5. Take the boat ride from Epcot to Hollywood Studios
It has multiple stops at resorts along the way and allows you to take a moment to get away from the crowds to enjoy some time together on the water.

There is something about fireworks that are just magical. At the Polynesian Village Resort you get to add a beach and water, let the dreaminess take you away.
