    Can you see the Electrical parade from a lake view room at Bay Lake Towers? Looking for other non-park entertainment as well to save spending money on the tickets if you have them. Visiting 5/24-5/29, w/the 1st night being a non-park day. 2adults&4&am

    Hi Teresa,

    Yes, you can view the Electrical Water Pageant from most lake view rooms at Bay Lake Tower.  Be sure to check at guest services to see what time you can expect the parade will be floating by.

    There are plenty of other fun things at Walt Disney World that cost very little or nothing at all.  We love to take the monorail over to the Polynesian at night so that we can watch the fireworks above Cinderella Castle from their beautiful beach.  Typically, we wander into Capt. Cook's a few minutes before the fireworks start to purchase one of our favorite treats, pineapple soft serve ice cream, and then take our dessert out to the beach just in time to catch the gorgeous pyrotechnic display.

    We also spend a day visiting other Disney resorts to see what is new and exciting in other parts of the World.  If you enjoy window-shopping, then you have to set aside some time to explore Downtown Disney!  They have so many adorable new stores there, plus some classics like the massive World of Disney store.  I could get lost in there for hours.

    Finally, consider spending the day lounging by the pool at your resort.  The pool slide at Bay Lake Tower looks like plenty of fun.  No extra charges here for a relaxing day!

    See, Teresa, there are plenty of things to do at Walt Disney World that won't require you to spend money on tickets!  Here's hoping you and your family have a magical time in May!
