It may even be a surprise that a culinary team works at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon as a water Park. Although it may not have sit-down restaurants and a more casual dining scene, the food isn’t any less impressive.

I swear our culinary team keeps opening new doors that lead to incredible new and innovative food offerings all around parks and resorts.”
