    Are there characters at typhoon lagoon

    Hey there, I'd like to wish you a warm water park welcome to planDisney!

    Believe it or not, Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park not only had its own signature character named Lagoona Gator, but I remember special meet and greet appearances back in the day. (This might be a bit of fun Disney history to dive into if you look around online!) Nowadays, you can spot Lagoona Gator's pad nestled beneath the slanting clock tower that bears the "Board Room" sign next to the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool, with some fun details to spot when you peer inside.

    As of the most recent visit I've personally made this year, there are no scheduled Character Appearances to plan for at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park at the current time. In the past, guests have been treated to surprise sightings of Lilo and Stitch on occasion though I have not spotted them over my several most recent visits and the Typhoon Lagoon Cast Members informed me that they are unable to see in advance whether they'll be popping by any time soon. 

    There are two possible ways for guests to have a better chance at spotting Characters and that is by attending one of the following specific kinds of evenings: a special Disney Vacation Club Moonlight Magic Event or a Disney H2O Glow After Hours Event at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon water park. The former requires you to be an eligible Disney Vacation Club owner or their guest, staying at a valid Walt Disney World Resort Hotel while the latter is open for anyone to be able to purchase.

    Characters who have made appearances at these special events in the past include Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Chip and Dale, Genie, Sebastian and even Captain Hook and Mr. Smee to name a few; these appearances however cannot be guaranteed and are always subject to availability and may change without prior notice. As guests, there's simply no telling who'll be making these special appearances in advance!

    My Princely Pick, Tip or Trick:  You might find like we did on one of these evenings that there may not be any particular maps nor signage that tell you exactly where they may show up, but it wouldn't hurt to hang around the place I mentioned Lagoona Gator's little surf shack is located!

    I hope that this was useful to you, and though your name shall continue to be a mystery to us since you didn't put it down this time, we're still always happy to answer any other questions you might have here at planDisney. (And on the bright side, you won't have to worry about signing your name for a sea witch seeking your voice in case you happen to encounter her on your watery wanderings!)

    Here's hoping you can make a splash and find the Characters you seek on your next water park adventure!
