    Hi there! I am interested in renting a pontoon boat in Seven Seas Lagoon and wondered if there are any time restrictions - e.g. is it possible to rent in the evening at the same time as the Electric water pageant?

    Hi Haley! Welcome to planDisney!

    While Walt Disney World is known for its theme parks and amazing resort hotels, many other activities help make it such a magical place. The Motorized Boat Rentals that you can charter from several Disney Resorts hotels is a great way to see Walt Disney World in a whole new light. Getting a chance to get out on the water and relax during your stay is a great change of pace!

    To get out on Seven Seas Lagoon, you can typically rent a pontoon boat from either Disney's Contemporary Resort or Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. At this time, hours of operation are from 11 AM to 5 PM (hours are subject to change at any time). Unfortunately, you will not be able to rent it during the nighttime hours when the Electrical Water Pageant is taking place.

    With this said, there are plenty of ways to watch the pageant without heading out on the water. You can view it from any of the resorts nearby to the Magic Kingdom, including Disney's Wilderness Lodge. I recently stayed at the Grand Floridian Resort and had an amazing night taking in both the fireworks and water pageant. There is a great place outside of Gasparilla Island Grill to take in the nighttime spectacular happening at the Magic Kingdom where they pipe in the music over the speakers. After that was finished, I walked over to a beachy area of the resort and was able to watch the Electrical Water Pageant as it went by on the water. It was a truly magical evening!

    Haley, I hope this information helps you plan for your stay! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
