The Electrical Water Pageant is an electrical light parade that floats through the Seven Seas Lagoon and the nearby Bay Lake that many guests remember watching when they were children. The floats depict real sea creatures and mythical ones, too. The musical-style is reminiscent of the Main Street Electrical Parade, but the Electrical Water Pageant utilizes a number of different songs. Also like the Main Street Electrical Parade, the pageant has a patriotic ending with glowing American Flags, Stars, and patriotic music. This is a great fun and free activity to take in, you do not have to be staying at the resorts to go and visit the pageant. Taking pictures can be a bit challenging, but are a great addition to any vacation scrapbook!
There are several great locations from which to view the Electrical Water Pageant:
- Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
- Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
- Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground
The Electrical Water Pageant can also be viewed from outside the Magic Kingdom at the turnstiles but only when the park is open late. It is also possible to see the pageant from the Ferry boat if you are able to time it right, or the dock at the Ticket and Transportation Center.
It is best to check with the resort hotel front desk for Electrical Water Pageant times because the times can be impacted by the weather and by the Magic Kingdom fireworks show times. The show is subject to cancellation due to bad weather.
