    Can you tell me more about the specialty firework cruises? I don't see much info. on the website. Is there a place to see how much these cruises cost? Would you recommend the one that goes near MK or Epcot for fireworks? Are there snacks onboard?

    Ahoy Brook!

    Specialty Cruises at the Walt Disney World Resort are an amazing treat and perfect for any occasion! Some friends and I surprised another friend with a birthday Wishes cruise. Our cruise had sodas and assorted snacks such as chips, pretzels, and granola bars and was decorated with a banner and balloons. We also called Private Dining and ordered a cake to have onboard. Private Dining has an assorted menu you can order from for an extra charge. For more information and to call Private Dining at the Disney Resort where your boat launches, please check the Specialty Cruise page.

    Prices vary for Specialty Cruises depending on the size of the boat and the type of cruise. For pricing and reservations, please call (407) WDW-PLAY. As far as which cruise I would recommend, I think it depends on which nighttime show you enjoy the most. Many people have a favorite between Wishes nighttime spectacular and IllumiNations:Reflections of Earth. Or if you haven't seen either, which theme park do you enjoy more? I am a Team Wishes girl. It is my absolute favorite, and my family's never-miss show. We often see it several times during each vacation, and I am always reminded of the power of wishes and dreams.

    One of the best parts of the cruise for me was being surrounded by friends and family and have our own private showing. We laughed and danced while waiting for the show and then were left speechless by the beauty of the fireworks. These are the memories I hold dear.

    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to visit us again at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Have a magical vacation!
