We just did it on May 4th and we absolutely LOVED it. I booked within minutes of the window opening (got lucky I guess) and we had a table right up against the railing. No one even attempted to stand in front of us so our family got to sit and enjoy the fireworks. We were there well before they opened. We were able to go back up to the buffet 3 or 4 times. I dream of the mango shooters

I would do this again. The view isn't the greatest but Tinkerbell flies right over you (that was the first time we ever saw her fly so it was a big deal). The cost is a bit much but it's worth it for the yummy desserts and all you can drink

If you really want to see the parade in detail I wouldnt suggest seeing it from the terrace. You can see about the top half of them but thats about it and its a little bit away.

Thanks for posting the pictures, we plan to book as soon as the window opens, we will have a party of 10 so hopefully that won't be a disadvantage.

Great pics!! Thank you so much for posting!!

We were one of the VERY few people who had no idea that the Dessert Party was so highly sought after and just booked willy nilly. After reading this board it appears that it's a miracle that we even go a ressie. However, I am thinking that since I didn't book until March 29th for my June 17th ressie that we will be way in the back. Good to know that we can move up to the railing for a better view of the fireworks.

It's like a creamy mango puree with cream... kinda like the "creamsicle", but not frozen, with a white chocolate wafer on top. A large straw to slurp it up with

Thanks for the info. So if we have a table in the back is there plenty of room by the railing to stand without blocking others?

The area where i show behind the photopass photographer is the area my wife and i liked, didn't get in anyone's way that was seated... There may be other locations on the other side, but i'm not sure. As mentioned before, The Cast Members will tell everyone to stand at the railing to view the fireworks, so i guess in reality, it's fair warning to all... there is no bad spot to view them. Not trying to be bold about it, just stating "Disney Rules".

Edit to add: I was just looking at the pictures... For those tables that can see the fireworks seated, i imagine that even if some stood in front of them at the railing, that those seated will be able to see them fine. I'd love to hear feedback from those that may have had this situation.

Last October, we had a table at the front. When people got up and stood at the railing, it did block our view of the castle and we just ended up standing too. I don't think we would have been able to see (all of) the fireworks while sitting. It was not a big deal, tho - we were planning to stand up anyway
