    Just booked Pirates and Pals Fireworks Cruise for 12/1. Can someone tell me more about what goes on? What happens in the Contemporary b/f the boat ride? How long are you on the boat? Could we see the EWP afterwards? Thanks! :)

    Hi Jennifer,

    P&Ps is amazing! You meet at the Contemporary Resort ~ 1 hr & 15 min prior to the time of the fireworks at MK & it lasts ~ 1 hr & 45 min. You receive a special P&P bandanna & enjoy some pirate grub & grog (grab & go snacks that may include brownies, cookies, chips, popcorn, granola bars, fruit & peanuts. Drinks include sodas, coffee, tea, hot chocolate & water).

    Hook & Smee arrive & you get a chance to meet & have pictures taken w/ them. Your pirate host Patch joins you & leads you down the escalators & out onto the docks. This causes a little attention as they blow a conch shell & sing along the way. You'll be given one last chance for a potty break b/f you set sail. Hook & Smee will escort you to your ship but do not sail w/ you. I think we were on the boat 30 - 45 min.

    As you sail to the Seven Seas Lagoon, Patch entertains you w/ Disney trivia, songs & pirate jokes. He'll also be sure to recognize anyone celebrating a BD, anniversary or other special occasion. The Electrical Water Pageant is held on select evenings & depending on when you sail, you may get a very upclose look at it.

    The view of the fireworks is incredible over Cinderella Castle & reflecting over the water. You can hear the soundtrack w/o the loud booms & crowds. Afterwards, Patch goes back into action w/ more songs & trivia & you can score some cool prizes. A special Guest awaits you when you arrive back at the dock (I won't give it away) which you'll have the opportunity to meet.

    P&P usually sails F - M year round but there are a few times of the yr when it sails 7 nights a wk. I HIGHLY recommend this experience for the whole family. To book a reservation call 407-WDW-PLAY. I'm out of room but come back if you have more ?s or need further details.
