You and your family have spent the entire day at the parks, but you are not quite ready to go back and rest in your resort. What are you going to do? I have a suggestion you won’t want to miss out on!
Hey y’all! I am back bringing you another great Money Saving Tip of the Week! Today we have a FREE activity for your family to do while visiting WDW.
We’ve all been there: you’ve spent a ton of money coming on vacation, but somehow you end up bored. Maybe it’s off-season and the parks closed early. Maybe you decided not to use park tickets on your arrival day. Perhaps your family is bored because they think they’ve seen it all. Wouldn’t it be great to have a trick up your sleeve? Here’s something that will wow everyone, and it won’t cost you a dime…
The Electrical Water Pageant is one of those often-overlooked activities to enjoy while on vacation and it is totally FREE. Since its debut in 1971 this attraction has been viewed by guests and enjoyed by all.
The Electrical Water Pageant features floats with bright lights accompanied by music. Make sure to catch King Triton along with his friends and the Stars and Stripes. The music is plucked from a few of the Disney classics, “Pete’s Dragon”, “Peter Pan”, and “The Little Mermaid”. Of course, the American Flag floats are accompanied by “You’re a Grand Old Flag”, “Yankee Doodle”, and “America the Beautiful”.
So how can you see it?
This parade of floating lights kicks off at the the Polynesian Village at 9pm (view it from the beach), heads to the Grand Floridian at 9:15pm (see it on the beach or from Narcoosees), appears at Wilderness Lodge at 9:30pm (catch it near the dock), then Fort Wilderness at 9:45pm (head to the marina!), at concludes at 10:10pm – see from the beach Disney’s Contemporary – that’s your best bet to watch it if you are watching the Happily Ever After fireworks at the Magic Kingdom at 9pm!
If you’re visiting Magic Kingdom on a extra Magic Hours night, you cat see it at 10:35pm at right outside of the security check between the boat launches and monorail station (extra magic hours nights only). The times can change slightly depending on the fireworks schedule so it’s best to check day of and plan accordingly. The show takes about 10 minutes is a definite must see.
So, the next time you are at WDW with nothing to do after a day in the parks, grab a couple of cool drinks and take in The Electrical Water Pageant as a perfect way to end your day. If you have had the chance to see this, tell us about it in the comments section or head over to our Facebook page.
