    If we take the Pirates and Pals Voyage from the Contemporary Resort, will we be able to return to Port Orleans after the fireworks show via Disney transportation? I'm wondering if timing could be an issue.

    Hi Bud!

    The Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage is a fabulous experience.  Everybody in my family absolutely loves doing it and my children want to do it on every trip to Walt Disney World.  The cruise ends pretty rapidly after Wishes ends.  You should have plenty of time to get from the Contemporary to the Magic Kingdom to catch a bus to Port Orleans.  Another option is to take Disney transportation from the Contemporary to Downtown Disney and then to catch a bus there to Port Orleans.  However, you really shouldn't have an issue going back to the Magic Kingdom.

    If it was me, I'm not sure what I would do.  I think it depends on whether I am visiting Walt Disney World during a low time of the year crowd-wise or not.  That's because a lot of guests leave the Magic Kingdom after Wishes and thus you could find a long line for the bus at the Magic Kingdom. However, going that way would be more direct than going to Downtown Disney first.  If I was visiting during a very crowded time of the year, I think I would just a take a taxi from the Contemporary back to Port Orleans.

    I hope this helps with your planning!  Please write back with more questions!
