Were the desserts out and available that early? That part would be nice

But then, if you arrived for the "official" starting time at 9pm, were they replinishing the desserts or were they out of some things by then
That part wouldn't be so great if you arrived at 9pm.

Yes. All the desserts were out and ready.

At our party, they probably started running out of some of the desserts at about 9:00-9:15. No doubt about it. BUT, 75% of the people were there by then.

One thing to remember is, when they run out of one dessert, they replace it with something completely different. So, if you don't grab something right away to try it, you might miss it--there is p-l-e-n-t-y of everything though. But if you fill up and grab everything you want on the first trip, you might be unable (full/sugared up) to try something equally or more appealing later. We were victims of the latter. When we go in October (hopefully), I'll know to pace myself.

They never ran out of desserts, not even at the end, but the choices did go down towards the end. At our party (and it will vary by who is at which party), there was always plenty of fruit and chocolate covered strawberries. Lots of cookies too. The ice cream never ran out, but the toppings dwindled at the end--much to the disappointment of my son. The drinks remained constant and full--they ran out of nothing there.

Personally, I plan on being early again. I liked being able to get great pictures in front of the castle before there was a line (or anyone in the background). I liked seeing what all the choices were, but I'll go slower (and I know what I don't like now too). I like being completely done before the show so that we truly get to enjoy the show. It's not like waiting in crowds to see the parades/fireworks. It's relaxed and enjoyable. It's quality time enjoying your family--very nice down time. No one is pushing. You aren't "guarding" your spot. You aren't basically doing nothing. No one is trying to get you to buy over-priced junk for your kids. And the snacks are already paid for.

Thanks for all the tips I'm soooo excited for our first dessert party in August

I spoke to a CM yesterday that told me there is no such thing as a Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party (the official name on WDW's website) nor a Wishes Dessert Party. He said Tomorrowland Terrace is just a seasonal restaurant. What have we all been thinking, we are quite a creative group to make up a dining event lol.

You have to admire the rigorous training CMs at CRO are put through to have such knowledge.

LOL, they have always been clueless about this party. The first year, they actually booked me for the wrong thing-luckily the Dis straightened me out so I could call back and fix it.

I feel for the poor folks who call up asking for this and are turned down because the CM's don't have the information. THis is why I book online now.

I cant believe we made it all up! I am so dissapointed!

Sounds like there is some good training going on over there.

How does the Wine and Chocolate Party at Chef's de France sound? You get to sample wine and a piece of chocolate from each country in EPCOT!!! Remy would be the interactive entertainment and everyone gets a free souvenier wine glass to KEEP!

This made me giggle. If there's no such thing, then WHO TOOK MY MONEY... Got to love well-trained CMs.
