    Hello Gina, thank you for consulting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question.

    You are wise, Gina, to think about transport and dining times in advance, you’re a planner after my heart.

    In backtracking time considerations, Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage begin at 8:00 P.M. and Guests are requested to meet 10 minutes prior at Disney’s Contemporary Resort Lobby. Therefore, may I recommend you make Advanced Dining Reservations at Narcoossee’s between the hours of 4:30-5:15 P.M. so that you may enjoy your coastal cuisine with spectacular views of Seven Seas Lagoon in leisure.
    To reach Disney’s Contemporary Resort take a Motor Launch, at the dock beside Narcoossee’s. It will take you to Magic Kingdom Theme Park via Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. From there you can either walk (about 10 minutes brisk pace, or about 15 minutes leisurely) to Disney’s Contemporary Resort or take a second Motor Launch from the base of Magic Kingdom Park.

    The Monorail can be reached by walking across Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa grounds, through the main lobby, head upstairs and it will take you to Disney’s Contemporary Resort via Magic Kingdom Park. This is the most direct and convenient method in my opinion.

    Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage is popular with children of all ages. Save room for the special treats as you greet Captain Hook and Mr. Smee!

    Wishing you a fantastic experience, Gina, I guarantee you'll make unforgettable memories!
