    When will the Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise return? I was very excited for this, and my trip is coming up, but it still says 'check back later'. Will it be running at the end of February?

    Hi, Kelsey!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    If I had to choose my favorite Walt Disney World Resort activity, I think it would be watching all the breathtaking nighttime spectaculars.  There's nothing quite like taking in a performance of Happily Ever After inside Magic Kingdom Park where you have an amazing view of all the lighting effects on Cinderella Castle.  However, that being said, sometimes it's nice to escape the hustle and bustle of the theme park and experience the fireworks in a more relaxed setting.

    Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise is just one of the Enchanting Extras Collection experiences that offer Guests a unique way to watch a performance of Happily Ever After.  At this time, Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise is still listed as temporarily unavailable.  I have not heard any news as to when this experience will once again be offered, but you can certainly keep checking back to see if this event returns before your trip.  It's also a good idea to follow the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest Walt Disney World Resort news and announcements.  

    In the meantime, if you'd like to view the fireworks with a bit of extra pixie dust, I recommend booking one of the other Enchanting Extras Collection fireworks experiences.  There are dessert parties in Magic Kingdom Park that provide reserved viewing areas for Guests to watch the show.  There are also specialty cruises available where Guests can charter a private watercraft for a group of up to 10 people.  These cruises leave from the various marinas located at nearby resort hotels, and your captain will take you on a tour of Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake before stopping for you to enjoy an amazing view of the fireworks from the water outside of Magic Kingdom Park.

    I've done both a fireworks dessert party and a specialty cruise with my family, and I would highly recommend either of these experiences.  In addition to these options, booking a dining reservation for either California Grill at Disney's Contemporary Resort or Narcoossee's at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa would be a great choice if you'd like to enjoy a delicious meal with spectacular fireworks views.

    Kelsey, I hope that this information is helpful as you plan for your upcoming trip.  If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.  Wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
