    Hi Moms, if we land at 5:25pm on the 6th of nov, is it realistic to be able to make it to Pirates and Pals at 8:45pm? Thanks for your info

    Greetings, Chris, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel we thank you for this question on the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage.

    This fun-filled voyage to view the spectacular fireworks show soaring over Cinderella Castle is an exciting way to sail around the Seven Seas Lagoon. Based on my personal experience with travel times to and from Orlando International Airport and city traffic flow, factoring in on-time airplane arrival, time to disembark the aircraft and checking into Disney's Magical Express, checking into your Disney Resort hotel and then travel considerations from your Disney Resort hotel to Disney's Contemporary Resort, I feel you might be cutting it really close. As well, this special event requires a ten-minute prior to event beginning check-in time, so I personally wouldn't plan for this voyage on my arrival day, but you may feel more adventurous!

    May I suggest an alternative to your first-evening plans, in that of visiting the new, re-designed Disney Springs offering incredible dining, shopping, and entertainment?

    As well, expedite your check-in on arrival day through Disney's Resort Online Check-In to allow you to get to your fun a lot faster, and full control and customization through My Disney Experience online and mobile app for Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ Planning, personalizing your MagicBands- which will be waiting for you at check-in on arrival day.

    Best Disney Wishes!
