AdventureAs night falls at Walt Disney World®, head on over to the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake to catch a glimpse of a nighttime water spectacular.

Floating across the water are 25-foot-tall screens of lights that make up the Electrical Water Pageant!

Although the show has changed since its debut in 1971, it still remains as one of the few original, opening year shows to still be running at Walt Disney World®.

This show is truly a sight to see as the water lights up and can be seen from several Magic Kingdom® Park area resorts.

Beginning at 9:00 PM, here you will find a list of resorts you can catch a glimpse of the show from:

Disney’s Polynesian Resort- 9:00 PM

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa- 9:15 PM

Disney’s Wilderness Lodge- 9:30 PM

Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground- 9:45 PM

Disney’s Contemporary Resort- 10:10 PM

Right outside the entrance of Magic Kingdom® Park- Beginning at 10:35 PM, during extended theme park hours only.

*Note that when the Magic Kingdom® Park fireworks are scheduled for 9:00 PM, the Electrical Water Pageant runs about 7-20 minutes later.

How many of you have seen the Electrical Water Pageant? Have you noticed any changes over the years, and which float is your favorite to see?

    Love the Electrical Water Pageant. It would be nice to live close to WDW so I could experience it more often.

    Have an awesome day!!

  2. We love sitting on the Poly beach (or the dock at Ft Wilderness) and wait for this Water Pageant. I like the leaping dolphins and King Triton the best! The turtle is cute too. The first time we watched it was during our honeymoon in 1978. We had no idea what was going on – we were in our tent at the campground (in the “preferred” sites so we were pretty close to the beach) and all of a sudden we heard this crazy loud music coming from the beach. So we ran out to see what it was. What a fun surprise!!
    We haven’t been to Disney in 5 years so I don’t know if there have been any changes.

  3. Agreed – the family and I always love to end the day with the EWP !!!
