Before there was a Disney Cruise Line there were cruises on the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. One cruise that was offered was the Moonlight Cruise, below are a couple of our tickets from 1977.
Yes that is $2.25 for an Adult and 75 cents for a child (age 3 – 11). The Moonlight Cruise was a one and a half hour cruise aboard a steam powered paddlewheeler on the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake. The cruise included live entertainment and cocktails. If you timed your cruise right the boat would stop in front of the Magic Kingdom so you could enjoy the fireworks from the boat.
Here is the ad from one of the 1972 Walt Disney World News
“CRUISE ON A LUXURY YACHT OR STEAMER… Moonlight Cruises on steampowered paddlewheelers leave from both resort-hotel marinas Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday evening. Departures: Polynesian 9 pm (Saturday 9:45 pm) and Contemporary 9:30 pm (Saturday 10:15 pm). One and a half hours of leisurely cruising, live entertainment, cocktails… Adults – $3, Children under 12 – $1.”
