    Hi Shannon! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    As October seems to be flying by, it must seem like your trip is right around the corner! I am betting that you are getting so excited. I love that you have already been preparing for your vacation by making dining reservations and by purchasing tickets to my absolute favorite party, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Also if you haven’t already, make sure to take advantage of reserving your FastPass+ times. This really helps to cut down on waiting at some of the more popular attractions!

    One of the things that my family really loves to do is the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage. You will leave from Disney’s Contemporary Resort where you will get to indulge in some delicious party foods! Captain Hook and Mr. Smee will be there to watch you walk the plank…or maybe just take some pictures! There will be Disney trivia, sea tunes, and even some Pirate stories. You will have an amazing view of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular and a great view of the Electrical Water Pageant (weather permitting.) This voyage has always been a time for my family to really just bask in some incredible entertainment and we have really amazing memories from this experience.

    I hope that you have a wonderful family vacation!
