    We are staying at POP in Sept and have ADR @8:20 for 1900 PF what are the not to be missed things to see at the Grand Floridian Resort. Will we have time to catch the Electric Water Parade? Love this Panel!

    Hi Pamela - the Grand Floridian (GF) is a beautiful resort.  Probably the number 1 must see at the GF is the beautiful lobby.  If you are able to get to the resort a little early, it's worth the relaxation time to just sit in the lobby and listen to the music.  There are also many shops you can browse inside the lobby as well.

    As far as the Electric Water Pageant - it starts at the Polynesian beginning at 9:00 p.m. (note: if Wishes is scheduled for 9:00, the pageant will wait for the completion of Wishes before it starts) and then heads over to the Grand Floridian at 9:15 p.m.  If you have finished your dinner by then, just head over to the marina to enjoy the show.  If you haven't finished, don't can catch up with the pageant along its route.  Here are the remaining times and locations (adjust times accordingly if Wishes was scheduled for 9:00):

    Wilderness Lodge -- 9:35 p.m.
    Fort Wilderness -- 9:45 p.m.
    Contemporary Resort -- 10:05 p.m.
    Magic Kingdom -- 10:20 p.m. (during extended Magic Kingdom park hours)

    If you are not able to see the pageant at the Grand Floridian, you're best bet would be to monorail over to the Contemporary and wait for it there.
