    We have a private fireworks cruise scheduled for our upcoming October trip. My family, who are staying offsite, will be joining us for the private cruise, which is leaving from Yacht Club Resort. Will they be able to park at the resort?

    Hi Kelly, 

    Thanks for bringing such thoughtful trip-planning questions to planDisney. Enchanting Extras Collection experiences offer a variety of ways to "plus" an already magical vacation; they're a cherry on top of a magic sundae, so to speak. 

    I am giddy with excitement as I read you're planning a specialty cruise on your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I experienced my first fireworks cruise over Labor Day weekend, which quickly became one of my favorite Disney experiences ever. The combination of good friends, picturesque views along Crescent Lake, and front-row seats to Harmonious at EPCOT had the magic meter going off the charts. 

    Your family can and should park at Disney's Yacht Club Resort for this magical evening. When they arrive, tell them to let the Cast Member at the gate know they are here for a fireworks cruise. They should also be prepared to give the confirmation number. Guests are asked to arrive one hour and fifteen minutes before the fireworks start time, so a good goal is for them to arrive at Disney's Yacht Club ninety minutes before the fireworks. That will give them plenty of time to park, admire the lobby, and meet up with the rest of the family. 

    Since my fireworks cruise reservation did not automagically connect to My Disney Experience, we added it as a Note so everyone had access to the reservation information. To add your cruise, click "Add More Plans" on the My Plans page of your My Disney Experience account. "Notes" is at the bottom of the dropdown menu. You can add the date, time, and event name. I recommend adding the confirmation number as a detail. Scroll down and Share This Note with members of your Family and Friends, which puts the event on their plans, as well.

    We did have some hitchhiking bugs on our fireworks cruise last month, Kelly, so I recommend bringing bug spray in addition to any other specialty food and beverage items you desire. Oh, and if you happen to see Captain Todd, please tell him the "Dream Big, Sparkle More" cruisers  say, "Hi!"

    Plan magic; planDisney.
