Actually it's probably more like, heavily pregnant woman brings her chair to the rail since standing and pregnancy don't always go together well......someone sees her with a chair and insists that they too get the same privilege and despite 2nd lady NOT being pregnant throws a hissy fit because someone else got a perk that 2d lady didn't. Sadly, that is the way our society seems to run lately. I'm old enough to remember a time when heavily preggers would be standing at the rail looking uncomfortable and 2d lady would have brought her a chair.

I believe this scenario is right...

It was reported that they don't always (perhaps rarely) replenish the desserts. So, if folks DO show up at their ADR time, they run the risk of getting little or no desserts at the dessert party? Why would WDW tell someone to show up an hour past the start of the party? If we go in the future, at least we're armed with this information, but it just seems wrong that they would give you an ADR time that could be after the desserts have all been eaten! If they replenish the desserts, this wouldn't be an issue. But I would be @!#^*@!#*^#*^@# if I paid that much for a dessert buffet and showed up at the time they told me to, only to find out that the buffet has been picked over and nothing is left!
I agree that the staggering of ADR times is misleading. Unless a guest had been to the party before, or had researched it on discussion boards such as this, they would arrive at the party "late" if they arrived at their assigned time.

We have been to the party four times.

Do they replenish desserts? Yes, constantly, each time we have been there. Last time, we sat right beside the buffet tables, and we saw how hard the cm's worked. They kept putting out huge quantities of desserts at a quick pace. We also got to see how the guests behaved. Some grabbed desserts with a eagerness and speed that suggested that they hadn't eaten all week.

I have never seen them run out of desserts. But, some types of desserts do run out. I watched them put out several trays of crème brulee but they were gone pretty quickly, then there was no more crème brulee. Eventually, there were more cupcakes than anything else. So, the buffet was never empty, but the variety decreases.

I was just there Sunday and there was a photopass photographer, but he only did one shot in front of the castle.

Thanks for the quick reply! So was it of you & your party posed at the party with the castle behind you?

Still trying to decide if I want to purchase the CD so trying to figure out what kind of shots I might get on it. Have never purchased the CD, or even any pictures off the site after our trips. I always have the PP photographer take a shot or two with our camera at meet & greets if we all want in the picture. Don't have a real good one though so I know any night time shots with my camera will not be great.

Yeah they had the photographer to the right as you come in to the party. It was a nice picture with the castle in the background. In my opinion the photopass cd is well worth it. I got the photopass plus last trip and we were there 5 days and got well over 200 pics. They seem to be doing a lot more magic shots than I've ever seen.

PERFECT! I think you just made my decision for me!

Crowds after party/fireworks

I apologize if this was already discussed but I was wondering what the crowds were like when the fireworks were over and you are trying to leave the party. Are you allowed to stay and continue eating desserts or do you leave and enter the craziness of the crowds? Any thoughts/help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

The desserts will be taken away not very long after the fireworks end. I'm sure you can hang around in the seating area though.

We went last night, June 15 and here is my review:

Our table was fine, a great view of the fireworks. Here is what I did not like:
- it was unorganized and in need of crowd control by the CMs
- We had to wait in line so everyone went in at the same time which meant everyone headed to the desserts at the same time, another line
- it was a free for all with people taking four plates of desserts
- they ran out of silverware and bowls
- they refilled the trays but not for long, you basically got one shot at the line before most of the food ran out
- it well like a free for all at feeding time.
- I think people were trying to get their money's worth


It was a good concept and something different to do but it would have been better if they staggered the people coming in kept the food there throughout the party and not for only 15 minutes or so. No one was directing people at the buffet and it seemed like the CMs did not know what they were doing. I think they should get rid of the ice cream area as it was congesting the lines. my advice is to get there a little early and be first in line as we were one of the last people in which may have been our problem.

I was there on the 15th as well and couldn't agree more. The dessert area was chaos. The area was way too small and the flow was completely disorganized. They should really figure out a way to replenish the items from behind the line instead of walking through the throng of ppl waiting in line.

I was also disappointed in how quickly people stated lining up along the railing. Previous times we have gone we were able to watch the castle projection show from our seat then move to the railing for the fireworks.

Does anyone know the latest date that they are taking reservations through right now? I went back a few pages and saw that someone got August 22, but I wasn't sure if they had opened up September or October yet.

TIA!
