    I've never heard of this Wishes Boat Ride to see the fireworks...is that something for Grand Gatherings? or can a family of 5 do it? How would you book that? Any info would be appreciated.

    Here is a link that explains the cruises - the number is 407-WDW-PLAY.


    The cruises are great - we shared a boat with another family from the DIS in December for the Wishes Cruise that left from Grand Floridian. Our boat could have held 8 passengers.

    I'm just trying to get this right....Illuminations is for fireworks at Epcot and leaves from Boardwalk/yachtClub depending on boat.

    Wishes is for MK fireworks and leaves from Grand Floridian docks?

    They all run about the same price..when they say 8 people does that mean you count a 3 year old the same? Just wondering in case I wanted to try and find another family on the board.

    Are there any boats that fit 11 (6 Adults and 5 kids ages 8 and under)
    Thanks....

    wishes leaves from all the marina - Polyn, Cont, WL and GF.

    I think there is one that fits 12 - I see what I can find.

    I know it's late, but I just found out last Friday that my wife and I will be in Orlando March21-March24. If you have space for two on an Illumination Cruise for the 21, 23 or 24 please send me a PM.

    I see that they don't supply liquor, do you know if you can bring a bottle of wine or anything?
