BREAKING: Electrical Water Pageant Returning to Walt Disney World

Disney has just announced that the Electrical Water Pageant will “soon” be returning to Walt Disney World! Check out 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 been unavailable since the reopening of the resort. Recently, however, guests have been able to catch glimpses of the pageant’s floats staged by 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 moving for the floats, with the opening “Fanfare” music from The Little Mermaid playing 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 been entertaining guests with whimsical sea creatures and classic Disney tunes ever since. The pageant usually begins its route at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort before moving on 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 entrance to Magic Kingdom.
