    What's the best viewing spot for the electrical water pageant?

    Hey, Brenda!

    Welcome back! We are so happy to help you plan your Disney vacation!

    The Electrical Water Pageant is one of Walt Disney World's original light shows! I can remember seeing this beautiful display of lights when I was a toddler!

    During my most recent trips to Disney, we had a perfect view from out balcony in Big Pine Key at Disney's Grand Floridian! 

    You can see this water parade from the beach areas of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Contemporary Resort, or Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. All of these locations have plenty of room for guests to enjoy the music and the show! If you decide to enjoy dinner at Disney's Grand Floridian, at Narcoossee's, then you can watch the water pageant from the veranda of this beautiful restaurant. It floats by the Polynesian or Grand Floridian about 9:15 pm each night.  The show doesn't begin until about 10:00 pm at the Contemporary.  

    The last spot to see the floating parade is from the entrance of the Magic Kingdom. This place is typically crowded and is not always available, as it doesn't arrive until about 10:30 pm.  Which means that the Magic Kingdom would have to have late hours to enjoy this show. 

    Enjoy your upcoming trip! If you have more questions, please come back and see us again!

    Happy planning!
