The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort is hosting the first-ever Sandtastic Weekends in late summer.
This new event is planned for August 26-28 and September 2-4 at the resort. Sandtastic Weekends are open to hotel guests and the general public.
The event will feature 100 tons of sand art designed by professional artists from Team Sandtastic. The sand art will be created on the resort’s private beach.
Guests can learn the art of sand sculpting during planned clinics, and can even take part in an amateur sand sculpting contest. Guests can also challenge the pros in a “speed sculpting” demonstration.
The weekends aren’t just about sand art though. The resort’s food and beverage team will be creating indoor and outdoor food for guest. Other events include games on the beach, a DJ, and a campfire with s’mores.
The September weekend will be extended into Labor Day, September 5 and guests will have a chance to celebrate the Kickoff Classic football game between Florida State and Ole Miss. Special sand sculptures will be created that weekend honoring the teams, and the causeway will be lit in the teams’ colors.
Rates for the Sandtastic Weekends start at $168 per night.
