We just had our dessert party last night! We booked within hours of June opening, and we were right in the front row! Great except that we have a tropical Storm coming through right now, so we got a little wet There were 3 of us, so the theory that the front tables are only for parties of 2 was debunked! We sat by the sweetest mom and daughter from New Orleans! Loved them

I am always checking.... It makes me nervous! I am so excited!

So Question...... I am hoping to book for 9/17 which would be DH and my "date night".... because its our only night by ourselves, I still want to do dinner first. Our ADR for dinner is for 6:10.... Do you think I should try and make it earlier... like 4:30 or 5:00? (IF we get the date we want.)

My husband asked me this same question - he just bought a tripod this past week and is looking forward to taking many pictures.

This is our first dessert party, my DW and I had the same discussion. Because it looks like there will be so much to eat at the party, we're talking about probably having only a light lunch before. Hopefully, someone that has actually been before will answer, inquiring minds would like to know.

for those asking about bringing a tripod, it can be done. My boyfriends is a pro photographer and brought his to the dessert party last year. He set it up in a corner by the rail so he was out of the way of everyone watching the fireworks up there but had no issues.

We have a reservation for a 3:30 lunch at T-rex the day I want our res for. I'm figuring we'll has a cs breakfast that morning instead of something quick in room, then late lunch, then dessert for dinner. I'm sure my kids won't protest!

We just booked a Wishes dessert party. We are planning a trip pretty last minute but we found an opening for August 6th at 9:20pm. I was very surprised that there was an opening this late out but grateful for it.

Question - it says 9:20 but some people say to arrive earlier than that. What is the normal time to arrive to it?

Update: I did read the replies and saw that 9:00 is a normal arrival time and the smaller times are generally overlooked.

Last time we were here we watched the fireworks with everyone else and I agree that it is a nightmare! We could not fully enjoy them that way.

Soooo I'm hoping for September 2nd. I have been trying and trying to book online, and it shows no availability. After reading this, I see they're not open for booking September yet....is that right? Any idea when booking will open?

The general rule is that the Dessert party opens about 1 hour before the fireworks. However a line starts forming about 1.5 hrs before the fireworks begin. When we went about a month ago, they let us in at 8:40pm, and i saw some get in even sooner according to some threads. Again, it makes no difference when your reservation time is...you can enter long before it, as all tables/seats are pre-assigned. Hope this helps.
