We were checked in by a young man from New Zealand who looked exactly like a younger Seth MacFarlane. After check-in, we made our way up to the room to crash for a little bit.

|The Electrical Water Pageant runs nightly. After finishing at one resort on Bay Lake, the barges are piloted over to the next and the show starts again.|
