I am going on a solo trip in February and really want to book the dessert party. Playing with January dates I see I can book for 3 or more people but not one or two! I'm not sure if I should try this or not.

arrival time for wishes

I am attending the wishes desert party for the first time on Monday December 17th. My res time is 9:00 p.m. I called to see how early I could arrive but they said it starts at 9:00 so that is the earliest I could come. Both people I spoke to seemed confused about the time I could arrive. I think the fireworks are at 10:00 or 11:00 that night. Does anyone who has experience with this stuff know what time I can really arrive? ALSO, I noticed that someone said if the mickey christmas party (sorry i dont know the real name of this event) is going on then you have to have a ticket to that. Is this true? I paid for my wishes res but nothing was ever said about having a ticket to this christmas party thing also. I don't even know if it is going on that night. Can experienced disney person help me out here? thanks

Oy, that's a good question. I've never been during the holiday season so I don't know how parties work. Bumping so you get an answer.

Wow I had no idea this thread existed or that people were pouncing on this. I just booked my reservation for Jan. 9 for 2 people with no problem online.

Yeah - it looks like January is still pretty wide open. I know that, when we scheduled for October, there were days that booked up in a couple of hours after the reservations opened. The biggest benefit of reserving as soon as possible is that they assign tables based on how early you reserve. So the first person who reserves for an evening is assigned the best table. It was really nice to have the first table right up along the railing!

I know your date has passed, but for anyone else this might help, from everything I've heard, yes you would need a ticket to MVMCP if your dessert party is booked for the night of the party.
And the dessert party opens up 1 hour prior to the fireworks.

I wonder if February not being open yet has something to do with the fact that January (other than the 1st week) is WIDE OPEN! I just did a search of the January dates for 10-15 people, and they all seemed to be open after the 6th or 7th. I'm a little surprised given how fast October filled when I was looking this year and the fact that I couldn't get a space for 4 last December 2011 once I found out about it.

I'm so happy to find out that the Dessert Party doesn't follow the usual 180-days policy! I'm going in May and for the last few weeks I've been playing with the ADR site and was SO disappointed that the party seemed already sold out, even as far as June. I figured it was so popular that people were getting up at 6am on the 180-day window to book it and that I didn't stand a chance. When I happened to notice this thread and realized I still have as much chance as everyone else, I almost cried

I'll be going solo too, so I'm curious about what a PP asked. Is it likely to be an issue booking for 1 person?
