Walt Disney World isn’t the only place to celebrate the 4th; you can also celebrate right here with us! Enjoy a special 4th of July pool party, a Gatorland Adventure show, and an after-sunset Patriotic party at Surfari, our on-property water park.

National Water Park Day

Yes, you read that correctly, there is a National Water Park Day! Water Parks have become one of America’s favorite summer pastimes and for good reason. In the heat and excitement of summer, few experiences are as refreshing as splashing, sliding, swimming, and lounging in the cool water. Sunday, July 28th is the special day, and you can enjoy the following at The Grove:

Surfari Pool Party – decorating beach balls, playing pool games, eating snow cones, watermelon bowling, and more.

Gatorland Show – learn all about alligators and, if you dare, touch one!

Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure

Exciting New Experiences at The Theme Parks

Summer is the primary season that the various theme parks inaugurate new experiences and rides. Two major attractions are opening the summer: Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Opening August 29 and Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure – Opening June 13.

Labor Day Festivities

If you’re planning a trip near the end of summer, then we recommend visiting during Labor Day! Across Orlando, there will be parties, festivals, and plenty of people out and about soaking up the final drops of summer. Here at The Grove, our guests will enjoy a special farewell summer pool party, a Gatorland Adventure Show, and a BBQ buffet at Valencia Restaurant.

Honestly, any week or month you decide to visit Orlando will be perfect. Vacationing in Orlando is reliably epic! Between the theme parks, sunshine-filled weather, and beautiful resort amenities, you’ll have memories to last a lifetime.
