    Debating over an Illumination cruise or Wishes fireworks cruise. This would be Halloween weekend...wondering if the Halloween Wishes show is too much at castle level and can't see enough on the water??? Would love your thoughts. Thnx

    Hi, Kay!  I had to do a little research on this one, as I've never done the Wishes fireworks cruise during Hallowishes.  There is quite a difference of opinion on this one.

    Some people feel like you miss a lot of the Hallowishes fireworks display, which takes place during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, if you opt to view the spectacular show from the Wishes cruise.  The sense is that with the virtually 360 degree display commencing from around the castle, you lose a bit of the sensation from outside. 

    Because I've never done this one myself, I will say that if we were talking about Wishes on a regular evening, I'd probably choose Wishes over the Illuminations cruise, especially if you have children with you.  I just think Wishes is the ultimate way to end a theme park day at Walt Disney World.

    Have an absolutely magical moment filled vacation!
