Best location water pagaent parade
 
Where is the best place to see the water pagaent parade? Poly, Grand Floridian, Contemporary, or fort wilderness?

I watched it from the outside area at Califonia Grill, we were pretty far away but you could still see and hear pretty well. I've heard that the beach at Poly is the best place.

We've seen it from both the beach at the Poly and from the boat dock area at the GF, and both were great spots. I'm not positive, but it seemed closer to shore at the GF.

Fort Wilderness!
 
We love to watch the pageant from the beach at Ft Wilderness. The MK fireworks usually follow close behind, and they pump in the music to the speakers at the beach.

We watched it from the beach at the Wilderness Lodge and it was nice and close. And Loud.:goodvibes

Ok you Ft Wilderness peeps, how's the counter service there? Is there one?

I don't think there is a counter service there. They have a nice buffet at Trail's End. And a snack bar at the pool that is open for lunch.

Love the Roaring Forks! I went there for lunch on going home day last Nov because I love WL and we were staying at BLT. It is small but food it good and CM'S are friendly. There is seating both inside and out, similar to Polys QS.

The best place I saw it?! On a boat going from MK to WL! :thumbsup2 I've seen it all over, and they are all great views. Go where you feel most comfortable!

Any of the MK resorts will be fine. So go where it's easiest for you to get to. If you aren't staying in one of them, CR may be easier as you can walk from MK there.

I have to disagree slightly with most posters here. While it's true that each of the resorts do have viewing spots, many rooms at Poly and GF do not have a view of the water parade. You will have to go outside on the beach to see it if your room is not facing the correct direction. I haven't stayed in all resort rooms, but I think at GF or Poly you need to book a MKview room. There may be some lagoon view rooms that also have a view of it. I know there most certainly are rooms that do not see it.Also try looking on A satelite site like Google maps to see which resort have rooms that face the lagoon.

I'm not sure about Ft. Wilderness.

At CR, most tower rooms will have a view of the water parade. There are probably some 'wing' rooms that do not, but most of the tower rooms, and many wing rooms will be able to see it. The "Bay Lake View Tower" rooms at CR have an excellent view, especially if you are on one of the upper floors. Similarly, many rooms at BLT probably have a good view, but I have never stayed there, so I can't be certain.

At WL, we had view of the water parade form our room, but I could not tell you what percent do. My guess is that many do not have a good view.

We had a TPV room at the Poly last year and watched it from our beds :)

At what time is the pageant? We have chef mickey reservations at 8:05 so we might be able to catch it on our way out.
