    We heard there is a boat you can board at beach club to view the EPCOT fireworks show. Can you give me any info on this?

    Hi Jim,

    The IllumiNations fireworks cruise is such fun. You board a pontoon at the Yacht and Beach Club marina for a ride to Hollywood Studios and then back into Epcot. The boat then sails through the International Gateway and docks under the bridge between the United Kingdom and France pavilions for a spectacular view of IllumiNations.

    Each boat holds up to 10 people. We've done this with a large group and had three boats anchored side-by-side for the fireworks so that we could all still be together, take pictures and have conversations. The cruise includes snacks, sodas and water. I believe the cruise is a flat rate, regardless of how many people are in your party, and it is possible to combine with other groups. Epcot admission is not required.

    For more information or to book a fireworks cruise, you can call 1-407-WDW-PLAY (407.939.7529).

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question, Jim. We're happy to share our experiences at Walt Disney World to help other guests plan their vacations. Please let us know if we can help in any other way.
