    When we cruise on Pirates and Pals, will the boat be a replica pirate ship?


    Thanks for coming to see us at the Moms Panel!

    Although it would be lovely to be greeted by a real--or even fake--pirate ship for the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage, you will climb on board one of Disney's special water taxis for the evening. Even though the boat is covered, the high canopy allows everyone to see outside of the boat easily. Our family loved the open-air feel of the boat. Once you enter you'll be seated with your party together on benches. Music will be piped in and your host, Patch, will entertain you throughout the evening. If a private fireworks cruise is out of your budget, I think you'll find the Pirates & Pals voyage, especially with its dessert pre-party, a good value.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
