IllumiNations Cruise Sept 10th!

My wife and I have a specialty cruise booked for IllumiNations on Monday September 10th. We didnt know that the price was for the whole boat (seats 10) and there was no 'per person' price. The cruise is $350 no matter how many people are on the cruise and there can be up to 10 people. We are really hoping that we can find a few more people to join us on the cruise and help lower the per person cost. If we arent able to find others to join us we'll probably end up cancelling, which isnt the worst thing in the world, but I would love to take my wife on this cruise for IllumiNations. Its her first trip to WDW, and our honeymoon. If you, or anybody you know, is going to be at EPCOT on the 10th and would be interested in joining it would be $35 per person.

Thanks!

What a generous offer.

I'm with a group of friends, and if you can wait a few days, I will check with them (there's 6 of us) to see if they want to do this, and to make sure that we don't already have something planned for that evening (I know we have a Luau at Poly, but I forgot on which night).

I can definitely wait a few days! Thank you for checking your plans. I think I have to cancel before 48 hours or else I would just walk around a little bit before the show starts and offer seats to people haha

If I didnt have a dinner reservation that night as well then I would move EPCOT day to one of my free days, and make EPCOT day my new free day. Because of dinner reservations my itinerary doesnt have much room for movement.

Update: We have confirmation from 5 out of 6 people to go on the cruise. The last one still hasn't reply, but I'm seeing him tomorrow for our monthly pin trading.

So at this point, I'd say it is a GO!

Some time later tomorrow or on Sunday, I'll contact you via PM to exchange e-mail and phone numbers and make the necessary arrangements.

But seriously , you will like it, as long as the wind is not blowing back at you. We have done the cruises numerous times and never had any issues. Do remember though, they are not promoted to be "fireworks" cruises, and if anything happens that the fireworks do not go off, or something malfunctions with the fireworks, you don't get a refund.
