The Walt Disney World Resort is introducing a new, DVC Members-only party this year. As part of Disney's ongoing commitment to create experiences that are available exclusively for DVC Members, the resort is thrilled to announce the Disney Vacation Club Neighborhood Beach Bash, a complimentary after-hours event that will take place at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park and that will be filled with fun, food, and experiences for the entire family.

Nearly all of the water park’s attractions will be open for this event and Members can enjoy light snacks, lemonade, and water as they enjoy time with their family and other Members. Soda, alcohol and other food items will also be available for purchase during the event. As an added bonus, DVC Members and their Guests can enter the park beginning at 7 p.m. to enjoy even more hours of fun.
