    Seven Seas Lagoon / Bay Lake
    Electrical Water Pageant

    This nightly "parade" was first performed on October 26, 1971 during the dedication of the Polynesian Luau. While old-fashioned by today's standards, it's still fun to head to the resort beachfronts to watch it go by. The water pageant can be seen from the boat-loading are at the Magic Kingdom, as well as all each resort around Bay Lake.  It normally starts at 9:00 each night, but check the Times Guide to be sure. There are two segments, one is a King Neptune theme, the other a salute to America.

    The Electrical Water Pageant usually follows this schedule:

    (You may want to check with the resort just in case the schedule changes or if it's canceled due to the weather that day.)
