    What was the original name if the Electrical Water Pageant?

    Hello, Laura, and welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so glad you stopped by the Panel with this fun question. I love the Electrical Water Pageant and have been able to enjoy it on Bay Lake and the Seven Seas Lagoon from the shores of several Disney Resorts Collection hotels. No matter how many times I see it, the whimsical sea creatures and classic Disney tunes always bring a smile to my face.

    The history of Disney Parks and Resorts fascinates me. I enjoy learning all I can about Walt Disney and his "Florida Project" which would become Walt Disney World Resort. For your question, I turned to Disney A to Z on D23Electrical Water Pageant was first known as Electrical Pageant when it debuted on October 26, 1971. 

    "First known as Electrical Pageant, it consists of a string of floating structures, 1,000 feet long, covered with tiny lights that blink on and off to represent dragons and other creatures. With a synthesizer sound track, the pageant is pulled through the waterways each evening around 9 o'clock. This pageant was the forerunner of the Main Street Electrical Parade, which began at Disneyland in 1972."

    Please let me know if you have any other questions about the history of Walt Disney World Resort or planning a vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Have a magical day!
