    Hi, do I need a park ticket to be able to book the Disney World speciality cruise to view the fireworks? Thanks!

    Hello there Yvette,

    Welcome to planDisney! For many Guests, Walt Disney World Resort is synonymous with fireworks. My heart soars when watching the incredible nighttime spectaculars light up the sky with moving music - the experience is breathtaking! 

    There are so many great vantage points where Guests can watch Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom Park and Luminous The Symphony of Us at EPCOT. On my most recent trip, my daughter and I rode Dumbo the Flying Elephant several times and had a fantastic view of the fireworks lighting up Cinderella Castle. On another evening, we sat on the beach at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and enjoyed Happily Ever After from the shores of Seven Seas Lagoon

    Yvette, great news, you do not need park tickets when booking a Fireworks cruise to watch either Luminous The Symphony of Us or Happily Ever After. Guests watching  Luminous The Symphony of Us will depart from Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts and the following marinas are the departure points for Happily Ever After: 

    • Contemporary Marina
    • Polynesian Marina
    • Grand Floridian Marina
    • Fort Wilderness Marina
    • Wilderness Lodge Marina

    Guests wishing to reserve a cruise can book by phoning (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529. The pontoon boats seat up to 10 Guests and include an assortment of snacks and soft drinks. 

    I hope this information is helpful to your vacation planning, Yvette. A fireworks cruise is a magical way to experience the nighttime spectaculars! If you have any other vacation planning questions, please swing by planDisney again, we are happy to help. 

    See ya real soon,
