Smile Boat Rentals - Wishes vs Illuminations - pro's & con's please help me choose

We have been to WDW many many times but never rented the pontoon or other boats to watch the Illuminations or Wishes Fireworks. Trying to decide which would be better to pick. Do not know all that much about them & I would love to hear pro's & con's from everyone and whether or not they would do it again & if it was worth the $$. There will be 5 of us, my husband & myself which will be married 25 yrs this year (woo-hoo) & 3 daughters ages, 23, 20 & 18. Help me decide the best cruise please.

Guests cannot rent boats after sundown.

But, (as you mentioned) they can schedule guided cruises with a Disney skipper.

Some prefer the "Wishes Cruise" near MK.

Others (including myself) favor the "IllumiNations Cruise" near Epcot.

Both cruises are not inexpensive.

Much more information HERE.


And, to the DISboards, lstumpo!

I don't mean to hijack the thread, but thanks for the link! I do have one question, if you don't mind... does the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage have the audio for Wishes playing? I noticed that only the premium wishes voyage does so I wanted to be sure. Thanks!

1- does the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage have the audio for Wishes playing?

2- I noticed that only the premium wishes voyage does so I wanted to be sure. Thanks!
1- Yes.

2- That info is outdated.
Within the last year, now ALL guest-arranged private Wishes cruises feature
the audio on the boat.

Thank you for clearing things up! . I definitely think we'll be doing one or the other this year.
