Disney World has confirmed recent rumors that a new family water raft ride is coming to Typhoon Lagoon. In addition to confirming the new ride, that is slated to open in the Spring of 2017, Disney has announced the ride will be named “Miss Fortune Falls”. It will be the longest attraction at any Disney water with a ride time of right around two minutes.
Miss Fortune Falls is a story about the character “Captain Mary Oceaneer”, a treasure hunter who has been living at Typhoon Lagoon after being stranded by a storm. Once guests board the raft they will go through the story of Captain Mary’s past before being set out on a white water adventure that shows them many artifacts and relics from her collection as she has treasure hunted around the world. This is the first new attraction for a Disney Water Park in quite some time and it sounds like the theming alone will be worth the visit.
