‘Teen Beach 2: Beach Party’ Brings Summer Fun to Typhoon Lagoon Water Park

posted on May 27th, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager


As a part of the Coolest Summer Ever celebration here at Walt Disney World Resort, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park will be celebrating the upcoming release of the Disney Channel Original Movie “Teen Beach 2” with a daily “Teen Beach 2: Beach Party.”

Disney Channel Film “Teen Beach 2” Stars Kick Off New “Teen Beach 2:" Beach Party at Walt Disney World Resort

The party, which takes place on the shore of the Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool, features a DJ spinning retro tunes, beach-themed games, hula hoop contests and more. Parties will be held through July 5.

If you plan to visit, keep this in mind – when guests purchase a one-day water park ticket, they can park-hop between the two water parks in the same day that both are open.

“Teen Beach 2″ premieres on Disney Channel on June 26th.

Afterwards, our guests were made honorary Tomorrowland recruiters and were sent back to Magic Kingdom Park with special Tomorrowland pins to give away.

Have you ever noticed the ceiling inside The Land pavilion at Epcot? Next time you’re rushing to Soarin’, waiting to take a trip through Living With The Land, or grabbing a bite to eat at Garden Grill or Sunshine Seasons, be sure to check it out. The ceiling is festooned with four balloons that each represent one of the earth’s seasons.

Each balloon, winter, spring, summer and fall are decorated differently – and the real morning sun shining through makes a lovely accent!

Two performances of “Main Street Electrical Parade”? Dole Whip at 3 a.m.? I can’t imagine a better way to kick off what will for sure be the Coolest Summer Ever at Disney Parks.

The Coolest Summer Ever live stream has concluded.

We’ve officially reached our midpoint of the Coolest Summer Ever 24-hour kickoff event. So far we’ve seen a ton of guests showing off their #DisneySide in some pretty amazing costumes, tagged along while Nate snacked his way through the park (he’s finally finished, by the way), and Steven is continuing his mountain challenge at the park. We also hosted a Disney Parks Blog reader event that included breakfast at Cosmic Ray’s and a screening of “Tomorrowland.”
