After Hours Events Will RETURN to a Disney World Water Park in 2023

There’s a lot you can do in Disney World during the day, but sometimes you can accomplish even MORE by going to one of the after-hours events.

By purchasing a ticket to these events, you can stay late in the parks and ride your favorite attractions with shorter wait times. There are often special snacks and treats included in the event ticket, and sometimes unique characters stop by to say hello as well. Now, Disney has announced that one after-hours event will return to Disney World this year!

Disney just shared that H2O Glow Nights are RETURNING to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park in 2023! This late-night event was canceled in 2020, but it returned in the summer of 2022 and will now take place this coming summer as well.

Typhoon Lagoon has been closed for the last few months, but this Disney World water park will finally REOPEN this spring and bring H2O Glow After Hours with it. The after hours event includes special snacks throughout the park, fun entertainment, and access to all the attractions with shorter wait times than you’d see during the day.

Disney H2O Glow Nights will take place on certain nights between May 20th, 2023, and September 2nd, 2023. Here’s a list of the event dates:

  • May 20th and 27th
  • June 3rd, 10th, 17th, and 24th
  • July 1st, 3rd, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th, and 31st
  • August 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th
  • September 2nd

The event is held from 8PM to 11PM, but an event ticket grants you access to the park beginning at 6PM, so you can enjoy it for a couple of hours before the party gets going.

Event tickets go on sale beginning March 3rd, 2023, but if you’re staying at a Disney World hotel (including all Disney-owned resorts, the Shades of Green resort, and the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, and Swan Reserve hotels), you can purchase your tickets a little early, beginning on February 28th. Tickets are limited, so make sure you get yours soon if you want to attend!
