Summer 2018 at the Theme Parks

It’s going to be another exciting summer for theme parks here in Orlando! Earlier this month, Visit Orlando announced a record setting 72 million visitors to Orlando, who came to see all of the new attractions and events. Here’s an inside look at new happenings this summer:

Walt Disney World

Toy Story Land opens June 30th, 2018 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Check out our blog post for more details on the new land!

Typhoon Lagoon Water Park will be open for select nights for H2O Glow Nights, inviting guests to join the Toy Story crew for an electric glow party celebration with character meet and greets and exclusive dining offerings. Get your tickets for this special nighttime event by calling (407) 939-1872.

Universal Studios 

The world of underground racing made its debut at Universal Studios earlier this month with the opening of Fast & Furious – Supercharged. Guests tour through the Fast & Furious headquarters, past vehicles and artifacts that were used in the films, before ending up in a high-speed race themselves.

A long-awaited new nighttime show is set to premiere this summer to replace Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular. While very little has been revealed about the show, it will feature animated characters, a new storyline, lighting and special effects.

Sea World

Sea World Orlando is home to both exciting thrill rides as well as educational experiences. This summer, the all-new family attraction Infinity Falls seeks to combine both experiences with the world’s tallest drop on a river raft ride while spreading the message of conservation and connection to the world’s rivers.

Over at Aquatica, SeaWorld’s water park, Ray Rush opened in mid-May to excited reviews. This 60-foot tall family raft ride promises multiple ways to slide, splash and soar like never before.
