    Hi all, I have the Pirate & Pals boat trip booked on Friday 16th October, currently it's showing the event as 6pm on MDE but I'm aware this is a MNSSHP night and the fireworks are scheduled for 10pm. When do I arrive at the Contemporary for the boat t

    Yo ho, Emma! I'm always looking to find new ways to experience the fireworks, and I'm so excited to be able to try the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage this December. 

    Since the experience first starts off with snacks and drinks at Disney's Contemporary Resort, you will want to arrive 1 hour and 15 minutes before the scheduled fireworks time that evening. If HalloWishes Fireworks starts at 10:00 p.m. that night, then 1 hour and 15 minutes before would have you arriving at 8:45 p.m. I always arrive ten minutes early to everything, so I would arrive at 8:35 p.m. This will give you plenty of time to enjoy some snacks before your pirate led cruise over Seven Seas Lagoon. You will also have the opportunity to meet Captain Hook and Mr. Smee. Be sure to call him a codfish for me! There is a surprise character meet and greet after the cruise, so be sure to keep your cameras charged and eat lots of chocolate gold doubloons to stay energized!

    If you need anything else please let us know. Have a magical Walt Disney World vacation!
