    You can book 180 day advance by ringing the recreation number (found on Disney website) apparently there really hard to book and sell out quickly but I've always managed to book one,
    But I do ring at 11.59 (UK time) and 6.59 (Orlando Time) Disney do really have the best phone operator, they should come to UK and speak to our call centres!!
    Booked my second one today for the summer :) excited! Never done illuminations one but booked for wishes again, it's magical and you don't have monorail trouble!!

    We have an Illiminations Cruise booked for June 3rd. We would LOVE to share it. The boat holds ten and right now we have three/maybe 5 people.

    If anyone is interested in sharing an Illuminations Cruise on February 22, 23 or 24th, please let me know ASAP. We would also consider Wishes...

    We have 6 in our party so we are looking to hook up with a party of 4. :)

    I'm interested in sharing an Illuminations Cruise. We are 2 adults in our 30's. Our dates are Sunday Sept 29, 2013 and Monday Sept 30, 2013.

    If park tickets are not required I'd consider Saturday September 28, 2013 as well.

    Does anybody know if there is a discount on the Illuminations Cruises for Seasonal AP's?

    Also, are all the boats now equipped with on-board audio?

    TIA!

    I'm so happy I've found this thread! I've posted on two forums asking for info, and though I've gotten a good responce at one, I'm excited to find this.
    I was just wondering though - The info on the first post os very outdated (though I would be beyond thrilled if those were the current prices...). Is there another post with more up to date pricing and info?


    TIA!

    I don't know about the audio, but I do know there is no AP discount. :(

    So it looks like the original post that started this thread is closing in on 12 years old. Is the advice still valid? It's hard to believe that the menu system for reservations hasn't changed in over a decade. Can anyone who's booked a cruise more recently share the experience a bit?

    I just booked for mid-July trip and I secured ressie with CC. Charged once we arrive for cruise. There will be 4 of us on the boat, they include snacks, soft drinks/water, but you can call private dining for food. Total cost was $375ish

    Thanks very much for taking the time to reply, but I guess I was looking for more info about the process of actually making the reservation. That initial post has a lot of very specific directions and makes it seem like you need to know the phone tree by heart to have any hope of securing a reservation. Is that still the case? Is there even still a phone tree?

    Thanks.

    Sorry, I missed that part of your post.

    Call 407-wdw-play to make a reservation. Have your credit card handy. Press 1 for English if that's your native language, then 1 again at the next prompt. It's not called Illuminations Cruise, just a fireworks cruise. Also, the CM will tell you that fireworks are not guaranteed but that you'll be in the world showcase during Illuminations. Boat leaves at 8:30 from Yacht Club Marina but they ask that you arrive at 8:00pm.
