    It says some of the dates for cruises for Pirates & pals firework voyage also include viewing of Electric water pageant but how can I find out which dates do? Can I book this at 180 days? Thanks

    Hi Helen!

    The Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage (P&P) begins 1 hour & 30 minutes prior to the fireworks. The website says 1 hour & 15 minutes but you'll need to arrive to check in 15 minutes before the festivities begin. If the fireworks are at 8:00 p.m., you should arrive at P&P at 6:30 p.m.

    Whether or not you get to see the Electrical  Water Pageant (EWP) during P&P depends on the time of the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom. The P&P link above has a calendar for you to check the time it begins. They typically start boarding for the actual cruise part of your voyage about 30 minutes prior to the fireworks.

    I spoke with a lovely Cast Member who gave me the current times for the EWP:
    • Polynesian Resort - 9 p.m. (If the fireworks are scheduled for 9 p.m., the EWP will be in position but will not start until the conclusion of the fireworks - this may delay the rest of the schedule by a few minutes)
    • Grand Floridian Resort - 9:15 p.m.
    • Wilderness Lodge - 9:35 p.m.
    • Fort Wilderness Resort - 9:45 p.m.
    • Contemporary Resort / Bay Lake Towers 10:10 p.m. (If the fireworks are scheduled for 10 p.m. the EWP will begin at the conclusion of the fireworks)
    • Magic Kingdom 10:25 p.m. (If the park is open after 10 p.m.)

    Please check with your resort Concierge or Guest Relations to confirm the schedule when you arrive.

    If the fireworks are at 8:00 p.m. on the night you sail, you'll miss the EWP from the boat. If P&P is over prior to the EWP reaching the Contemporary Resort, you can always stay & see it from the dock.

    Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance by calling 407-WDW-PLAY.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
