Absolutely! It's all about everyone helping everyone else--it's how we all learn. It's just hard to say in a clear way (at least for me) that is what time you do the booking, not what time you are booked for. I think that is how the information gets misconstrued.

When we were there in May, they replenished and replenished and replenished. When they ran out of one kind of dessert, they added new types of desserts. This went on and on throughout the party. When we were there earlier this week, they replenished a little, but not a lot. They only added as they went on two different desserts than what was there originally. Both parties were fairly booked. I do wonder if they expected crowd level made a difference (from a staffing perspective on what Disney can manage to do) or if the rain on our party this October had an effect.

Two different parties, two different experiences.

I thought i would create a thread that would keep track of who will be going to the Dessert Party. Disboard meets and soforth could be created from this thread

This thread can be found Here

Please post the Day of the party your attending, and the number of people in your party. If you choose to mention the time you made the reservation, and the reservation time, you could do that too .

If you have any other suggestions to make this thread more useful, please mention that too.
There are 2 other threads for the dessert party that are used frequently as well, that can be found on my signature. The first thread is informational concerning the party itself, and the second thread is the ADR watch (this thread you're on now), as to when the party is open for taking reservations; as well as additional information.

Thanks!
Mark aka Hunclemarco

We are eating our main meal at Liberty Tree Tavern with a 2:45pm lunch. It is late enough to hold us over until 9. If my son gets hungry we will just stop at Caseys and get a hotdog for me.

It poured during the Christmas party we attended last year!

Good luck to everyone trying to get December dates!
Just curious. Since you have to pay for both the party and the dessert party, will you just enter at 4pm so you don't have to use another day's ticket?

I would have loved to do that, but it would have been too expensive for me.

I am thinking maybe I should have picked 12/24 as that is my husband's birthday. We are eating at 4:00pm at Fulton's Crab House and we have a rental car so that might be a better idea! Ahhh I always rethink my reservations! Now I have to call back lol!
Here is my opinion, I know you didn't ask, but it works for my family. Keep your DH's birthday separate the day before. The party on Christmas day is really exciting. We did it last year. It's like more icing on the cake. We eat a a late lunch (either The Plaza or Liberty Tree Tavern) around 2:45ish. This is for 10pm fireworks, desserts starting at 9pm.

If you get hungry before hand, go light like a hot dog. We did a heavy meal and then the party and really missed out on the desserts.

Have a great holiday!

This is not true. I have been 5 or 6 times. They will replenish up to the last 15 and then they consolidate the desserts. Every time I walked away at the end of the night, there was at least some desserts still on the tables.

We got our booking for 9p on Dec. 15th. Since MSEP STARTS at 9p, how is it possible to watch the parade when that is the time they start allowing people into Tomorrowland Terrace? Someone mentioned earlier that it is not the best vantage point to watch the parade. Do we now have to sacrifice MSEP?

I see that the special Christmas parade (held on MVMCP) is 15 minutes before they allow people into TT, and the parade is repeated after the Holiday Wishes fireworks so at least we'll be able to see it.

The timing on the former just doesn't seem right.

You are correct the TT is not the ideal place to see the parade and yes if the parade starts at 9 and the Desert Party starts at 9 you are going to more than likely have to sacrifice the parade that night, that is if you want to go into the party right at 9. We are also booked for the 15th at 9:00pm.

That's what I thought. Oh well, it's not like we've never seen MSEP before and there will be other nights when we can see it. Looking forward to the XMAS parade even more.

My biggest dilemma is when to check out the Osborne lights (wanna do this twice) and seeing the fireworks at MK during our 10 day trip. Too many options...not healthy!

Oh, I bet it's because I only needed a party of 2! I did hear tricks of booking for 2 adults and one baby so you still only pay for 2 people. No biggie as we already have our party booked. I was just curious as to how crowded it was going to be and how close to the rail our table will be
