    Electrical Water Pageant

    Does anyone know if they will be running the Electrical Water Pageant in November?

    The other question I have is, if you are not staying at a Hotel where it can be seen from, can you take a bus there to see it? I'm guessing you can, and would assume that you can take a bus from that hotel back to Downtown Disney to get to your hotel. Has anyone done that, or have any suggestions on how to see it?

    Thanks,

    Ron

    It looks like the water pageant has started running agian.
    We saw it last year in November. We were staying at Port
    Orleans so we decided to eat dinner one night at the
    Whispering Canyon Cafe at Wilderness Lodge. After dinner
    we saw the water pageant from the beach at the Lodge.
    Very nice, and hardly anyone around to see it. Romantic.
    We did have to bus back to Downtown Disney and then
    grab another bus to Port Orleans, but it wasn't too
    bad. We'll be doing something similar this time around.
    Maybe we'll try the Polyensian! Good luck Ron!

    Matt,

    Thanks for the info, I figured I would have to bus back to Downtown Disney, I think my son will really get a kick out of seeing the floats on the lake.

    I have seen the EWP a few times, but can't recall if there is any music/narration that goes along with it. Help?

    There's music! Kinda like the MSEP, which came after and was inspired by
    the Water Pageant.
    I've put early water pageant music on my site for a limited time if you
    want to hear it!

    It'll only be there for a week or so though.

    Thanks a million. What kind of WDW items are you looking for for your collection? I really like the Disney Pix site, especially the aerial views of WDW.

    It's been a few years since I've seen the EWP, but it's still one of my faves. It should be visible at all the monorail resorts, but the actual time depends on time of year. They should be able to provide a schedule or there should be one online to show when it's best seen from each resort.

    Hey, speaking of the music to the EWP, mom found a 45 record (picturedisc) of the original EWP music. It's dated 1972. Matt, thanks for posting the link!! Sounds awesome!! Thanks!!

    Allearsnet.com has some info at http://allearsnet.com/tp/ewp.htm
    It includes times, but you may want to check with your resort to make sure.
