Breathless boat out of service for maintenance

The Breathless II boat is currently out of service for maintenance. This will mean that the Breathless IllumiNations cruise and other Breathless excursions will not be available until the boat returns to service.

The “Breathless”, available from the Yacht and Beach Club resorts is a sleek mahogany Chris Craft speedboat which takes guests onto Cresent Lake during the day, and which provides an ideal way of seeing the Illuminations fireworks display in Epcot and the Disney MGM Studios fireworks displays at night.

The boat carries up to seven guests, plus a driver / pilot which is included in the cost. Since it has a fixed price per excursion it works out a little expensive for smaller parties, however at just over $20 per guest when full it provides an excellent way of viewing the various fireworks display.

Day-time excursions are priced per half hour, and work out around $80 per half hour. The evening Illuminations cruise takes 45 minutes, and costs $160 for the full cruise. Note in both cases this price is for the full cruise, and not per person.

The Breathless, and the float-boats can both be booked through 407-WDW-PLAY. (939-7529) with bookings being taken up to 90 days in advance. The Breathless in particular is almost always booked as soon as available, so if you plan to book the Breathless you need to be calling the WDW-PLAY number at 07:00 on the 90th day before you want it.

Bookings for the daytime cruises can be made with the Bayside Marina at the Yacht and Beach Club resorts on (407)-934-8000 up to 30 days in advance.

You can upgrade the floatboat for a celebration cruise for 1-6 people for $175+tax and for 7-12 people for $230+tax.

With the celebration cruise you can get a personlized cake, decorations and softdrinks or you can get just champaine with strawberries.
