My brother had booked this for our family to go on while we were there in early July. It was by far the most fun we have had altogether in a while. Our captain Jody was fun, informative, and really knowledgeable. She made the fireworks cruise that much more special! I would definitely do it again and am thinking about booking this for my sister’s 50th birthday.

Pros:

Our captain Jody was amazing, beautiful view of fireworks, and good snacks.

Cons:

None that I can think of

Did this cruise as a birthday present to my sister-in-law. She is restricted to a scooter.
the cruise was able to accommodate her. We had snacks and great funny stories from our captain. I don't think the cruise would have been quite as enjoyable without him. We went under a bridge where you enter world showcase and tied up. It was very cold, dress warm enough. It is colder out on the water and on land.
Watching the fireworks was great. The wind was not blowing toward us which could have been a problem. We had a great time.

Pros:

no crowds great firework viewing

Cons:

weather could be a problem

We had an amazing experience where we were sitting by the dock one evening after dinner, and the captain of one of the boats told us that the people who has reserved his cruise had cancelled. He offered it to us FOR FREE!! It was a great place to watch the fireworks and is especially nice when you don't have to pay for it.

Pros:

Great view, comfortable seating.

Cons:

Might be expensive if you had to pay.

Absolutely wonderful! We have taken these cruises a few times now and they never disappoint. So relaxing; no need to wait to save your spot around World Showcase. The vantage point is fabulous; we have never had a better view. The boats can fit up to 10 people comfortably. From ages 3 to 63 we all love it! Snacks and drinks are included and the guides are so knowledgeable and friendly. Highly recommend.

Pros:

Relaxing, great view, friendly staff.

Cons:

NONE

I would highly, highly recommend the pontoon boat cruise viewing for fireworks at EPCOT. It was totally relaxing, and a comfortable way to see those fireworks up close.
We were picked up at Yacht club., rode the boat around the lake and then went to the bridge between England and France. We tied up to other boats in the area, but even then, it seemed like they were very far away. We were offered snacks and drinks (non alcoholic) throughout the ride.
The driver was very kind, and talkative when we had questions... I would highly recommend it, but I don't want anyone else to know about it.
We did this as a birthday present for my Dad, and they had a sign on the boat for him. People on other boats, and along the shore were telling him happy birthday throughout the ride. It was really fun! Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Pros:

Relaxing way to cool off during fireworks, up close

Cons:

none

This is a pricey one, but we really enjoyed it. I thought the view from the boat was awesome. Our captain was funny and pleasant. It was raining a bit during the cruise, but still fun.

In all fairness we took this cruise as part of my 40th Bday celebration so six members in my party had a lot of cocktails that day however, despite the cheer and the good time everyone had trying this new adventure it still fell short of expectations. Illuminations is my favorite Disney production and I feel like there are many better options for viewing then under the bridge in France, I don't think it's much different then standing on the bridge in France. We had a new Captain so that may have played into it, since he didn't truly sell the cruise, but for the price tag I would suggest you try the parasailing at the Contemporary, which was well worth the cost.

Pros:

Cons:

What else could I do with $350
