Happy Landings Ice Cream

Happy Landings is a quick-service dining location alongside Castaway Creek at Typhoon Lagoon. You’ll find Happy Landings on the far side of the lazy river behind Leaning Palms.

If you’re floating down the lazy river, you’ll notice a giant ice cream cone hanging over the river advertising the stop!

Happy Landings offers ice cream and frozen treats. In addition, you can purchase the popular Sand Pail sundae at this location.

The Sand Pail is a mixture of chocolate and vanilla soft-serve ice cream that comes with pieces of a waffle cone, oreo cookies, sprinkles, caramel, and hot fudge. It comes in a sand pail and is topped with whipped cream and a cherry!

Tip: If you purchase a refillable mug, there’s a beverage station located on the side of Happy Landings.

The mug runs $11.99 for the day and can be refilled at any self-service beverage station throughout the park.

Leaning Palms

Leaning Palms is the primary counter service dining location at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. The quick-service restaurant is located near the front of the park and is where most guests end up having lunch.

While I enjoy Leaning Palms, it’s important to note that Typhoon Tilly’s usually has several excellent entree options. Unfortunately, most guests get the impression that Leaning Palms is the only place to eat a meal because they see it when they first enter the park.

Therefore, it might be worth browsing menus on the My Disney Experience app before you decide on a lunch spot. I often order Typhoon Tilly’s and then meet my son for lunch at Leaning Palms. (He orders allergy-friendly chicken tenders from Leaning Palms.)

Items on the menu at Leaning Palms include:

  • Jerk Shrimp Rice Bowl
  • Chicken Wrap
  • Pepperoni Flatbread
  • Chicken or Tofu Rice Bowl
  • All-Beef Hot Dog
  • Island Crunch Chicken Sandwich
  • Cheese Flatbread
  • Caribbean-spiced Salad with Chicken
  • Angus Cheeseburger

Plant-based Options:

  • Impossible Island Burger
  • Crabless Crab Cakes
  • Roasted Tofu Rice Bowl
  • Caribbean-spiced salad

Kids’ Meals include:

  • Individual Cheese Pizza
  • All-Beef Hot Dog

You can preview the entire menu with prices here on Disney’s site.

Let’s Go Slurpin’

Let’s Go Slurpin’ is the main bar at Typhoon Lagoon. This beverage spot is designed to look like a beach shack along the shores of the wave pool.

This beachside bar offers a few of Typhoon Lagoon’s signature drinks, like the Typhoon Tilly and the Hang Ten Mojito.

You can also pick up various beers and wines at this location.

Lowtide Lou’s

Lowtide Lou’s is a quick-service location on the far backside of the water park near Keelhaul Falls.

Most of the items are snack bites or premade entree items. Those items include:

  • Shrimp Louie Lettuce Wrap
  • Cauliflower Tabbouleh (Plant-Based)
  • Mickey Pretzels
  • Jalapeno Cheese Pretzel
  • Stuffed Cream Cheese Pretzel
  • Chicken Wrap

Additionally, there are a few kids’ meals available.

Preview the menu with prices here on Disney’s site.

Lowtide Lou’s is a great place to grab a bite to eat if you’re spending a good portion of your day at Ketchakiddee Creek, the children’s play area. There are tons of seating areas around the aquatic play area and a few private places toward the back.

Snack Shack

Snack Shack is a quick-service dining location immediately next to Typhoon Tilly’s. Both of these locations are on the right after you pass Miss Adventure Falls.

There’s one big reason you might want to stop at Snack Shack for a treat. Dole Whip.

This location is where you can find Dole Whip treats at Typhoon Lagoon. They are as follows:

  • Hei Hei Cone
  • Motunui Island Twist
  • Dole Whip Soft-Serve

Dole Whip flavors at Typhoon Lagoon include pineapple, lime, mango, and raspberry. You can enjoy them served in a cup or a plant-based waffle cone.

In addition, you might also enjoy a cocktail treat mixed with Dole Whip.

You can preview what options are available here on the menu.

Typhoon Tilly’s

Typhoon Tilly’s is our last formal dining location at Typhoon Lagoon. This counter service dining location is one of the best options for a meal at the water park.

You’ll find Typhoon Tilly’s along the far side of the wave pool before getting to Humunga Kowabunga and the Storm Slides. This walk-up quick service is inspired by the shipwreck atop Mount Mayday.

From my experience, the food offerings at Typhoon Tilly’s are a step above Leaning Palms. Everything here leans more toward comfort food than fast food.

Menu items include:

  • Land and Sea (Fish and Chicken Dinner)
  • Crabless Crab Cakes (Plant-Based)
  • Fish Tacos
  • Chicken Breast Strips
  • Shrimp Wrecked Salad
  • Hand-battered Fish Basket

Kids’ Meals include:

  • Chicken Breast Strips
  • Turkey Sandwich on Whole Wheat
  • PB&J Uncrustables

On my last visit, I enjoyed the Shrimp Wrecked Salad. The salad was a mixture of greens, strawberries, feta cheese, pecans, and a raspberry vinaigrette dressing.

This salad was an excellent option.

Other Dining Options at Typhoon Lagoon

In addition to the above dining locations at Typhoon Lagoon, a few other kiosks offer snacks, beverages, and cocktails.

However, some of these locations are seasonal. So they may or may not be open on your visit.

In addition, most of these kiosks are not listed on Typhoon Lagoon’s map. I’ll provide location details, but they might be harder to find.

Joffrey’s at Typhoon Lagoon

Coffee Lovers will be glad to know there are two Joffrey’s stands at Typhoon Lagoon. The first is located near the front of the park across the walkway from Singapore Sal’s.

This location has coffee, donuts, and several other treats.

The second Joffrey’s is located a little closer to the wave pool. This Joffrey’s is extremely popular because it offers mini donuts with chocolate dipping sauce.

Funnel Cakes at Typhoon Lagoon

What would a trip to a water park be like without funnel cakes? I don’t know about you, but funnel cakes have always been a quintessential water park treat in my neck of the woods.

There’s just something about enjoying crispy, sweet, and deliciously hot theme park food on a hot day at a water park. I related it to craving ice cream when it’s freezing outside.

The funnel cake cart at Typhoon Lagoon is located to the far right side of the wave pool. You can get your funnel cake with or without ice cream.

Popcorn, Snacks, and Arctic Dots at Typhoon Lagoon

Toward the front of the park, across the walkway from Singapore Sal’s, there are two kiosks One of these stands has popcorn, fruit, Mickey ice cream bars, popsicles, sodas, and refillable mugs.

Here is a look at a few healthy items.

The other stand sells Arctic Dots, which is the same as Dippin’ Dots ice cream.

There are usually a variety of flavors available.

Hammer Head Fred’s Dive

A few years back, Typhoon Lagoon was home to a significant shark reef attraction where you could swim with sharks and other sea life. Unfortunately, that attraction is now permanently closed.

However, there is a vast area of land where the attraction was located. That land is now primarily used as a seating area.

Toward the back of the area, you’ll find Hammer Head Fred’s Dive Bar. This bar is only open seasonally.

But if you have any interest, you can check the area out. There are a few cool water features and a pretty neat photo spot inside the jaws of a shark!

High ‘N’ Dry

High ‘N’ Dry is a kiosk located toward the locker rental area at the front of the park. You can rent towels and lockers from this location.

In addition, this kiosk doubles as a bar, and they have something a little extra special that you won’t find just anywhere else.

They have a Jack and Coke and a Rum and Coke frozen drink machine. Per the cast member, these are relatively strong drinks.

And here are the different beers that were available on my last visit.

Surf Doggies

Surf Doggies is another quick service stand located out by the Wave Pool. If you haven’t figured it out yet, the wave pool at Typhoon Lagoon is vast.

These kiosks are spread out around the feature attraction, so you’ll have to look for them.

Surf Doggies has items like sausages, turkey legs, and maybe even a specialty hot dog when it’s available.

Tropical Amity Outpost

Tropical Amity Outpost is a quick service located at the pool near Crush ‘N’ Gusher. This location usually has a variety of snacks like pretzels, empanadas, and churros, along with various beverages.

This location is open seasonally.
