Yoo Hoo, Rachel!
That was Mike / Pirates of the Carib luvr who just came back from 7 nights at the Polynesian Resort and posted:
|That night we had reservations for a fireworks cruise. We did this as a surprise for my DD's birthday. The boat came from the WL and showed up at the Poly marina at 9:15. It was decorated with birthday ballond and banners. There was a cake and drinks also. My DD was very surprised and thought it was an awesome idea. The boat took us out on the lagoon over by WL and FW. At 9:55, he parked us right in front of the MK in preperation for the fireworks. For anyone who has never done it, it is an incredible feeling sitting in a boat on the lagoon at Disneyworld watching fireworks with your family. I just don't see how it can get better than that. It is something I will never forget especially since my DD was so captivated.|
For the fireworks cruise, we called the Poly and told them what we wanted and they connected us to the recreation and play people. We made that reservation about a month ahead of time but I don't think it needs to be that much of an advance notice.

|We have taken this cruise, in fact it was with the debut of Wishes! I "kidnapped" DH with the surprise and we loved it! You can request decorations to celebrate the birthday of your child (we had anniversary decorations) and can order up other extras (soda, champagne, cake, etc) if you so desire. We had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries, served by a CM (we had 2 - one to drive, one to serve). I chose to be picked up at the GF as we were at Narcoosees for dinner. We went out past the WL (slowly) and were in place to see Wishes about 5 minutes prior. I didn't find the smoke to be heavy at all and the music could be heard (although not loudly) from the boat. I found it to be very magical and special.|
I've just combined the thread about the Wishes cruise that you started, Rachel, with an existing one that was already here -- so scroll up and see more information about this cruise.
