I hope with all the changes to the Disney online site, that they also improve this process. It seems to me to be so strange that they can't plan more than 60 days (or less) out and open up the reservations, just like any other "dining experience". Anyone know (or have an educated guess) why they do it this way?
My guess (and it is just that, ONLY a guess) is that with the dessert party being in conjunction with fireworks, even though they have schedules 6months out, technically fireworks shows and times are tentative. It is probably a lot easier and predictable when they schedule it only a couple months out. More manageable so they don't have too many parties to cancel/ reschedule/ disappoint customers. Just my thoughts.

Can reservations be made online?

Disney has given me conflicting info the few times I've called or used the chat. We are visiting Disney the end of April into the first week of May. I'm glad to hear that I still have a slight chance of scoring reservations

Now can you book your reservation for the dessert party online or does it have to be by phone? Thanks!

Wow! I can't even begin to describe how it has declined. I'm only from my iPad but the availability has decreased and the variety went way with it. For the first time I walked away

What caused you to walk away? Was it the actual food, setup etc???

Question about payment

Does anyone know, if you have to cancel your dessert party reservation, if you get your pre-payment back? If so, is the cancellation window 24 or 48 hours?

Thank you for your help in advance!

TTFN,
Dawn

If I recall correctly you must cancel two days before the date of the party you book. If you booked a Friday party you would need to cancel on or before Wednesday to get a refund. If you cancel on Thursday or Friday you will not get a refund.

On the Disney site all it says is "Pre-payment is required. A cancellation policy applies and will result in charges if you cancel with insufficient notice. Specific policies related to this facility will be detailed at time of reservation booking."

I'm browsing for ADRs and just noticed that the dessert party has at least one opening for 4 on 2/2, in case anyone has been on the lookout!

I did not cancel a reservation but I did the reduce the number in my party the afternoon of the day we did this when a couple could not make it. I called and got a refund for the change. Took a little time on the phone but they did it with no hassles or questions.
