Hi sjs314!!

I loved your lineup of possible DDP restaurants over on Christine's thread. And CPP and a Dessert Party would really top it off nicely. I am so excited for you.

I'm subbed in here. Great thread idea! Not doing Dessert Party for August but maybe my next trip with Mom fall or December. I think she'd like it a lot.

There is only one party...unless there are two fireworks. Everyone is seated together...and the tables are marked the nameplates and only the proper amount of chairs. Taped so there is NO moving tables or names. Doesn't matter when you arrive the tables are assigned before anyone gets there. Get there ant time within 90 minutes before.

Hey Linda

I am thinking maybe actually making it to the dessert party this time. In March we were both exhausted after our 5 pm dinner at Tony's we decided to skip the dessert party and call it a night. I hated losing the money I paid but such is life, we would never had made it we were just too tired. This time will not head to MK till later in the day.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!
We are also waiting for August.

However, I am confused by the seating times. If you are seated at 8 do you stay there and eat for 2 hours and if you are seated at 9 will there still be food?
I was under the impression that you were seated an hour before Wishes.

We have a res for 7/31. That is DD4's birthday (she will be 5) and dessert party is in lieu of a bday cake. We thought it would be a little more exciting.

She slept through the parade and fireworks past year (in my arms on the curb by the haunted mansion) so Im crossing my fingers this goes over better!

Hi all,

I know most of the May people may not be frequenting this thread so much anymore, but I wanted to post this here too.

I have to cancel my party reservation for Friday, May 18th (9pm) for a party of 3.

I am not going to cancel until tomorrow, so if someone needs it, PM me and we can coordinate a time.

Lisa

I am desperately trying to get in for 5/28 for my husbands 50th. Do you think there's any hope of a cancellation?

Please pm me if you are canceling. Thanks

This is my first time doing this (obviously). Wishes is at 10, the party starts at 9. Do we line up at 8? Do I need a "ticket" or something that I need to get from Guest Services at the park or my resort? Or do I just need my name and confirmation number?

And.... the night we reserved is also an EMH night at MK. We plan to head over to Tomorrowland after the party. I have heard they usher people out through the walkway through the restaurant after the show. Should we plan to just wait there for a half hour then head over, or will we be able to get through the crowds to Tomorrowland?

There is no need to line up. All tables are pre-assigned. If your reservation is at 9:00, you can show up at 9:00. There may be a small line when you get there if that's the first time that night, but you won't wait long There are no "tickets." You just need your ADR number/name just like with a restaurant ADR. You DO have to have park access that day, the payment for the party doesn't allow you access into the park

The only time we've ever been ushered out of the party a certain way was on July 3 when it was a madhouse! Normally they allow you to hang out, nibble/drink a little more as they're cleaning up, etc... Tomorrowland will be EASY to get to from the DP. No worries there

Aw, thank you. BUT maybe next year you'll want to go back a little later for the full holiday effect....so, perhaps our dates will actually overlap then!

I prefer to avoid the first weekend in December when the Christmas Parade is filmed at MK. Having said that, next year the 1st weekend of December is later - the first Saturday is the 7th!

I am thinking of going for F & W and MNSSHP next year. I am excited to go during the filming but not so sure Bob will be Did some research and think we may go over that Friday when they film the stage shows instead if Sat when they film the Main St part.

We use to always go to the Easter Parade For the LIVE telecast and wait 2 hours in our spot. One year Jason was so thrilled since he got to talk to Regis Philiben unfortunately the video tape is lost
