    What is your policy regarding fireworks cruises that are cancelled due to weather? Reschedule, refund?

    Hi Henry! Welcome to planDisney.

    My family and I had the most magical time on our EPCOT Fireworks Cruise earlier this summer. Our Captain took us on a cruise from Disney's Yacht Club Resort marina over to Disney's Hollywood Studios and then to EPCOT by way of Disney's BoardWalk area. We even saw some of Magic Kingdom Park's fireworks during our sailing. It was an unforgettable evening! I am thrilled to hear you are thinking about adding this pixie dust to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    The night of our cruise was drizzly. At the time of booking, we were told that a Cast Member would check in with us on the day of the cruise if there was inclement weather in the forecast. We were nervous, but our cruise did sail. While it was sprinkling, our Captain had towels on hand and wiped down our seats and put down fresh towels as needed. There was also a covered seating area on the boat, although we preferred to sit at the front for the best fireworks view.

    I chatted with a Cast Member about the official policy. If you make a reservation for a Specialty Cruise, you will pay in full at the time of booking.  If you decide to cancel, you will need to provide 2 days notice in order to receive a refund. If you want to reschedule, that would be subject to availability and may not be possible. The cruises will sail in rainy and cold weather. While Disney fireworks are very rarely canceled, in the event Disney does cancel the fireworks for severe weather, they will also cancel the Specialty Cruise, and you will receive a refund. I recommend that you ask for confirmation of the cancellation policy when you call to book the experience; you may call (407) 939-7529 to speak with a Cast Member about Specialty Cruises and to make a reservation.
