3D Disney's Dessert Discovery Seating

Curious. . .

This question goes out to anyone who's experienced the 3D Disney's Dessert Discovery Event before!

Can someone tell me about the seating? I did not book 'Sweet Seats'. I specifically want to know are these long banquet tables? Tables for 4? Are there tables for 2? I know from what I've read that you sort of 'grab' you table on the way in. . . I'm fine with however the set-up. . .but would like some insight from those who've "been there, done that!" I think it is the only detail I've not seen in the reviews, postings, etc.

Thanks!

IIRC, there are round tables, seating about 8 or 10, like at a wedding, then there were some small high tables, where maybe 4 people could stand. There were also a couple of comfy chair/couch type seating areas. We had sweet seats last year, which were fantastic. Small tables for however many were in your party (we were a party of 2). From what I heard, you do have to kind of claim your table and not leave it unattended or someone else may try to commandeer it. But, I would say even with that annoying aspect, the 3D party was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious, so were the drinks, and there was a live band and singer for entertainment. Two of the many stations had plastic bags so you take home some of the items on that table (candies, cookies, bags of cotton candy, etc.). All in all, it was a lot of fun and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. Enjoy!

We went last year and did not do the Sweet Seats option, though I considered it. I was glad we didn't pay for it after seeing it. Maybe others who actually sat there have a different opinion. But it looked like nothing more than a marked off area with a low wall surrounding it to segregate from the other tables.

We had attended an event before for F&W and I was very unhappy with the seating because I really didn't want to walk around like at a cocktail party (there are not enough seats and tables for every attendee from what I could tell) and since I am very short, I hate those tall tables with the bar stool type seats. So anyway, that's why I considered the Sweets Seats option, but it actually sold out before I could book it.

Last year, we fixed the problem by arriving early and we were among some of the first to enter the location, so we had no problem securing a table that we shared with another couple (which ended up being great fun). I think the table we claimed sat 6, but no one else ever came and sat with us, just 4 of us.

It was a fun event and we enjoyed it more than the one we had done in the past, which was a Taste of Louisiana.

Last year, we sat at a table for four. Met a lovely couple and had a great time!
