I just got back from an amazing trip to Walt Disney World with my family. We go so often it is sometimes hard to find something different to do or something to surprise my boys with. This trip I decided to book the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage. If you have not done this yet, it is a MUST for your next trip to Disney World.
The voyage starts at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. After you check-in and receive your really cool pirate bandana you meet your pirate guide, Patch. He will welcome you into a room where snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are served. There are cookies, cupcakes, chips and dip and my favorite – Mickey bars! You will also have the opportunity to meet Captain Hook and Mr. Smee!
When it is time to set sail, Patch will choose someone to carry the ship flag. We were on Hook’s ship and my son had the honor or carrying the flag. He led us to the dock behind the Contemporary where we all boarded the ship.
On our cruise out to the lagoon we had a jolly good time! Patch told us jokes, we sang pirate songs and there was trivia with prizes. Once we arrived at the perfect spot, the ship dropped anchor and we had the most breathtaking view of the Happily Every After Fireworks. There is just something about seeing Cinderella’s Castle, the monorail and the Main Street Train Station as you watch the fireworks! The music was piped through the boat’s speakers. It was perfect!
On the way back to dock we had an up-close view of the Electrical Water Pageant. I have seen this a million times, but it was so cool to see that close! You could hear the music perfectly!
I was sad that the voyage had ended! When you get back to dock there is a special surprise guest – Peter Pan! He was awaiting us with Tinkerbell. (Yes, there is a photo op!)
