    We are debating whether or not to take the pirate cruise. Is this cruise worth the money? Also, Can we view the Celebrate the Magic show prior to the fireworks from the boat? TIA

    Hi, Jennifer! My family (but especially my son) loved the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage! It is so much more than just a cruise to watch the fireworks, and I believe it to be well worth every cent! If you arrive early, they usually have coloring activities and small, indoor games for the kids, and then you will be there for every minute of the fun pre-boarding party.  It has lots of terrific snacks and drinks in addition to great character photo opportunities.  Once on board, Guests enjoy singing, jokes, and Disney trivia games.  Several prizes are awarded! Weather permitting, you will have a front-row seat for the Electrical Water Pageant.  While this is one of my favorite views of the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular fireworks, I actually prefer to be closer for the Celebrate the Magic presentation. You can see it, but it isn't optimal in my opinion.  Don't let this hold you back, though. You can always catch a closer view of it at a different time if you choose.  I won't spoil the surprise that awaits you when you arrive back at the dock, but you should know that even though the cruise is over, there one more sprinkle of pixie dust! Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
