Welcome to those of you joining me from Disney Donna Kay and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail.
One of my favorite Disney hidden treasures at Walt Disney World is the Electrical Water Pageant. I discovered this hidden gem on my second Disney vacation when my family stayed at Wilderness Lodge. The parade is similar in style to the Main Street Electrical Parade; In fact, the Electrical Water Pageant was the inspiration for the Main Street Electrical Parade.
The Electrical Water Pageant debuted in 1971 for Walt Disney World’s Dedication Day. This water parade features 14 spectacular floats and an energetic soundtrack. Though the pageant has undergone a few changes over the years, the current version of the Electrical Water Pageant is something you will not want to miss on your next Disney vacation.
The Electrical Water Pageant takes place on Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. It features sea creatures made from hundreds of sparkling lights. The music for the parade, much like the floats themselves, is also in a style similar to that of the Main Street Electrical Parade. The parade’s soundtrack features several Disney songs, in addition to some patriotic tunes which play as the American flag and some patriotic stars pass by.
This wonderful water parade can be seen from several different Disney resorts. Currently, the pageant can be seen from the Polynesian at 9pm, the Grand Floridian at 9:15pm, Wilderness Lodge at 9:30pm, Fort Wilderness at 9:45pm, and the Contemporary at 10:10pm. If Wishes begins at 10pm, the Electrical Water Pageant will be seen from the Contemporary at the conclusion of the fireworks show. During extended theme park hours, the Electrical Water Pageant can also be seen outside the entrance to Magic Kingdom at 10:35pm.
I loved viewing the Electrical Water Pageant from Wilderness Lodge! It is an experience I will never forget. Though I haven’t seen the pageant on every trip to Disney, it is one I highly recommend. For me, there is something extra magical about a beautiful light parade – and this one takes place on water! Have you experienced the Electrical Water Pageant at Walt Disney World?
