Best place to watch the Hallowishes and Electrical Water Pageant
 
We are staying at the GF and have made a ADR at the Narcoossee's (7.55pm) on the 9/10, hoping that we can watch the electrical water pageant and hallowishes from the restaurant. That's if we are lucky enough to have a table by the window.

On second thought, would it be better to have an earlier dinner (say 6.30pm to 7pm) at Narcoossee's and then just watch the water pageant and hallowishes from the boat dock at GF?
Have not done this before so unsure how busy would the boat dock be?? Do people get there 30mins before the water pageant/hallowishes??

You can watch Hallowishes from your table, but if you're not at a window table you can go outside to the walkway that wraps around the restaurant. Many people will do this so it's quite likely that even with a window table there will be people standing in front of you obstructing your view.

The Electric Water Pageant is just before or right after Hallowishes so you can stay out there to enjoy it. Unlike the fireworks, the music for the Elec Water Pageant isn't piped into Narcoossee's so it's actually better outside.

The dock is just to the left of the restaurant. I haven't seen it very crowded, but I would just keep the dinner res and enjoy the view from Narcoossee's.

I thought the electric water pageant is usually at around 9pm and then followed by the Hallowishes which is at 9.30pm?

Beach at the Polynesian is a great place. We did this during our stay last October.:goodvibes

Any resort location where your near the water will have a pretty good view of the Electric Water Pageant. My favorite is Narcoossee's/Grand Floridian dock because you can see both relatively close to each other. Not to many folks go outside for the pageant, but those that do often stay out for the fireworks as well.

This is the view of the pageant from Narcoossee's:

We've seen both Wishes and Hallowishes from Narcoossee's several times so most likely I've gotten the order mixed up.
