For spring, summer, and the start of Fall in 2023, H2O Glow is back at Typhoon Lagoon – with a few vegan options to enjoy too! Previously called H2O Glow Nights, this after hours party at Typhoon Lagoon was once themed to “Partysaurus Rex,” the animated short shown in front of “Finding Nemo” back in 2012. There was a giant inflatable Rex in his Partysaurus look and a lot of glowing, extra fun touches. You can see more about that version of the event on our original H2O Glow Nights post from 2018. Back then, there were a lot more food options (and even last year in 2022 there were more), but we still have a few vegan things to choose from. We recently checked out H2O Glow After Hours and share our experience with you below!
First up, here’s all you need to know about the tickets and dates:

Included in the price of admission is the 3 hour event, plus you can arrive 2 hours in advance, use of all the Typhoon Lagoon attractions, and unlimited popcorn, frozen treats, and soft drinks, plus a souvenir reusable cup to use.
It’s also important to note that these events take place during the rainy season here in central Florida, so rain may be a factor. The show (and event) will go on even in the rain, but will be canceled/closed if there is lightning. It did rain during our visit but didn’t put a damper on the fun!
The next thing to plan ahead for is the food! While the regular water park hours for Typhoon Lagoon were until 8pm, the food locations were closed when we arrived at 6pm. We even planned ahead to be able to try one of the vegan options and were able to mobile order for pick up between 6:25-6:30pm, but when we got there, Typhoon Tilly’s was closed up tight. We did have an amazing cast member, Bob, who helped us out and got us the order we paid for, which we were so incredibly grateful for. But don’t count on that and be aware the regular menu items for the most part will not be available when you arrive at 6pm.
So what were we able to eat during H2O Glow After Hours? We had a special event-only item, the Watermelon Poke Bowl, along with some on-menu items from other locations once they reopened at 8pm. We’ll list them all here:
