Guests visit Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon for thrills like the Crush ‘n’ Gusher water coaster and Gang Plank Falls. This June, they’ll hit the water park’s wave pool to help break a world record and spread an important message about teaching children to swim.
More than 500 guests of all ages at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon at the Walt Disney World Resort joined more than 10,000 participants on four continents for the record-breaking World’s Largest Swimming Lesson on June 3.
Participants at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon also received a free DVD, Disney’s Wild About Safety with Timon and Pumbaa: Safety Smart in the Water. In the DVD, Timon and Pumbaa help children learn that fun in the water starts with safety.
Three-time Olympic gold medalist Rowdy Gaines joined Mickey Mouse and Goofy just outside the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool for the official start to the World’s Largest Swimming Lesson.
