Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon is ready to turn the lights on a night. Starting on May 20 and continuing through Sept. 2 on select nights, H2O Glow After Hours returns to the water theme park.

The glowing guest-favorite celebration gives everyone easier access to their favorite Typhoon Lagoon thrills by allowing guests to enjoy their favorite attractions outside under the stars for three hours (8-11 p.m.) after the water park closes to daytime visitors. Tickets to the limited-capacity event already are on sale at the Walt Disney World Resort website.

H2O events include: 

  • Décor with glowing lighting effects.
  • DJ dance events.
  • Pop-up appearances by characters.
  • Exclusive area for adults only.
  • Free popcorn, ice cream desserts, and some beverages.
  • Exclusive food and drink with a glow theme.

At Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, food and drink offerings continue to be a top draw, and this year, there will be a number of new products, including: fruity new Dole Whip flavors like watermelon, mango, pineapple, strawberry and raspberry available at Snack Shack; a pineapple upside down cone at Happy Landings; and a barbeque chicken and grilled pineapple flatbread at Leaning Palms.

Adults can pair the bites with tropical beverage items. Among the new drink offerings are the Kungaloosh Kooler, the Crush ‘N’ Gushed Red and White Sangrias and the Mayday Mojito Flight.

The Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool, one of the water park’s iconic features, will also be back for visitors to enjoy. The attraction, which has the largest outdoor wave pool in North America, employs cutting-edge technology to produce controlled waves up to six feet high. For groups of up to 25, “private surf” is an option, while “open surf” is available for smaller groups and involves 10 waves.
