    We are planning to reach Orlando around 6pm Aug 15th. We would like to get in a little magic without going into the park. I was hoping to do a campfire, water parade and fireworks all from the resorts. Just not sure how to plan where and times. Thanks!

    Hey Cheri!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you so much for your question. I can't think of a better way to begin your Walt Disney World vacation than a magical night on the shores of the Seven Seas Lagoon.

    Once you check in at your resort I suggest heading to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. The beach in front of the resort has a perfect view of the Electric Water Pageant and Wishes fireworks. Prior to heading to the beach you can grab a tasty treat from Capt. Cook's. This is a quick service restaurant located on the first floor of the Great Ceremonial Hall.

    You can also check with the front desk to see if they are showing a Movie Under The Stars. At the Polynesian a giant inflatable movie screen is erected near the pool. This is better than any movie theatre I have ever seen.

    I checked the hours for your arrival date and it appears the Electric Water Pageant will be floating by the Polynesian at approximately 9:00 p.m. and Wishes will take place at 10:00 p.m.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any other questions regarding adding a little magic or other aspects of your Disney vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a magical vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
