New Waterpark at Disney World-Area Hotel

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Grove Resort & Spa—a Disney World-area hotel that debuted March 2017—opened its new waterpark early this month: the Surfari Water Park, with two water slides, a winding lazy river, and a dual-rider surf simulator. There’s also a kids’ activity pool, and the park’s onsite restaurant, Longboard Bar & Grill, will open in April.

Set on its own parcel of the 106-acre resort and separate from The Grove’s three existing pools, the waterpark is designed as an all-day destination exclusively for hotel guests.

To commemorate the waterpark’s opening, The Grove rolls out its Surf’s Up package. Priced from $160 per night when booked by March 31, 2018 for travel between now and Sept. 3, 2018, the package includes the following:

  • Nightly accommodations in a 2 or 3-bedroom suite
  • One half-hour bodyboard lesson on Surfari’s surf simulator
  • One day complimentary inner tube rental per registered guest
  • $25 resort credit

The Grove’s continued expansion also includes the addition of more than 280 suites to the resort’s existing inventory of 2- and 3-bedroom accommodations. With comparable layouts and upgraded finishes, this new group of suites, like the others, offers ample space and privacy for families or groups; private bedrooms and bathrooms; living and dining areas; full kitchens; screened balconies; and full-size washers and dryers. All accommodations at The Grove provide access to the resort’s full breadth of activities and amenities, including The Springs swimming pools with a zero-entry area; the full-service Escape Spa and fitness center; kayaking, fishing, and paddle boats at Lake Austin Pier; children’s activities center and dedicated recreation team; five dining and drink venues; and Surfari Water Park.
