    Hello, I’m trying to plan May 18th Polynesian dinner reservation time to ensure we can view the electrical water parade. Start times listed on different Disney pages as 8:15, 8:45, 9pm or later if fireworks ? So confused and don’t want to miss it! Thanks

    Well, hey there, Teresa! Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for your question.

    It is so easy to get confused by times and schedules at Walt Disney World, so I'm here to tell you that we've probably all felt like you feel right now. With the Electrical Water Pageant, part of the confusion comes from the fact that the times posted are based on the resort the parade is passing. 

    The parade usually begins at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort at the earliest of the posted times. So on the day you are visiting, you are probably going to get the best view of the parade at this resort at the earliest time of 8:15 PM. Although you can see the pageant from a window-side table at 'Ohana, you'll get a better view outside of the resort. If you head towards the boat pier just near the Lava Pool, you'll get a pretty good view. 

    If you can hang out, the beach at this resort is the perfect spot to watch Disney Enchantment. The resort even makes sure you can hear the music from the show, and it's absolutely spectacular! Just get there early if you want a good seat - it's a popular spot.

    Have a practically perfect visit, Teresa!
