It’s amazing to know that the electric water contest is thrilled to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. Today, Disney has shared that there will be new scenes in the classic nightly show featuring an imposing castle swirling pixie dust. The float, as you can see above, looks amazing. There will also be a version of the celebration anthem song, “The Magic is Calling.” This new addition will allow for a full traditional show as it navigates the Seven Seas Lagoon and Lake Bay every night.
For those who have never seen the electric water contest, it is an impressive electric light show that takes place aboard small barges. The show features awesome electronic music. The pageant features 25-foot-tall displays on barges that use Christmas lights to create an amazing display.
This popular nightly show has delighted guests since 1971. It embarks every evening and stops at several tourist hotels along the way. Guests can see the show at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, as well as on the outskirts of the Magic Kingdom.
It’s so great to see that this classic that has been around for 50 years is feeling a little love for the big celebration.
