December Sailings Announced for Walt Disney World’s Ferrytale Fireworks Cruises

One of Disney’s most sought-after dessert parties is making a welcome return just in time for the Holiday Season.  Disney’s Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Party will be running on select dates in the lead-in to Christmas.  The dates are December 1, 3, 8, 10 and 15.

This dessert party has always been a fan favorite offering unforgettable views of Magic Kingdom’s evening fireworks display from the iconic General Joe Potter ferryboat as it sails along Seven Seas Lagoon.  To add to the magic, guests booking the cruise as part of your December visit are in for a real treat as the cruises coincide with the dates for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.  This means the Dessert Party will be showcasing the Holiday Wishes Christmas-themed fireworks.

And did we mention the food? Chefs from the resorts around Seven Seas Lagoon prepare an amazing array of delightful goodies.  The menu will include seasonal specialities like holiday cookies and peppermint cheesecake, as well as hot cocoa with a variety of toppings.  Alcoholic and Non-Alcoholic specialty drinks are also on offer including our favorite the Ferrytale Punch.

In addition to the amazing views and delectable treats, the event will also include festive and fun activities like a Glow-in-the-Dark Scavenger Hunt, where you’ll search for Hidden Mickeys throughout the Ferryboat.  For a special holiday treat, guests will also receive a pair of “Mickey Vision” viewing lenses which will bring a holiday touch or two to the evening fireworks display.

The cost to attend Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise is $99 per adult and $69 for children (ages 3-9) which includes tax and gratuities.  A discount of 10% is also offered to Annual Passholders and DVC members.  Bookings should be made well in advance and can be made either via My Disney Experience or by calling 407.WDW.DINE.  The cruises depart from the Transportation and Ticket Center with boarding starting 75 minutes before the evening fireworks display.  The cruise lasts approximately 90 minutes.

Those hitting the parks in January are also in luck as the party will run on Fridays and Sundays throughout the month and will be showcasing the “Happily Ever After” Fireworks display.
