    We will be going down in September to WDW and would like to view the fireworks at Epcot from a boat. We would also like to entertain some guests. Are their food packages offered for this "mini cruise" and how long is the trip?

    Hi there Sheena!

    In order to view Epcot's IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth from the water, you'll need to rent a pontoon boat. The price includes your own sea captain driver so you can relax and enjoy the ride while navigating the waterways after dark. The boat can accommodate a maximum of 10 guests and your experience will last approximately one hour long. When you rent a pontoon it belongs to your party for the show; meaning the only people there will be the ones you've invited!  Food and beverage items are available through Yacht Club Private Dining at 407-934-3160 and you may not bring your own food or beverages on board.

    Reservations for all specialty cruises can be made by calling 407-WDW-PLAY up to 180 days in advance of your sailing. You'll need a credit card to hold the reservation and you'll be required to cancel within a specific time frame to avoid penalty. This experience tends to be very popular so, be sure to book early!

    Thanks so much for visiting us here at the Walt Disney World Moms Panel and feel free to send more questions my way in the days leading up to your trip!
