This makes me happy since I was disappointed because there were no tables available. I'll have to keep checking for this.

It's there on the website.. Maybe view all and look for Tomorrowland Wishes Dessert Bar. When I get on the computer later, I'll see if I can post the link to it.

You should be able to do it through the website. Here is the link: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/di...dessert-party/.

Also, one thing I forgot to mention about this, you will have to pay for it up front.

Yes. Check back with the link I provided. I tried and doesn't look like May is open yet. I was able to get times for April, but no dates in May yet. Check everyday and often each day. Good luck.

There is a thread in the dining section just for Wishes dessert party reservation watching. Disney is very random with their timing on opening those reservations and the best thing is to follow that thread so you're not checking for ADRs every day, twice a day! I can't look for it now on my phone but it's there somewhere. Usually pretty current. (First or second page)

I had quite a few such as:
-if you are on the dinning plan use all the left over snack credits to take home as gifts for friends!
-Pack as less as possible on the way don't over pack as on the way back you will need a lot more space especially if you buy a lot of stuff (Like me!)
-Using my phone to check queue times so for instance if a ride that usually had a big queue is temporally unavailable I can check it every so often and get over there when it opens to avoid long queues
-If there is a firework display or a parade going on usually the queues are all pretty small so get on all the rides you usually can't go on and see the parade another day

Hope they helped but they are the tips I always seem to use!

That depends. There are lots of good spots. It depends on how long you want to sit (on the ground) or stand and wait. How long you are willing to walk to leave after they're over? Which gate you want to leave from? Are you just interested in the actual fireworks, or do you want a really good view of the full effect with the (slightly boring) lull with the story and the globe in the middle? Do you want to have a meal as part of your wait for a possibly good view?

(I like over by the Rose and Crown, or to the right of the accessible area close to the Int'l gateway walk).

I wondered why they changed this? DW and I went in December and I was able to book online.

At least you got through. Have fun.

hmm that is weird, I checked and you can book online. Not sure why she said that. I was having problems that night with reservations so had to call anyway. She apparently was wrong. Sorry for the confusion.

Nice view of it all and quick exit from the park afterwards
