A musical and visual treat, the Electrical Water Pageant has been entertaining Disney visitors since October 26, 1971. The nautical and American-themed barges travel around Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. If you're staying at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, get to the beach early to find a great seating spot. The parade typically comes by the resort around 9:45 p.m. (weather permitting). Stay for the Magic Kingdom fireworks afterwards - you'll have a great view right from the beach.

No Disney resort is complete without an exciting pool area - and Fort Wilderness is no exception. The pool has a rustic theme, and the large barrel near the slide is from the old River Country water park, which used to be part of Fort Wilderness. The pool is centrally located near the Meadows Trading Post. Taking a dip in the pool is a great way to cool off from park hopping!
