Disney just announced that the Electrical Water Pageant is returning to Walt Disney World “soon”! Watch the official announcement in the video below, where cast members show you a behind-the-scenes look at the floats:
No exact time frame has been announced for the return of the classic Electrical Water Pageant, which has not been available since the resort’s reopening. Recently, however, guests have been able to glimpse the parade floats staged at the dock, and last night they were testing with both lights and music on:
In the video embedded above from Ben Wszalek, you can see the lights on and move in front of the floats, while the opening music of “Fanfare” from The Little Mermaid plays along.
The Electrical Water Pageant premiered on the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake for “Dedication Day” at Walt Disney World on October 25, 1971, and the floating nighttime parade has since been entertaining guests with whimsical sea creatures and classic Disney tunes. The parade usually begins its route at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort before continuing to Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, past Narcoossee’s, then Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, followed by Fort Wilderness, Disney’s Contemporary Resort and finally, outside the Magic Kingdom entrance.
