instead use that time to go out and find a better or second job.
      I’m sorry your current finances don’t allow you to enjoy Disney any more. I hope you’re able to improve them.

    • Its more than one ride! It is the full experience of disney. $ 10,000.00 is to much for you to spend on a lifetime of memories and fun, with a bunch of educational things also, that is not worth it to you and your family? Sorry you feel that way

  • Maybe planning and budgeting is what you need to learn . I am tired of people saying its over priced . I have friends that go to mexico $7000.00 for 2 people for 7 days. I can go to disney for 9 days , 4 people, food and all staying on site. Including airfare $4000.00 to $5,000.00. Also using disneys payment plans or savings plans you can spread the costs out.
