Did anyone ever start a thread to see who was going on what night during September?

If no one did, I dont mind starting one?

Did the Sundays in Sept. get released yet? I've been trying to book a reservation for Sept. 2 - and have yet to see any availability. I can't imagine it is sold out since I've been checking almost daily. Does anyone know? Thanks.

Oh, no!!! I just read through all the posts and it looks like someone else booked our date right around July 4th. Honestly I've been checking, so I don't see how I could have missed the window, but it looks like it did.. All I can do is hope someone cancels.

But the best part was being told by the hostess that we could sit there for as long as we wanted, even after last call. We stayed to watch the electrical parade and Magic, Memories and You. I would absolutely recommend the dessert party.
Did you have good viewing for the Electrical parade and Magic, Memories and you from there? I would love to do this! Can you leave for a short time and come back in if you want to? Thanks!

I just checked and there is availability for that date. You need to make sure you don't leave the time at 7:00 pm. Instead, put in 9:00 pm and something should come up. Another problem could be the number of people. For very large groups, it's best to break them up into 2 smaller groups. Good luck! .

Ok very bizarre - I kept entering different times and # in party and it let me book for a party of 3 at 9:15??? I added an infant - no charge, which is allowable. I just dont get it since I have been checking for months for a party of 2 for "any" time. I guess you really need to add a time in there. Anyhow - thank you G'sMaman - I was starting to panick, since we love the wishes dessert party - since it's so nice to sit and watch the fireworks. I wonder if this means we will get a table for four in the back???

Hey - is this the place to go to find out when October 2012 dates open? Or do you have a separate thread for October?

Thanks! We have never done the wishes dessert party so we're super excited to try something new!

This is the place! Someone will post when they've made their reservation. I'm also waiting for October to open. I'll probably start checking online a couple of times a day in a couple more weeks.

You can see just the tops of the floats from the party, but can't see the parade well. I would not count the view from the party as "seeing" it, if the parade is important to you. We save it for another night.

We thought the view of Magic, Memories, and You was fine. However, that night was the only time we watched it, so I can't compare it to seeing it from right in front of the castle.

They give you wristbands to wear when you check in for the party, so you can leave for a bit, for instance to visit the restroom. I wouldn't go too long, though.

Speaking of the electrical parade, has anyone managed to see it from any location AND make it to the dessert party? Are they far from each other? (Newbie here...)

I mean, when it comes down to it the dessert with a decent place to see the fireworks is the most important part, but....

I haven't done it yet, but I have read (possibly in this thread) that you could do it if you watch the parade near the entrance to the party, and watching the parade near the entrance is possible but someone else will have to comment on if it is recommended, since I won't be attending my first party until November.
