Well, Disney managed to combine four of my favorite things today, dessert, boats, fireworks and dessert. Starting October 5, guests can begin enjoying Ferrytale Wishes: A Fireworks Dessert Cruise—the perfect way to take in a breathtaking view of the Magic Kingdom Park night time spectacular fireworks from an exclusive spot on Seven Seas Lagoon with dazzling desserts and drinks.
Cruises will depart the boat launch at the Transportation and Ticket Center aboard the double decker ferryboats used to shuttle guests from the parking lot to the Magic Kingdom one hour prior to the scheduled fireworks. While onboard, cruisers will be treated to a number of popular Disney World desserts such as “The Grand” key lime tart; pineapple upside down cake from the chefs at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort; spiced flourless chocolate cake from the pastry kitchen at Disney’s Contemporary Resort; “Main Street” Mickey Balloon Tarts; mini “fireworks” cupcakes with a pop; Cinderella’s Sugar Slipper with Orange Financier; no-sugar-added Florida mango panna cotta; and a fabulous fruit and cheese spread. A variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will also be available in souvenir glow glasses.
The highlight of the night, of course, will be a fantastic view of the Magic Kingdom fireworks from the Seven Seas Lagoon. Disney describes this cruise as very limited although there is no official word on exactly how many that means so it’s hard to predict how crowded the cruise may be. Prices are listed as $99 for adults and $69 for ages 3 to 9, including tax and gratuity. For reservations, visit DisneyWorld.com or call 407-WDW-DINE.
