Water Parks

Florida Guide > Magic Kingdom

The Electrical Water Pageant

The Electrical Water Pageant takes place most evenings around the Seven Seas Lagoon at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom and also Bay Lake. Most visitors to the parks will never see or have even heard of the water pageant, unless they are actually staying in one of the Disney hotels dotted around the lagoon.

But here is the best bit; you do not have to stay in a Disney hotel to share in the experience. Anyone can view the nightly parade by visiting any of the hotels at the allotted time and watching from the hotels’ beaches or boardwalks. You may even catch a glimpse as you whiz by on the monorail or sail past on the boat transportation whilst leaving or entering Magic Kingdom. But for the best views and to hear the accompanying whimsical music you need to be actually present.

We first became aware of the Electrical Water Pageant whilst taking the Keys to the Kingdom tour at Magic Kingdom. During the tour we were taken backstage and were able to view the barges, each carrying twenty-five foot tall screens covered in lights. They certainly did not look very spectacular during the daytime but we promised ourselves that before we went home we would make an effort to see them during the evening parade.

Generally the water pageant runs directly after the Magic Kingdom’s fireworks finish. But to save a wasted journey ask at Guest Relations or telephone one of the hotels to be given an exact time. Also, bad weather can cause them to be cancelled.

The water pageant is made up of fourteen barges. Each barge carries a screen of lights. More than fifty thousand light bulbs are used during the show, all joined together to form pictures.

Sea serpents, leaping dolphins, turtles, whales and seahorses are amongst the creatures from under the sea that you will encounter. The whole parade is set to music including “Under the Sea” from the Disney film “The Little Mermaid” and also the crocodile’s theme tune from “Peter Pan”.

The show concludes with an American salute with flags and stars set to a musical medley, which includes God Bless America, Yankee Doodle and You’re a Grand Old Flag.

It certainly is worth a visit, even if you only ever see it the once. Our favourite place to watch is from the beach at Disney’s Polynesian Resort. We grab a sun lounger, sit back and relax, then watch the fireworks “Wishes” followed by the Electrical Water Pageant. It’s a lovely way to end the day. We hope you enjoy it too!
