    Hi Doug, love your answers! My DH & I will be there, with our 3 kids (9, 5, 4), in a few weeks for our anniversary. We have ADR @ GF Cafe @ 7:10 on our Anni. Night. Should we wait for boat parade & fireworks @ GF or walk to Poly's beach? Or what?


    The Electrical Water Pageant visits the Grand Floridian only about 15 minutes after it has passed the Polynesian, so I would just wait. Stay in the "Grand Floridian" theme since you will have been there, and save yourself the walk.

    After dinner I would explore the resort a bit. Then around 8:30 pm I would grab a beverage, or snack (or both!), and head to a good viewing area on the beach. Settle in, and watch the 9pm (typically) fireworks from the Magic Kingdom. Then at 9:15 you get that follow-up show from the water! Kind of a bonus for your very special evening!

    Send more questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
