    Hi Doug thanks for the info. I was wondering what time the water pageant goes by the Polynesian in Oct & what time you would suggest dinner @ Ohana's in order to see the pageant, 5 of us 3 children. Is wishes before or after the Pageant. Thanks again.


    Thanks for being a repeat "customer"!

    Typically you will find that the Electrical Water Pageant will pass by the Polynesian around 9pm. As it happens, Wishes will probably be around the same time. Official times are not yet posted, so make sure you check for sure.I know that sounds like too much all at once, but you will find it all works out to be a magical view, whether you are still in the restaurant or on the resort beach.

    I would suggest you go for a 7:30 pm dinner reservation, so that you can finish up and get to the beach in time to take it all in. You might even consider 7:00 pm for the reservation, knowing that this is a VERY popular restaurant, and wait times, even with a reservation, can be a bit longer than average. 

    If you end up with more time on your hands, that is OK. This is one of the best Walt Disney World resorts for exploration, so the extra time would be great for enjoying the warm ambiance of the lobby area, maybe grab a Dole Whip at Captain Cooks, or just walk the grounds. It is one of the few resorts where I truly feel like I have been transported to another part of the globe. MAGICAL!

    Keep those questions coming, and let me know whey you will be at Walt Disney World. We will be there in October too, and maybe we will run into each other!

    Have a magical vacation!
