I may be wrong but I remember Wishes always being on the opposite nights of the MNSSHP and MVMCP. We went to both last year and the Terrace was closed for both parties I attended.

Thanks!
You do not get tickets to the dessert; it's a pre-paid event but just a reservation.

Right now, Disney does not have any dates open for the Halloween party. They are all grayed out. Last year, they did hold the dessert party on the same nights as the Halloween party. I believe, the Halloween party dates for the dessert party were opened later. It could happen this year. It might not. I'm not sure it was every Halloween party. I just heard reports (on this thread) that it was done.

I would book something else if you want to attend, and then cancel after you book the night you'd prefer if Disney opens the dessert party for the same nights as the Halloween party.

I'm not sure I'd want to attend on the night of the Halloween party. The Halloween party is a different event, isn't cheap, and the dessert party would eat into quite a bit of that time. I'd rather enjoy the shorter rides, special parade, meet rare-ish characters, and go trick-or-treating.

Thanks! I guess we'll check in just before 8 and then walk out to enjoy the parade?

Thanks for the clarification. I was hoping that was the case and our date didn't sell out that quickly. I know when we went to the party in 2009 we did the the Wishes Dessert Party. We have also done the party for the past two MVMCP's. So I assumed they would still have the dessert party during MNSSHP. I guess we just have to wait till they open.

There really isnt anything else that we would like to book. 10/30 is our anniversary and I am really trying to reserve Wishes that day. If we can't pull off the Wishes Party we will probably blow of the MK and do something a little more romantic.

Thanks again!

It is assigned. But even if you get a seat further back about 5 minutes before the show everyone walks over to the banister and stands there while Wishes is performed. So you will be good!

I've been to the party twice now, both times as a party of two sitting in the front. Although the CMs told everyone they could stand, nobody ever did.

Maybe I just had two odd experiences but just thought I'd share my two cents

Funny you say that, we are always a party of two and have always gotten the front table regardless of when I booked. But we have never been to a party where nobody got up to stand. Not a big deal, I am usually taking pictures so I am better off standing anyway.

I know back by the desserts and under where Tink lands nobody really stands. But every time we have been in the front and center people have always stood up.

Same here, and we've gone three times. All three times we were in the front, and only once did anyone stand at the railing (although quite a few kids did this past time.)

How did you make the reservations? I have been checking every day and no October... I just called and was told my date 10/1 was already full... How did I miss them opening up the reservations? Did you call or go online?

I wonder, how does that effect your Halloween/Christmas party experience. Does it eat up too much time of the hard-ticketed event?
I found the dessert party during MVMCP really ate up a lot of party time and wouldn't do it again
