I just double checked on AllEars. Turns out there is a Magic Kingdom Marina where the boat would depart from.

If so, then I'd consider an early dinner at the Wave. Alternatively, there is always something at MK.
That might be a good possibility. It would put us there and I wouldn't have to deal with waking Fran up to get going. But I want her to have enough nap time before the evening so she can stay awake. If we have to be there at 8PM then maybe a 6PM Wave reservation might be a good option.

I bet the boat leaves from the Contemporary.....

If it leaves at the Contemporary, then I'll lock in the Wave. Table for at least 5.


Maybe I can organise a birthday cake for DH on this night as well; so we can have that on the boat and not worry about dessert.

Is this Glenn's birthday, actually? We would be happy to dine at the Wave. That sounds great! We love birthday cake!

His birthday is the 3rd October. I think if I order one, it might be one from the GF. Might need to go find that cake thread....

I would join you at the Wave before the fireworks boat, if that's in the plan.

Happy Easter to all who celebrate it!

I think we have a few more days until the reservation window opens up, that sounds great!

Nice to be meeting you and your DH in 3D, Tiff. Glad you can make it.

Excellent!

And that makes 8 for the Wave.




With Ed, that makes it 9 in the pontoon. The cost of doing that will average to about$39 per person plus tips for the captain. Anyone have any idea what the tip should be?

We do have space for 1 more person in the pontoon, if needed. I'm thinking it could either be Bobbi's friend or, if Ruthie is free.....



It seems that the chef at the Contemporary makes a better cake than the ones at the Grand Floridian. Does anyone have any allergies?

I asked my friend to let me know by April 15th, but in any case, if there's a definite yes by another person, that would be the one to chose.

I have been involved with about 5 "Disboard fireworks cruises" that have been successful. Only once did the person who booked fail to show up. Since we didn't pay in advance, no money lost, but we all gathered at the dock and well, we made the best of it.

It seems to me that 15% would be acceptable as a tip. Any other suggestions?

Do we just bring money then? Or do you have to pay in advance?

I booked an Illuminations cruise 3 years ago and can't remember if they took payment in advance or not!

I expect cash on the day will be okay.
