Set sail on the Seven Seas Lagoon with us today as we take a first look and review a brand new premium offering at Walt Disney World — Ferrytale Wishes, A Fireworks Dessert Cruise.
The special event is still undergoing testing as Disney works to get all of the bugs out before the event’s official debut on Monday, October 5.
I had the opportunity to experience the cruise for myself last week while I was at Walt Disney World for the kickoff of the 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival. Of course, I was anxious to check it out ahead of the opening. I know some of you have already booked the experience, so I’ve been excited to share with you a first look. Let’s head to the boat!
Ferrytale Wishes, A Fireworks Dessert Cruise
The Cruise departs from the Transportation and Ticket Center, so I was instructed to park in the Magic Kingdom parking lot.
I checked in at a location near the entrance to the Ferry Boats Dock. Don’t worry; Cast Members are there to help you find your way. As you approach the TTC, just head left as though you plan to board a ferry to Magic Kingdom, and you’ll be in the right place.
Boarding began at 7:45 PM, and we were scheduled to sail at 8:00 PM promptly. Sailing time will change, of course, as it depends on when Wishes will be scheduled each night. Be sure to pay attention to the information for your particular booking. [Read more…]
