The Electrical Water Pageant from the balcony of a room at Disney's Contemporary Resort: I don’t know if it’s officially the oldest unchanged view at Walt Disney World, but it’s got to be up there.

The Water Pageant has a history that spans more than five decades–just a few weeks younger than the Contemporary itself. Fourteen floats, each 40 feet long and 25 feet tall and all in all covered in more than 50,000 lights, it’s been running its same route faithfully, night after night, since October 1971. And yet it’s easy for guests to miss Walt Disney World’s longest running parade if they don’t happen to be staying at a Magic Kingdom resort or leaving the Magic Kingdom at just the right time. 

I shot this from the balcony of our room at the Contemporary late one evening in June 2023. The Electrical Water Pageant usually makes its pass by the Contemporary a little after 10 o’clock at night. The kids were half asleep after a long day in the parks and I’d sat down in a chair on the room’s little balcony for just a few minutes to decompress to find the Pageant nearing the end of its nightly run. I thought about how many thousands of people before me had sat on this same balcony of this same room at Disney’s Contemporary Resort between 1971 and that moment, doing exactly what I was doing while their families rested inside, and happened upon this same view. Happily, I had my camera in my lap, so I used it to capture this–likely one of the oldest unchanged scenes in all of Walt Disney World.

And I offer it up to you today, because perhaps you've been there too. :)

  • Inspiration & Ownership

    While I’d like to think that Walt would have gotten a kick out of seeing these scenes and details transformed into their own sort of art, I have no ownership of any element of Walt Disney World or the Walt Disney Company and they do not directly endorse these images. The same goes for images from any location outside of Disney as well.
