Smile Looking

We'll be visiting Disney 10/17 - 10/25. Thought it might be nice to surprise my husband with an illuminations cruise. Anyone cruisng any of those nights that we might share? We'd be willing to split cost. We're in our 50's and will be celebrating our 6th anniversary on 10/19/09.

One Seat Available October 6

Hi. I am part of an Illuminations cruise share for October 6. We have one single seat left for any solo that is interested. The cost will be split among the participants. The boat holds 10 and costs $319.50 + tip.

If you would like to join us, send a PM to Disneyg1rl and let her know.

I took a one day cruise just far enough to be in international waters so folks could gamble. I hated it so as for me I don't think I would like to cruise. I am going to WDW for the second time this yr. in Oct. How much do these cruises run? I am guessing cheaper than staying for 8 days in the world. But I really don't know. Anyone gotta guess.

For the regular pontoon type boats the cost is around $300. The pontoons hold 10 people which makes the per person cost $30 plus tip. The cruise is just a few hours long and is either a Wishes or an Illuminations cruise.

Smile Picking a cruise...

What is the main difference with the Wishes or Illuminations cruises? Other than which show you are seeing.. lol..
I heard that the Wishes cruises pipe in the music from the show, is that true, and does Illuminations do the same?
Is there a difference in the boats used? If so, which is more romantic?
Can you bring your own picnic basket/wine?
Anything else I should know?

Illuminations June 19th

Planning on booking, fingers crossed, an Illuminations cruise for June 18th, 2010. There are only 2 of us, both adults, so if anyone would like to share and split cost, just let me know. The pontoon boats hold 10 people and cost around $300.

Thanks,
Amy
atriphan@hotmail.com or PM me.

Illuminations Cruise - May 14th

Hi,

We've reserved a cruise for Friday, May 14th and have 2 spaces left. We'd love to have some other folks join us. There is a couple who is celebrating their 8th anniversary; a mom and her 18 year old son celebrating his high school graduation, and four in my family- ages 58, 55, 22 and 21. We're just celebrating being at Disney

It's a fun group of people who have met here on DIS. Each year we find wonderful people on this board to join our cruises. If you're interested, please PM me!

Hope you can join us for the best fireworks cruise at Disney!

best,
