    How hard is it to book a private fireworks cruise leaving from the Polynesian resort??

    Aloha, Joseph!  

    Thanks for bringing your fun question our way – I adore these specialty cruises and am happy to help you understand what’s possible. How exciting that you have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation coming up in September! It’s a wonderful time to visit with warm weather but festive fall décor and just as spooky events are starting to brew across the theme parks and resorts.

    Specialty Fireworks Cruises are part of the Enchanting Extras Collection and must be reserved in addition to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation plans. These cruises are popular, so I advise you to call and book this experience right at 60 days in advance of your arrival. Reservations at each location are subject to watercraft and staffing availability, but if departing from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort isn’t available you can ask to reserve at one of the other marina locations. Here are the specifics for these magical evenings:

    • Boats can hold up to 10 Guests for a fixed rate of $399 plus tax (please note that prices are subject to change without notice)
    • Service includes a Captain, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages provided onboard
    • You may add balloons or a celebratory banner at no extra fee, just request when you book 
    • You may bring your own alcoholic beverages onboard
    • Depending on departure marina, enjoy a nighttime spectacular at either EPCOT or Magic Kingdom Park from the water view of your pontoon boat after a leisurely cruise

    I had a wonderfully fun evening on a specialty cruise leaving from Disney’s Yacht Club Resort last September with some girlfriends for a viewing of EPCOT’s nighttime spectacular. We loved the incredible views from this unique vantage point and the relaxing ride around with our knowledgeable Captain. Be sure to wear your MagicBand+ for an interactive surprise, no matter which location you are viewing from!  

    As with all things around the Walt Disney World Resort, these Enchanting Extras are not impossible to reserve but planning ahead does help. To reserve this cruise, be ready to call (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529 exactly 60 days before your planned arrival. If you are unable to secure a reservation, please keep trying as Guests do change plans and cancel often (especially as the event date approaches).  

    Please let us know how else we can help you make the most of this magical vacation, Joseph! Wishing you all the best in your quest for a fabulous cruise from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort.  

    Wishing you a magical fireworks voyage, wayfinder!
