Electric Water Pageant and BLT

Post by cy1229 » Dec Mon 05, 2011 2:06 pm

Happy December!

Is the EWP visible from Bay Lake Tower? Or should we migrate toward the Contemporary? I'm really stretching my brain in directions :shock: to which it is not accustomed to try to remember the layout and the "parade route" of the EWP. :?

Thanks!

I believe you need to be at the Contemporary to see the EWP. We usually view it from the dock.

Thanks! I've never seen it before. :shock: I think it would be really cool to watch from the beach.

Can't you see some of it from the Poly beach? I've never watched it from there but I thought someone mentioned it before...

I'm sure you can but when I was there as a kid in 1980 we didn't go down to the beach to watch it. In fact, I have only seen pics of it. Now I'm looking forward to watching it, just so I can say I've seen it. :)

When I first saw this topic thread, I thought it was about getting a sandwich which watching the EWP... :wink: :lol:

I remember EWP only lighting up and playing the music when it was behind the contemporary's main building and there only.

you should be more than able to see if from the new towers... every night that it performs, it hits up both the seven seas lagoon and bay lake. cant forget about the guests staying at fort wilderness and the campgrounds ya know!!

I think it's best viewed from shore level. The floats aren't designed to be viewed from that far up. (my favorite is the octopus and the music that goes with it)

I wouldn't mind a BLT while watching the parade. But we'll be on the dining plan and probably too full and already straining the seams of our pants at that point. :)

I'm not used to acronyms - so when I'm reading reports and other comments, it always takes me awhile to figure out exactly what is being referenced with the acronyms / initials. :?

I have to stop and scratch my head sometimes too. I have taken to just writing out whatever I'm talking about since I get confused myself on acronyms :shock:

Don't worry, I cracked the BLT sandwich joke earlier in the thread too...
