    If you take an illuminations cruise are you required to have park admission? We are considering doing this on our arrival night but do not want to use one of the days on our ticket in order to see the fireworks that night. Thanks. Love the panel!!

    No, you do not need a park admission ticket to participate in an Illuminations cruise. The Illuminations cruises do not actually go into Epcot. During the cruise, you're watching the fireworks from the waterways outside the park. You can read more about booking a specialty cruise at WDW HERE.

    Enjoy your stay at Walt Disney World!
