    Hello again Kirsten, Which would you pick and why, Pirates and Pals Cruise or Keys to the Kingdom Tour? If P&P what time should we book dinner for, likely House of Blues or Boatwrights? Thanks

    Hi Lisa!

    Thanks for writing in again! It's always fun to hear from you!

    I'd definitely choose the Keys to the Kingdom Tour if given the choice between the two. There's just something extra magical about going behind the scene or 'backstage' at Walt Disney World! 

    That being said, I've really, thoroughly enjoyed Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage each and every time I've done it, which is now 4 times. We've always been with our kids on the voyage, and often with other families as well ... however there have been plenty of adult parties on the voyage as well. It's just a fun time and such an amazingly cool perspective from which to view Wishes. If you can swing both, I say go for it! ... but if only one or the other can fit the schedule this trip, go for Keys to the Kingdom!

    I love to dine at Downtown Disney, so you've got me leaning towards House of Blues right away. Their Lobster Mac and Cheese is simply divine! Another personal favourite of mine at Downtown Disney is Paradiso 37, Taste of the Americas. I've dined there five times in the past 15 months and it's been equally fantastic each and every time. If dining prior to the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage, I'd recommend a reservation no later than 5:30pm. You'll then want to be headed for the bus depot by 7:00/7:15pm to head on up to Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    I hope this information is helpful to you!
    Please don't hesitate to write back any time Lisa!

    Wishing you a Magical day ...
