    My family will be staying at the Polynesian. Is possible to get a boat ride out onto the lake to view the fire works from the Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Mark,


    You will love staying at Disney's Polynesian Resort.  It is truly a tropical paradise.  Make sure that you make an Advanced Dining Reservation at Ohana for dinner.  The meal is amazing and the Bread Pudding for dessert will change your life!  If you have a late dinner, you will be able to see and hear the Magic Kingdom fireworks show, Wishes.


    You can arrange for a Specialty Cruise, either to see the fireworks or to have an intimate dinner on the Seven Seas Lagoon that will depart from the Polynesian Resort.  Call 407-939-7529 for reservations.
    I also want you to know about the Pirates and Pals Firework Cruise that departs from the Contemporary Resort which is easy to get to via the Monorail.  We did this cruise this January, and it was so much fun!  You get to first have Meet and Greet with Mr. Smee and Captain Hook while eating cake, cookies, and drinks.  My kids loved the chocolate coins as well.  Then you get to board a boat and be entertained by your captain, Patch, with Disney Trivia and prizes for the kids.  Certain nights, you will get to view the Electrical Water Pageant as well.  You will have a wonderful view of Wishes from the boat!  Once the show is over, you will head back to the Contemporary Resort and get to meet a special guest for pictures!

    Please send me a follow up question if I can help you further, Mark.  Have a magical adventure on your vacation!
