    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.

    My daughter and I are interested in taking this boat ride. How do you find someone to share it with?

    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?
