    Help! We will be in WDW this Saturday and we are wanting to watch Wishes Saturday Night without going in MK. Where is the best place to see them? We are also wanting to watch the water parade that night, any ideas on when and where to watch it?

    Hi Tiffany,

    This Saturday, Wishes is scheduled for 10:00pm. A great place to view the fireworks is from the beach at the Polynesian Resort. When you get to the resort, ask them to point you towards the beach. It is so beautiful and relaxing there. 

    The Electrical Water Pageant passes by the Polynesian Resort at approximately 9:00 pm. You could plan to be there by 8:30 or so, and take a leisurely stroll to the beach in time to watch it at 9:00pm. Then, you can relax in a hammock on the beach or walk around and explore the beautiful grounds until Wishes begins.

    Just so you know, the Electrical Water Pageant heads to the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa next at approximately 9:15 pm and then the Wilderness Lodge is at about 9:35 pm. It makes it's way to the The Fort Wilderness Campground at approximately 9:50 pm and the Contemporary Resort at around 10:10 pm. It ends it's cycle in front of the Magic Kingdom briefly.

    Have a wonderful evening at Disney,
