It gave me a 5p option on my dates too, which are the last week in December. Seems like arriving at 5p for 10p fireworks is a bit of an overkill.

Confused

This has me mixed up. I want to do the desert party on a Christmas party night and I wanted to see the Christmas party fireworks. I didn't know there were 2 fireworks shows. What time should I book to see the later fireworks?

There aren't two fireworks on one night. There are the Holiday Wishes shown at the party and regular Wishes shown on non party nights. If you do the dessert party during the MVMCP, you will see Holiday Wishes.

FYI

Pay no attention to the various times listed when you input the date you want the system will show you what times are available for the date wanted

The first time is 1 hour prior to start of fireworks then in 10 or 15 min increments. First people booking usually are given 2 times to choose from and people booking later 1 time or none available

I think it's more of how many people in your party that determines where you sit. It was just me and DD and we were in the first row, third table from the entrance. All of the tables around us were two tops. When we checked in I just walked around to the two tops and found our name on the table card.

So my MIL put the kibosh on the dessert party for all 11 of us, because she thinks it's too expensive (I guess she was only paying if it was $15pp.) I'm thinking of giving it to MIL/FIL & BIL's family as a Christmas gift so we can all experience it together. My family went to it last time and loved it. Would you enjoy this as a gift? I'm thinking it will make my life easier not having to come up with ideas for all nine of them! Now just have to get the reservation for Dec 30th!!

Devil on left shoulder agrees with this and wants to wave from Tomorrowland Terrace while they are smashed with thousands of people, and angel on right shoulder wants to be nice and treat everyone! End result is I look like an angel, while making my MIL look mean Win-win!

I think you are already an angel for going to Disney with your MIL. One of us would not survive.

It's more like a hostage situation that has been going on since I was pregnant with my oldest. Basically I'm doing this so I can be free and plan my next trip my way. Our first trip was planned secretly, and had to erase our children's memories on the flight back so they didn't slip in front of the in-laws lol!
