Specialty & Fireworks Cruises

Turn any occasion into a floating party! Take an evening Specialty Cruise around sparkling Disney waterways with brilliantly lit Theme Parks as your backdrop, then anchor just in time for one of the world famous Disney fireworks shows.

You can even turn a Specialty Cruise into a Celebration Cruise complete with cake and ice cream! Specialty cruises and Birthday Cruises accommodate a maximum of 12 persons.

Better still, climb aboard the Grand 1, a 45 foot Sea Ray Yacht, ready to cruise around Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake for your special occasion.

All cruises can be booked up to 90 days in advance, and very often get booked up very quickly.

Call 1-407-WDW-PLAY to book. All cancellations must be 24 hours in advance or your credit card will be charged.

Grand 1 Yacht

Grand 1, the most luxurious watercraft at Walt Disney World Resort, offers a pampered VIP boating experience on the waters of Seven Seas Lagoon just outside Magic Kingdom. A personal captain and deckhand launch the 45 foot Sea Ray yacht from the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

Morning and afternoon excursions on the Grand 1 offer guests a spectacular view of Magic Kingdom, Disney's Wedding Pavilion and several Walt Disney World resorts, including the rustic Wilderness Lodge and its faithful geyser that erupts in a shower of steam and water every hour.

For an elegant evening voyage, romantic music sets the mood as the sun sets over the gabled roofs of the Grand Floridian. And on select nights, guests can view "Wishes," a spectacular fireworks display above Magic Kingdom.

For the ultimate cruise, the Grand Floridian private dining staff can whip up a gourmet evening snack with fine wines. A private service butler also can cater to your every need; it is an experience not to be missed.

Dining service and private butler are available for additional fees.

Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage

Enjoy an array of snacks and cookies before this moonlit voyage around the Seven Seas Lagoon, which provides the perfect viewing location for the "Wishes" fireworks spectacular at the Magic Kingdom®, as well as the "Electrical Water Pageant".

Upon arrival, enjoy a reception with snacks and beverages. Before boarding, Captain Hook and his fumbling first-mate, Mr. Smee, will join everyone for a meet-and-greet on the pier before this exciting journey! Playing host on the vessel for the evening is an unforgettable comedic pirate named "Patch", who guides everyone through the unpredictable waters of the Seven Seas Lagoon, while leading sing-alongs and Disney trivia games. After the fireworks show has ended, the ship heads back to the pier while Patch narrates the exciting story of Peter Pan, who just happens to be awaiting on the boat's return, ready to pose for photos and sign autographs. Guests who are celebrating special occasions, such as family reunions, birthdays and anniversaries, will be recognized.
