Happy Birthday, Electrical Water Pageant!
You’re getting quite a makeover to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary. Trailing behind the vintage water floats that we know and love, a new “World’s Most Magical Celebration” float joins the parade!
Electrical Water Pageant Gets an Anniversary Makeover
Announced this morning by the Disney Parks social media channels, we get news of a brand new Electrical Water Pageant float to be added to the theme park show this year! It will also feature part of the new 50th anniversary anthem, called “The Magic Is Calling”, capping off the full traditional nighttime musical processional (this float and music piece will not replace anything) as it takes to the water each night.

More on The Electrical Water Pageant
The Electrical Water Pageant returned to Walt Disney World’s Seven Seas Lagoon in late 2020, following the closure and reopening of the Resort. This vintage 1970s electrical delight is a favorite of Park fans and boasted as an attraction in its own right to be seen outside the theme park.
In case you haven’t seen this nighttime show, Disney’s Electrical Water Pageant is a floating parade that takes place on Seven Seas Lagoon in the Magic Kingdom area. You can see this show from all the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake Disney Resort Hotels (such as Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Disney’s Polynesian Village) as it showcases several sea creatures and a patriotic barge. Disney describes this water attraction on its website:
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.
Don’t miss this beloved nighttime entertainment delight!
