    Hi, I had a following question :) so if i would rent the cruise to watch the fireworks that cost 346 dollars for ten people? Is there a number to get even more answers about specific details.

    Hi Ashton! The reservation number, 407-WDW-PLAY, is the number you would use to also ask questions about the Fireworks cruises but their answers will be pretty basic since many of the people you might get on the phone will not have experienced this opportunity. Let me try to give you more details since I am a seasoned cruiser for the Fireworks!

    The boats for both Wishes and Illuminations are pontoon boats that can fit up to ten people. They will come with a driver who will be happy to give you history details or just do the driving. The boats are equipped with chip type snacks and water and sodas. For special occasions I suggest you order cake, champagne, strawberries etc from private dining. For Illuminations Cruises you would order through the Yacht Club and they will deliver to the boat ahead of time. For the Wishes cruises you would order from the resort where you will be catching the boat.

    Illuminations cruises all leave from the Yacht Club resort marina. You take a nice ride down to Hollywood Studios before docking under the bridge in Epcot for a close and clear view of the show. If you prefer the Wishes cruise you can choose from any resort based on either Bay Lake or Seven Seas Lagoon: Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Contemporary, Wilderness Lodge, or Fort Wilderness. When you call to reserve you can choose according to availability for the date you wish and convenience for your party. Wishes cruises will tour the waters for about 30 minutes and then anchor in front of the Magic Kingdom. Boats are equipped with sound systems so you won't miss a thing.

    Cruises last about an hour to hour and a half and tipping is optional to your driver. You reserve with a credit card but pay at the time of cruise. There are Annual Pass and other discounts available. Hope I was able to answer some more of your questions.
