We love seeing the magical Electrical Water Pageant at Disney World!
You don’t have to be staying at one the Disney World resorts to see it; we’ve seen it many times from the monorail as we were leaving the Magic Kingdom for the night and heading over to the parking lot.
Fun Fact: We had no idea that it dates back to 1971 and is one of the few original opening year shows to still be running at Walt Disney World.
The Electrical Water Pageant takes place every evening (weather permitting) on Walt Disney World’s Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake.
It features 14 floats with bright LED lights that depict various sea creatures all floating along to music. The floats are remote-controlled.
An Underwater World of Mystery
Charming sea creatures, both mythical and natural, light up the Seven Seas Lagoon, with a bright green sea monster leading the way!
Throughout this enchanting nighttime parade, you’re invited to delight to a variety of Disney tunes as the sea creatures are joined by flashing American flags—complete with twinkling stars! Don’t miss your chance to enjoy a stirring and inspirational medley of Disney tunes and patriotic songs with stars and stripes floating along the shimmering lagoon surface!

Lions and Tigers and Strollers, Oh My!
This is not Caroline’s first time in the Disney College Program. Along with her sister, she was previously accepted into the program a few years earlier. Back in Colorado, Caroline was wishing for a little more pixie dust to brighten up her life. On a whim, she decides to apply to the exclusive Disney Alumni Summer Program.
Now that she’s back, things get wild.
Wild, as in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, where Caroline is assigned to work in Stroller Rental. While not the most glamorous position in the park, it’s often ground zero for humanity at its best and at its worst.
While Caroline makes many “Magical Moments” for deserving guests whose pixie dust has gone temporarily sideways, she also receives magical moments of her own through the friendships she makes, going to Disney cast member exclusive events, and all the spectacular dining opportunities at Disney World.
Caroline tells all – from the ins and outs of Disney’s secret training class called Traditions; to learning how to be a happy cast member during on-the-job training; to what it’s like to interact with fellow cast members and the guests who are ready to explore the most magical place on earth.
Join Caroline as she takes you on a wild ride through her adventures in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. But be careful, it’s a jungle out there!
