Poly beaches for Wishes?

We are going to dinner at the Poly at 8:00. Can we stay for the water parade and Wishes? I keep getting conflicting reports. Has anyone done it recently?

I’d be interested to know the answer to this as well as last I heard the beaches were still closed but that may have changed for all I know.

I have followed this closely as we will be at the Polynesian shortly. As of right now, the beaches are closed from dusk to morning EXCEPT for during Wishes. CMs are on the beach during Wishes, but people must leave directly after. I imagine the Water Parade is included in this but I’m not sure. This is how it has been for a couple of weeks now, at least.
