You may still have a possibility... i'd check it out quick though... either online or by calling. The phone number is located on page one picture one of this thread.

I wouln't say it's too loud.... perhaps the average of 200 people talking in a room. The music isn't blairing either.

I have a quick question if anyone can help me. We're celebrating our honeymoon at Disney in September. There's only one night we can do the fireworks party because our other night at Magic Kingdom they're doing Hallowishes.

Wishes is at 9 on the night we are planning to go to the fireworks party. We have an ADR at Tony's at 7:20. I figure we'll be done eating around 8:00 or 8:20. Does that leave us enough time to make it to the fireworks show? Should we pick one or the other? Does anyone know how far away Tomorrowland Terrace is from Tony's? I really want to experience both but I'm scared we'll be cutting it too close if we do both.

Thanks for reading

You should definitely be able to make it over from Tony's in time for Wishes, but remember that Celebrate The Magic is on at 8:45pm too, if you want to get there in time for that. The hour before Wishes is mostly just for everyone to eat the desserts, but it doesn't sound like you'll be doing much of that having just come from dinner? When I went to the Dessert Party I'd had dinner around 6:30pm and I still didn't feel hungry enough for all the desserts they had.

If you don't mind me asking, what is Celebrate the Magic? I'm going to see if we can do a mid afternoon reservation at Tony's instead. I really want to do the dessert buffet!

Its a projection show on the front of the castle, with Disney music, clips etc, definitely don't miss it! It starts about 15mins before Wishes and its so cool to see the whole castle lit up. I think a mid-afternoon reservation sounds like your best bet, they have SO many cool desserts that you want to have room to eat them all and its unlimited so most people go up to the buffet 2-3 times for refills.

Sidenote - I typed my last message while in bed last night and then I dreamed I was at the dessert party

I say it can be done, but you'll really be cutting it close in time. Before "Celebrate the Magic", you have the parade too...and walking from Tony's to the Dessert Party will take a longer time than normal. It's not far, but there will be a crowd to go through. Also, you'll just be getting done eating, then rushing to the dessert party. You'll be pretty full from dinner to be able to enjoy the desserts (my opinion anyway). With a 9pm Wishes, the dessert party will probably open between 7:45-8pm. The other issue i see is the possibility that your reservation at Tony's being delayed. If you want to do both, is it possible to change the tony's reservation to an earlier time? Just a thought.

Just returned

Just returned and thought I would share my experience of the Dessert party.

We were there on June 10, 2013, Party of 5. We arrived about 9:10 since everyone on here said no need to arrive early. Our table was about second row. People were already standing at railing. Most tables have partially obstructed view from the terrace.

The desserts were well-presented and plentiful. The selection was pretty much as described earlier in these threads. We each took a sampling of 5-7 small servings and returned to our table, then went back for tea, coffee or lemonade.

All the desserts were fine tasting and it was fun to sample so many different ones. Upon my second visit to the dessert stations, I was disappointed that they were already out of the pistachio crème brulee. It was probably about 9:20. So, if there is some dessert you are particularly enamored with, better to take a couple right off.

By the time Wishes was approaching, the railing was full up, and many spots just back of the rail, were still partially obstructed by the terrace roof, at least from seeing the higher-up fireworks. There was plenty of room to move back and forth and to still grab a dessert while watching.

The "Celebrate the Magic" show was unbelievably spectacular. They project images onto the castle, which appear very clear. I imagine there is quite a lot of technology to get the images to focus on the irregular surface of the castle. We were every bit as much impressed by this as by Wishes.

No, it's not worth $30 for the desserts, the view is good but not the greatest and the desserts are not gourmet quality.

But,
Overall, it was a great experience, we ate way too much dessert and enjoyed being removed from the claustrophobia of main street.

2 separate resvs?

Looking to do Dessert Party toward the end of October. We are 2 families with 9 ppl total (5a 4c). Would we be better off (maybe better seating?) with 2 separate reservations? This is our first time trying the dessert party. We are all looking forward to it.

Thank you!

Be sure to subscribe to sjs314's thread and you will get notification when people notice September (and subsequent months) open. That thread is listed in my signature...the ADR thread.
