    On 6/25 we have ADR at Ohana for 6:35 PM. We plan to stay afterward to see the electrical water pageant. What's the best way to pass the time between dinner and the pageant at the Poly? Best spot to view the pageant? We'll be 2 adults and a 9yo.

    Hello, Elizabeth. Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your questions.

    I could hang out at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort all day long so killing some time in the evening is going to fly by. First of all, savor your dinner! 'Ohana is one of my family's favorite places to eat at Walt Disney World. Everything is great from the atmosphere to the food. Since your reservation is at 6:35 pm, I estimate you'll be done eating between 7:45 and 8:00 pm. If you're in the mood for an after dinner cocktail or mocktail, I suggest heading downstairs to Trader Sam's Grog Grotto. Even though it's considered a bar, it's super family friendly and my daughter loves hanging out in there. With every drink that's ordered it's like a mini show being put on. If you order the Shrunken Zombie Head, for instance, your server might bring it over to you pretending to be one. It's a pretty cool place. If you didn't save room for beverages, maybe some shopping will interest you. Disney's Polynesian Village Resort has two really great gift shops. My daughter especially loves the one upstairs, Moana Mercantile Souvenir Shop. After that, it'll be about 9:00 pm and that's when the Electrical Water Pageant will be floating by.  You're also in luck because the Happily Ever After Fireworks Show at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park also lights up the sky at 9:15 pm on the night you'll be there. You'll have a great view of both shows from Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. 

    I hope this helps give you some ideas on passing the time. Enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
