IllumiNations Cruises

Pontoon Boat

Want to see Epcot's IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth spectacular in style? Consider renting a Pontoon Boat from the Yacht and Beach Club Marina or the Boardwalk Marina!


Pontoon Boats -- One option for an IllumiNations cruise is to rent a pontoon boat. The boat will accommodate a maximum of 10 guests. The pontoon has a canopy, and has some drink holders. When you rent a pontoon it belongs to your party for the show; meaning the only people there will be the ones you've invited! The price for a pontoon IllumiNations Cruise starts at $346.13, for a maximum of 10 people. Cost includes a driver. Food and beverage items are available through Yacht Club Private Dining at 407-934-3160. You may not bring your own food or beverages on board.

RESERVATIONS for all cruises are made by calling 407-WDW-PLAY, between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m., up to 180 days in advance. You must provide a credit card to hold the reservation. You must cancel at least 24 hours in advance or your card will be charged.

NOTE: Be sure to call ahead for the reservation.

Deb's Mini-Review: Boats sit under the International Gateway bridge for viewing IllumiNations, but not right next to each other, so you feel like you're having a private viewing. You have a wonderful view of the water fountains, laser ball, and fireworks. From what I can remember, there is a partial view of France (behind you on the right) and the UK (on your left). There are also partial views of Mexico, Germany, Italy, China and the US. Canada and Japan are not visible.


A Birthday or Celebration Fireworks Cruise is also available, which includes a pontoon fully decorated along with the amenities listed above.

Cruise for 1.5 hours on the lake and enjoy VIP fireworks viewing.

Price: $346.13 for the 25' Pontoon (with Audio) (price admits up to 10) PLUS $25.00 for birthday decorations.

Hours: Departs 30 minutes prior to IllumiNations at Epcot or 30 minutes prior to Wishes at the Magic Kingdom.
