    I wonder if this isnt the issue, that they are still using the normal fireworks cruise times...I have called a couple times regarding times of events on NYE and they dont really seem to know when the fireworks or other special events will be.

    Hi~~ i have been on the phone since 2:30 with at least 5 different reps. 1 said that the cruises for NYE aren't even loaded into the system yet. Another said that it's all sold out. Another said it's for the 9pm fireworks and another said it's for the 6pm fireworks UGH!!

    I can't get a clear answer, but i have a reservation for the 9pm fireworks:crazy2: but there are usually a 6pm and a 11:50pm that evening.

    There is another family of 3 that is interested and both of you. If it is for the 6pm would you still be interested?
    I wouldn't mind the 6pm as i have always wanted to do this cruise but i don't know what the right time is:confused3

    I will have to check out itinerary to see when we have dinner reservations. It would be great if the cast members could get the information together so we would know for sure haha. I will let you know but we may be interested.

    Yes we'll have to do the same, but i think this would be such a treat. So if the plans work out and if my ressie is for the 6pm that would mean we would have to meet at the Yacht club pier at 5 and the boat would return there by 6:30.

    Hope it works out

    My girlfriend and I are going to be at Disney World from Jan 24-30. We are hoping to split/join a pontoon for Illuminations with people if anyone has any spots! :)

    What I am reading here seems strange. We wanted a December 30th midnight MK fireworks cruise one year and we booked it in July! Although I must admit we got the run around like being told there were no midnight MK fireworks on the 30th for a few days.

    Three (two adults, one 14YO boy) looking for Wishes cruise on Dec. 30 (11:50 pm) or anything for NYE (Wishes or Illuminations) midnight fireworks on the 31st. Have a Tomorrowand Terrace reservation on the 30th for the 11:50 show, but would rather do the cruise!

    Hi Everyone,

    To those that have shown interest in the pontoon boat cruise for NYE in Epcot i'm afraid i might be cancelling the reservation. i can't get a straight answer for what i have booked. Some say it's a cruise around the lagoon and some say it's for the 6pm illuminations:confused3:confused3

    The 11:50pm is definitely booked up but the last CM i spoke with said that i have a reservation for the 6PM illuminations. I will check further because i am getting conflicting answers.

    I intend to call Disney on Monday to see if i can straightened this out.


    Liz:scratchin:confused:

    That is very frustrating, for a company that requires people to plan months in advance, you'd think they would have this stuff figured out.

    Hi Everyone, I have finally been able to confirm that we do indeed have an illuminations cruise booked but for the 6pm fireworks on NYE. I have another party of 3 that i am waiting to hear from so that would leave 4 open spots.

    The cost is $531.44 total with tax so we would just divide that then leave a tip as our own discretion. Meet at Yacht Club Marina at 5pm return at 6:30pm

    So just as to clarify this is not for the special fireworks that go off at midnight but the regular everyday fireworks.

    Liz

    Hi Everyone, I can't believe we're only 2 weeks away from our Christmas and New Years in Disneyparty:
    I have spots open on our Illuminations 6 pm cruise for Saturday December 31st NYE. This is not the midnight show but the regular Illuminations held during the week.

    I still have room left for our 6PM Illuminations cruise on NYE. You have to meet at the Yacht club at 5PM at the marina. This will be so much fun to kick off the New Year. If interested i have 7 spots open.

    I have booked an Illuminations cruise and have read that it is customary to tip your captain. I have no problem with doing this but I have no idea how much is expected. Has anyone who has done this cruise tipped their captain and if so how much did you tip? Thanks!
