Family With Medals

    Our family has been to Disney many times and are returning for a week in Feb. Our kids are 11, 13 and 15, and I'm looking for something different to do. Has anyone been on the pontoon boats for the fireworks in Epcot? Any other suggestions ?

    We've done the Illuminations Cruise a couple of times and enjoyed having our own private showing of Illuminations; it made us feel like VIPs.   We met  at the boat dock of the Yacht Club where the driver took us around the lake area for a pleasant ride before stopping to catch a glimpse of Fantasmics from Disney's Hollywood Studios.  From there we headed toward Epcot stopping just past the bridge that connects the United Kingdom to France.  The view was incredible and a real treat!  It is a treat I'd not hesitate to recommend, but I do know the reservations for the cruise can book up quickly so I'd call soon.

    As for some other suggestions, have you been to Cirque du Soleil?  or have you enjoyed any of the water sports from Sammy Duvall's, such as water skiing or parasailing?  Some other less costly options for something new are miniature golf and bike rentals.  If your children enjoy games, they probably enjoy all the offerings at DisneyQuest.
