Subscribing. We are going in June and still up in the air about if we are going to book this or not. It seems like a really high price for desserts... But we have never done it before. Is the view of the fireworks worth the cost? Im sure there are pics posted on here of the view and dessert tables but I just havnt found them yet ...

Not my review, just one linked in the thread.

My opinion:
First off I will admit I am a dessert fanatic, but I defiantly did not eat enough desserts to be worth what we paid to go. I feel you are paying for the view, the reserved seats and your sanity during fireworks more so than the desserts.

We have stood packed in like a herd of humans in the Hub to watch fireworks and it wasn't comfortable. We paid extra to have some breathing space, eat a snack and enjoy the fireworks from a lovely spot that has a limited number of people.

We look forward to going again this year! The dessert party was one of the highlights of our last trip.

We did it February 2011 and enjoyed it. Although we've been to WDW a dozen times, we hadn't seen Wishes (DD is an early rise). So this was a great way to see it. My daughter still talks about it, so I I guess it made an impression!

Just wanted to share some info about my experience booking this for February 14th...it will be our first trip to Disney ever and we are doing 4 parks in 4 days. It just so happens that February 14th is our Magic Kingdom day and I have been diligently tracking this thread and checking the Disney reservations daily. Until the Holidays...I kind of got lax about it especially when I read on here that it may be because of the renovations and that maybe there will be no Dessert Party in February.

Anyway, I checked this thread yesterday and immediately got on the computer to make a res for 5 people on Feb 14th. No luck. I tried 2 people. No luck. I called and was on hold when I tried 3 people. Ding, ding, ding!!! Whipped out the cc and made a res for 3. I am still on hold. I go back in and try to make a separate reservation for 2. No luck. I try 5 again. Nope. I try 3 again...and I get it.

So I can book 3 or I can book 6 but I can't book 5?!?! I hung up after being on hold and I will call back at some point and cancel one person on one of my ressies. Anyone else have such a hard time getting a certain number of people? I am out the money for now but I am sooo happy I got the ressies...it was the last thing I was waiting on to make our trip super Magical!

Can someone tell me what the exact prices are for "regular" season? All I can find is the scale, or old prices...

There really isn't a way to give you an exact price because it depends on the day. Since they only release a month at time no one knows for sure what March, April, etc will be since they are not for sale yet.

I am hoping too but haven't been able to book yet. I am trying to make it a surprise for my DH for his birthday. Hopefully it won't sell out by the time I get to call.

Aww! It's for DD's birthday too. If you see a tiny Princess Aurora wearing earmuffs (she loves fireworks but not the BOOM), that's us.

I thought the price differences were based on the different "seasons" like everything else? Everything I've read says something about "regular" and "peak" pricing. I guess for now I'll just assume it's $25.99 and $13.99, if it's the lower rate I will save a few bucks.

I don't think that is accurate. February isn't a "peak" season and the price is $23.99 for the day I am going Feb 3rd and I have never seen it $13.99. Plus who knows when they will up the price since they only release a month at a time.

I think the $13.99 was a reference to kids price.
