If you are asking about DP blackout dates - I can tell you that Saturdays during Food and Wine Festival are blocked out in 2013. I assume it will be similar in 2014 (not sure when your wedding is).

We have now narrowed our DP down to an Illuminations DP. I have looked at Robo's maps and still need a little help with locations around the world showcase. Anyone know how to get of hold of Robo, and have him highlight the viewing areas around the world showcase? I'm going to try and personal message him tomorrow. Thanks to Robo in advance if he's able to help!

I have a couple of questions

Is it just Epcot dessert parties that are blacked out during the Food and Wine festival?

Are the dessert party menus the same for all locations?

Does anyone have any more info on Fantasmic or Contemporary Resort DPs?

Thank you!

Yes.

Pretty much. They give out Epcot's menus as a starting point, but you can completely customize any menu, so they don't really bother with separate menus for each park/resort anymore.

All the info for Fantasmic! is in this post: http://disneytravelbabble.com/blog/2...ywood-studios/

At the Contemporary, dessert party food and beverage minimums are $1,000 for the Porte-Cochére and $500 for the Courtyard/Patio; there are no venue rental fees or setup fees. Photos can be found HERE and HERE.

Thank you so much lurkyloo! We have chosen the Italy West location for our 25th wedding anniversary. What is the timeframe for earliest you can start the dessert party? I'm also one to hang out after RoE, I'm guessing maybe 30 minutes after the fireworks to hang out there? Or I guess what I'm asking is how long before and after do you have the area and the desserts and drinks?

In general the party lasts an hour (8:30-9:30 when IllumiNations is at 9:00), but you can extend it—usually people only add half an hour. If you want to extend the food service to more than an hour, you will pay a pro-rated per-person fee based on the price of the menu, but if you just want the time, that's free.

Question

Thank You in advance for any answers i'm new to the disboards and love reading about everyone's weddings we hope all our expectations come true at our wedding!

We're doing a dessert party in Morocco after our escape wedding and in our Disney contract it talks about having to rent a Disney charter bus to get people to the dessert party my guests will already be at the park that day since we're getting married at 12 they wanted to spend time at the park before the dessert party. If you have the dessert party in Epcot do you have to rent the carter bus? Has anyone had this in their contract?

DFTW can be funny about letting you walk to (or just meet up at) a dessert party location in Epcot. If you were in the UK or France they'd probably be OK, but they seem to think Italy, Morocco, etc. are too far to walk from the International Gateway with a guide (which is the alternative to a bus).

I'd explain to them that all of your guests will be in the park already (this is also important so you don't have to pay a viewing fee for those who have park admission already—you can get it reimbursed after the party) and it makes no sense to force them to leave the park to go to a resort to meet a bus to go to Morocco.

Does anyone know if DP's are blacked out during holiday weeks, such as Easter? I'm looking at April 2014, the day after Easter potentially for the DP but it may prove too difficult to have the wedding that week due to the holiday and crowd levels.
Thanks!

So far they have not announced a similar practice during other holidays. Food & Wine is different because it attracts hordes of tourists and locals to Epcot specifically, whereas the holiday crowds are distributed among all the theme parks.

Disney's event planning sent me three sample menus for Hollywood Studios and they look soooo yummy!
I asked if the price was the same for children and my event person told me we could work with the chef on a special kid's menu.
Has anyone done this for a dessert party?
Any idea on the price?
The three menus I was sent were $24, $25 and $26 per person.

Disney catered events, but I don't have the number with me. Have you checked Carrie's book? Or her website? Disney travel babble.
