As we set sail on Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon, our Captain pointed out some sights that you wouldn't normally see and gave us some history on the Magic Kingdom and area resorts. We anchored in front of the Magic Kingdom about ten minutes before the show and were able to watch the Electric Water Pageant as it passed just feet away from us. And then it was time for Wishes! From the moment it started, I felt as though it was a private viewing just for me and my guests. We had the best seats in the house for the fireworks along with the boat’s synchronized audio on board; it just couldn't get any better. While Wishes always brings a tear to my eye, that night it was even more special as I was able to sit and enjoy it with family and friends and toast to a great vacation.
Additional Info: Our group chose to be picked up at Fort Wilderness, since we were having dinner there beforehand. But, you can also arrange to be picked up at the Contemporary, Grand Floridian, Polynesian or Wilderness Lodge. The cost for the cruise is for the boat, not the number of guests. So, you will pay the same regardless of the number of people. Our 21-foot Pontoon held eight guests. But, Disney also offers a 25-foot pontoon that holds up to ten people. Disney provides snacks and soft drinks, but you are allowed to bring your own as well.
