Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise Returns

Beginning Dec. 1, 2017, guests are invited to enjoy a unique dessert party featuring unforgettable views of the Magic Kingdom® Park fireworks as Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise returns to Walt Disney World® Resort. The event will begin one hour and 15 minutes prior to each evening’s fireworks at Magic Kingdom Park, meeting at the Transportation and Ticket Center Tour Garden.

Once guests board the iconic General Joe Potter ferryboat, they’ll set their sights on the horizon and celebrate their senses with decadent sweets and tasty specialty beverages for all ages, followed by one-of-a-kind views of the world-famous fireworks blooming over Magic Kingdom Park. On select nights that coincide with Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party during the month of December, the cruise will feature the beautiful holiday fireworks spectacular and special seasonal desserts such as holiday cookies and peppermint cheesecake, as well as hot cocoa with a variety of toppings.

In addition to desserts and drinks, this event also offers fun activities such as a Glow-in-the-Dark Scavenger Hunt, where guests can search for Hidden Mickeys throughout the Ferryboat. And when the fireworks begin, they’ll receive a pair of “Mickey Vision” viewing lenses, through which they might just be able to see one of their favorite characters appear in each burst of light!

Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Party takes place on Fridays and Sundays through Jan. 28, 2018. Book by calling 407-WDW-DINE.
