    Have ADR for Whispering Canyon Cafe at 5:10 pm on 11/21. Would like to see the Electric Light Pagent before heading back to POR for the night. Do you think that we would have to stay at WL for a long time waiting? Does the ELP run before fireworks at MK?

    Hello Susan!  First, you are going to enjoy the Whispering Canyon Cafe.  The rowdier the better in my opinion!

    Weather permitting, the Electrical Water Pageant (EWP) typically runs nightly beginning at 9:00 p.m. at the Polynesian Resort and circulates around the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake.  If fireworks are scheduled at the Magic Kingdom beginning at 9:00, the pageant will stand by at the Poly and begin immediately following the conclusion of the fireworks.  

    Based on the timing of your dining reservations, you do have quite a wait before it begins.  If you have park tickets, you could always head over to Magic Kingdom for a couple hours or enjoy shopping, etc. at any of the near by resorts.  Here is the complete schedule for the EWP..hopefully you can see it at least once during your vacation!

    Polynesian: 9:00 p.m.
    Grand Floridian: 9:15 p.m.
    Wilderness Lodge: 9:35 p.m.
    Ft. Wilderness: 9:45 p.m.
    Contemporary: 10:05 p.m.
    Magic Kingdom: 10:20 p.m. (during extended Magic Kingdom hours)
