Back in June, Disney announced its iconic Electrical Water Pageant would not be returning for the time being, but today marks a magical day for Disney World Guests as the resort officially brought back the fan-favorite attraction!
Guests have been anxiously waiting for Disney to bring back this water show attraction as it has been spotted being tested for quite some time now, including having the barges out on the lake in November and even having the barges lit up and working on the sound system just a few days ago.
And now, Guests can once again see this beautiful show light up the Seven Seas Lagoon as Disney officially brought back the Electrical Water Pageant! Check out some of the reactions from its first night back on the lake:
I can hear the toot-tooooot of the WDW Resort launches tonight so I *think* I should be able to hear the Electrical Water Pageant from my back porch soon ????

More on The Electrical Water Pageant
In case you aren’t familiar, the Electrical Water Pageant is a floating nighttime parade that takes place on Seven Seas Lagoon in the Magic Kingdom area. It showcases several different sea creatures as they light up the lagoon, all synchronized to some familiar songs. Disney describes this water attraction as:
Whimsical sea creatures sail across Seven Seas Lagoon to classic Disney tunes during this floating nighttime parade.
A bright green sea monster leads an enchanting, twinkling musical pageant you can see and hear from locations along the shore.
The procession includes a stirring and inspirational medley of patriotic songs while stars and stripes float along the shimmering water.
