When I started looking through the Bill Cotter photos, I was just amazed at how many gems and awesome photos are included. The content and history is amazing and I almost don’t even know where to start! Well I think I have found a solid topic that I’d like more info on, and will be doing some more research like usual. The infamous WDW Water Ski Show. Some people may not know this even existed, but according to legend there was a choreographed ski show that took place on the lakes: Bay Lake & Seven Seas Lagoon. This was to entertain people at the different resorts and I’m sure it did. I do believe this is where we get those famous images of Goofy and other characters skiing behind a boat and hanging on for dear life. I have posted four Bill Cotter photos of what looks like setting up for the ski show, Pluto zipping by at night, Donald cheering on some other night skiers, and some super safe no life jacket skiing. I also found a quick clip on YouTube that looks perfect for our favorite era of Disney Entertainment.
My questions are simple, and maybe our readers can help with the search. What years did this run? Was it performed on both lakes? Why did it shut down? Finally, what in the world is with the night skiing? Did they perform a ski show in the middle of the night for some reason? That one really has me confused, but I hope you enjoy the photos. Post a comment or link below if you find some interesting facts,pictures, or even film of the infamous WDW Water Ski Show.
