TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE!
TIDAL WAVE 8, THURSDAY, JUNE 5 TO SUNDAY, JUNE 8!
What started out as the exclusive evening-hour theme park party for Bears, Cubs, Chubs, Chasers and Admirers at Wet ‘n Wild has now become Tidal Wave Party Weekend! The weekend-long event is centered around the beautiful Holiday Inn Downtown Disney, the official host hotel of the Tidal Wave Party Weekend. The Holiday Inn, an official Downtown Disney Resort area hotel, is at the heart of the magic as all four Disney World theme parks and Downtown Disney are easily accessed by complimentary shuttles and Downtown Disney restaurants and attractions are also just a short walk away.
Tidal Wave Weekend consists of two separate elements: The Tidal Wave Party, a six-hour private event held from 6pm to midnight at Wet ‘n Wild, one of Orlando’s premier water attractions, on Friday, June 6th; and a weekend-long schedule of pool parties at our Host Hotel, the Holiday Inn Downtown Disney. We secure the entire 325-room property, as well as overflow blocks of rooms in other hotels within a short walking distance to the Holiday Inn. Both events cater to the Bear, Cub, Chub, Chaser communities, but are open to any and all admirers and supporters.
Planning is just getting under way for Tidal Wave Party 8! Please continue checking the website and our FaceBook pages for all the updates.
