    Looking for an economical way to view Illuminations from the water. Is it possible to rent a boat from Yacht Club, where we are staying, and drive it in ourselves to watch? For example, I'd like to rent one of their Boston Whaler® Montauk's.

    Hello Wendy and thanks for bringing such a great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    Almost each and every trip to Walt Disney World Resort my family and I take a Motorised Boat Rental out onto the beautiful waterways of Disney, it's such a fun and yet relaxing activity for everyone to enjoy.
    In answer to your enquiry I don't believe that during the evening hours it would be possible to rent a Boston Whaler Montauk or any other style of watercraft as Disney Marina operating hours are seasonal and typically run from 11am until 5pm.  To enquire about current seasonal marina opening times during your visit please check first with Guest Relations
    To gain a magical from-the-water perspective of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth you may wish to consider a Fireworks Cruise around World Showcase aboard a Speciality Cruise. These fabulous Speciality Cruises come complete with your own vessels Captain to sail you safety around World Showcase Lagoon and includes a selection of non-alcoholic drinks and snacks for you to enjoy. 
    Although it may not provide a view from on the water the IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party is also a pretty awesome way to enjoy Epcot's spectacular pyrotechnics. 
    If I can help sprinkle any extra pixie dust onto your upcoming magical trip to Walt Disney World Resort please do pop back to ask me another question.
