    How early can you book a fireworks cruise? We are interested in an Illuminations cruise and I thought the booking window opened at 180 days? Thank you.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Valerie! 

    An IllumiNations Fireworks Cruise is a fantastic, unique experience to add to your magical vacation. I've had the opportunity to enjoy this special event myself and can tell you it is spectacular! 

    You'll set sail from Disney's Yacht Club Resort Marina and enjoy a leisurely "stroll" as your Captain pilots down the canal to Hollywood Studios before heading on to Epcot, as you then sail through the International Gateway and "dock" under the bridge that connects the United Kingdom Pavilion and the France Pavilion. Next, you'll watch the story of IllumiNations unfold like you've never seen it before, from the waters of World Showcase Lagoon. It really is a magical experience! 

    Bookings for your very own evening of magic, or for any of the chartered Fireworks Cruises, may be made up to 60 days in advance by calling (407) WDW-PLAY. Keep in mind full payment will be due at time of booking.

    Please let me know if you should have any additional questions regarding a Specialty Fireworks Cruise for either Happily Ever After, at Magic Kingdom, or IlliNations: Refections of Earth, at Epcot. Both are fantastic and I'll be more than happy to help you select the one that is right for your family. 

    Happy Sailing,
