This is the fourth straight year that Disney Vacation Club has hosted members-only events at a Walt Disney World waterpark. While the format and offerings have not changed much, it still stands as one of the more unique--and complimentary--experiences available to owners.
After the waterpark closes to guests, DVC owners converge for three exclusive hours of fun and refreshments. DVCNews has been fortunate to attend the last 3 events. While crowds have grown a bit, demand has never been higher with reservations filling to capacity in just a few hours.

This was the second of two Typhoon Lagoon events scheduled for 2018. The next member-exclusive Moonlight Magic sessions are scheduled for July 15 and August 15 at the Epcot theme park. Registration has already opened for members with confirmed hotel reservations and all available slots are filled. Additional openings are expected at 9am on Wednesday, June 20th but the remaining capacity is likely to fill very quickly.
