Once upon a time, the Electrical Water Pageant was more than just floating screens of light set to synchronized music that toured the Seven Seas Lagoon. In fact, during the Bicentennial celebration, the nighttime spectacle introduced its longstanding patriotic finale and came complete with fireworks. More than that, however, it also featured an illuminated hot-air balloon that could also shower the scene with fireworks.
IllumiNations has always spoken to my feeling of global connectedness, Wishes my deep feelings of family, and the Main Street Electrical Parade will always be my favorite parade, and they all find a way to choke me up. All of that said Electrical Water Pageant is hands down my favorite nighttime activity past or present in Walt Disney World.
