    Hi, Jennifer! Thanks for visiting us here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I'm so happy to hear that you really enjoyed the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party - it is an amazing experience! The Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage also offers a privileged view of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular fireworks show, but from the waters of the Seven Seas Lagoon! Pirates & Pals departs from the Contemporary Resort on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday evenings. The experience begins with a pirate-themed spread of snacks and beverages in the Resort along with a meet-and-greet with Captain Hook and Mr. Smee. Once onboard you'll be introduced to "Patch", your Pirate host, who will keep you entertained with songs, corny jokes and a Disney trivia contest as your boat navigates Bay Lake and drops anchor in the Seven Seas Lagoon. Most nights you'll have the chance to view the Electrical Water Pageant in addition to Wishes. And there is one final surprise character waiting to greet you as you come ashore. 

    Pirates & Pals is a really fun and entertaining interactive experience. I personally think the view of Wishes is unparalleled. It's a completely different perspective from the water where you can really get a sense of the full scope of the fireworks display silhouetted by the towers and spires of Cinderella Castle.

    Wishing you a swashbuckling good time, me matey! Feel free to write me back with any other questions as you plan your adventure.
