So our last surprise for tonight was a pontoon boat trip out onto the Seven Seas Lagoon to watch the fireworks. It was AWESOME!!! Disney, in their infinite wisdom runs the 4th of July show on the 3rd and the 4th so we were out on the lake, just the five of us (well six when you include King Louie – our boat captain), and were inches away from being directly under the fireworks. The trip started out a little rainy so the girls and I were under ponchos while Anita and Sue were in the back of the boat under the cover. We tooled around the lake a bit and got to check out some of the other hotels on the property and then started back so we could stake out our spot for the show. Louie made sure we were positioned right in front of Cinderella’s castle in the prime spot for the show. Charlton Heston narrated the show and the fireworks were accompanied by some very traditional American songs with the big finish lighting up the sky to the finale of Sousa’s “Stars & Stripes Forever”. No kidding – the best fireworks show I ever saw. I also managed to get a few good shots so check out the show below.
