    Hi Panel, I think you guys are GREAT !! Staying at the Pop Century in Aug, would like to make ADR for the 11th at TRAILS END & time it so we can catch the Electric Water Pagent. Suggestions on best way to get there from POP and time?


    Because Trail's End is at Pioneer Hall near the pier at Fort Wilderness, I think your easiest route from Pop Century is to take the bus to the Magic Kingdom and then hop on the boat at the pier near the park entrance to Fort Wilderness!  When you get off the boat, Pioneer Hall will be just beyond the beach to the right.

    The Electric Water Pageant sails anywhere from 9:00 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. so I'd call the front desk at Fort Wilderness sometime after you arrive for your vacation at: 407-824-2727 to confirm.  A 7:00 or 7:30 p.m. dinner reservation should give you enough time for dinner and heading to the beach for the pageant. 

    FYI: You might want to consider eating early, say around 6:00 or 6:30 and then heading over to Chip 'n' Dale's Campfire Sing-a-long near the Fort Wilderness Pool.  It's free and then afterward make your way back to the pier for the pageant....Wishes fireworks at Magic Kingdom are at 10:00 p.m. that night, and they pipe the music to the pier.  We love to sit at the tables on the beach and enjoy the show!

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
