I vividly remember going to Wilderness Lodge to watch the Electrical Water Pageant when I was just 13 years old. It was just as magical then as it was 20 years later when I returned with my own children. There was something so familiar about the music and it became something we very much looked forward to hearing and watching each evening from our hotel room.
The parade is visible from the four hotels on the Seven Seas Lagoon; The Contemporary, The Polynesian, Wilderness Lodge and The Grand Floridian.
Check out the Disney website for the best times and places to watch the Electrical Water Parade, but we thoroughly enjoyed watching from the beach area in The Grand Floridian and next to Narcoosses.
If you’re not staying in a Disney World Resort Hotel you can also watch from outside Magic Kingdom during extended hours.
Wilderness Lodge is positioned perfectly within Walt Disney World Florida for young families, the boat ride to Magic Kingdom is just 7 minutes and takes you right to the entrance and the bus transportation to other parks in exceptionally good as well.
Wilderness Lodge itself is just beautiful, the entrance way is magnificent and really captures the wild beauty of the Northwest, with huge wooden beams and rocking chairs.
The rooms are average size and fit the theme of the hotel, as well as being exceptionally clean as you’d expect from Disney.
There’s a fantastic pool with a slide as well as a quiet pool if you need a bit of peace for a while. the hotel sits on the shore of the Seven Seas Lagoon and there is a lovely beach area with playground. Each evening there is a movie under the stars as well as a campfire with marshmallows to toast.
