    My family will be visiting Disney World in Jan 2018 and I'm wondering if the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage is running then or does it stop in the winter?

    Welcome back, Marianne!

    Yo-ho-ho! The Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage is such an awesome experience. I took the whole family last year and every sailor, from 3-63, had an incredible time. 

    While it may be postponed or canceled due to inclement weather, the cruise is available in January and does embark even if it's cold out. Just keep an eye on the weather and dress accordingly. 

    A few fun tips I picked up on during our experience last year:

    -Get to the check-in quite a bit early to participate in a fun scavenger hunt around Disney's Contemporary Resort.

    -When the doors open, get in line immediately for the Disney PhotoPass opportunity. This way you'll have your photos done and can spend the rest of the time enjoying the snacks instead of waiting in line. 

    -Wait in line at the end of the event for the special guest. The photo opportunity is worth it!

    I hope you enjoy the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage as much as my family of buccaneers did! If there is anything else we are able to assist you with, Marianne, please let us know.

    Magical Wishes,
