Christine & Rosie now we can all wait together not sure yet if we will go in Nov or Dec although I am thinking maybe our first night. Hope the Park hours for Dec come out soon so I can decide for sure.

Thank you, Sheila!

I hope the hours are released soon too - have to know Park hours to decide on ADR plans!

We got 8:00 for July 3rd for a 9:00 fireworks start. MSEP is after the fireworks (usually it's before) at 10:00. It's also an EMH, so the dessert party is the BEST THING EVER for watching these spectacular fireworks on what promises to be a crazy crowded night.

Thanks for the info - we have it narrowed down to a date that would work really well to not be too soon after a meal so I'm really hoping we'll be able to snag a specific evening in Aug

So as our Wishes booking date approaches - not fast enough! - I want to ask those of you who have booked before: Are you making your reservations online or calling? And does the time of day when reservations open vary? Do I just start checking every hour on the hour? That wouldn't be excessive at all, would it?

Yes, this was the exact same case when we went in 2009. We did the DP with the Fourth of July fireworks (on July 3,) and then Spectro (at that time it was Spectro) was at 10:00 and it was an EMH night.

Let me WARN you....... if you think you're going to leave the DP and go find a spot for the MSEP bring your suit of armour! They were routing people out of the park through Tomorrowland, so it was MOBBED all around the DP and we could barely even get out of the terrace area. Then, the CMs were trying to MAKE us go with the flow out of the park. We said we were staying for EMH, and they said we'd have to go with the crowd because it was too dangerous to go the other way. They said we could either go out to the front of the park and then come back in to watch Spectro, or go with the crowd and then take a left to go through Fantasyland and around through Liberty Square to find a spot.

At that point it was already 9:30 and we were worried we were going to miss Spectro. We waited it out a little bit, and then another CM let a group of us go toward Main St (past the Plaza and Casey's) so we could cross over to Liberty Square/Frontierland to find a spot for Spectro. They said it should have been clear enough by that point so it was ok.

Let me tell you...I have never been so afraid for my safety. It was a MADHOUSE! People were knocking over strollers and wheelchairs, pushing, screaming.... it was nuts. Luckily, we were 3 adults, so we chose a meeting place, and tried to individually duck and weave until we could get across. It took us 45 minutes to get from the DP to a spot for Spectro in front of Diamond Horseshoe. Due to the madness, Spectro started VERY late (I think it was closer to almost 11:00.) I just wanted to give you a heads up in advance. Otherwise, it was a wonderful night and we had a blast, along with a crazy story to share

Good to know; I had heard that elsewhere, too. Fortunately, we have another night in the Magic Kingdom for MSEP, so we weren't planning on trying to see it on the 3rd. We thought we would hang around after the fireworks until it was safe to get out. I hope they'll let us as I don't want to fear for my life while I'm at the happiest place on earth.

That is the best idea! Stay in your safe little sugary bubble until it's all clear I wouldn't think they'd have any problem with you staying in there for a little while afterwards. Have fun! It's one of the BEST nights of the year to do the DP for these exact reasons!!

Hello All:

Waiting for August as well.

A question though. It seems there will be 8 and 9 pm seating’s. With Wishes at 10pm what time would you recommend? If I make an 8 pm reservation is it ok to show at 8:30?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!
