New Summer Entertainment at Disney Water Parks Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon ® and Disney’s Blizzard Beach ® water parks are always popular spots to cool off during the hot summer months and this year, the water parks are even “cooler” with new entertainment, dining options, and Extra Magic Hours that are really making a splash with guests this summer.

Character meet-and-greets are a huge part of Disney’s ® magic and this summer you can find some of Disney’s ® most popular characters roaming both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach’s many thrill water rides. Lilo & Stitch can be spotted soaking up the sun outside of the High N’ Dry sundries shop at Typhoon Lagoon now through Sept. 8 and Goofy will be staying cool at Blizzard Beach as he mingles with guests for the rest of the summer.

And if all of the new entertainment at Disney’s ® water parks has you working up quite an appetite make sure you check out the new dining option at Typhoon Lagoon. Just like it’s name, Tropicalamity isn’t your ordinary water park dining option. Featuring a variety of unique meals like the jerk pita wrap, citrus chicken salad, hot meatball subs and cold Italian subs, this new restaurant will give you a taste of the Caribbean without leaving Florida!

But perhaps the best part about the new offerings at Disney’s ® water parks in Summer 2012 is that you can now enjoy all of the splashy fun for longer with Extra Magic hours. With summer comes long days, that’s why both Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon ® and Disney’s Blizzard Beach ® are opening earlier on select days to make sure guests get the most out of their hot summer days. At Typhoon Lagoon guests can take advantage of additional extra magic hours Saturday mornings before the park opens from 8-9 through August 18 and at Blizzard Beach, the park opens early on Tuesday mornings, from 8-9 through August 14. Please note, Extra Magic Hours are only available for guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels like Disney's All-Star Sports Resort.
