Walt Disney World is reviving a long-running tradition in a new location by offering Disney Grad Nite H2O events at Typhoon Lagoon beginning in April 2017.
For decades, Central Florida senior high school students celebrated their impending matriculation with private all-night Grad Night events inside Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. Walt Disney World Grad Nites were discontinued after 2011, though similar events continue at Disneyland and Universal Orlando.
Now, Grad Nite will return beginning in April 2017 with a watery new format. On select Friday nights in April 2017, Typhoon Lagoon will be transformed into a teen beach party, featuring Disney characters, food and beverage, music, DJ entertainment and dance parties, along with the water park’s attractions.
Tickets to Grad Nite H2O will cost $55 plus tax, including food and a commemorative beverage mug. Tickets cannot be purchased independently; the event is offered to participating school groups only.
Interested schools can register now for more information at DisneyGradNite.com.
