We had a front row table for two Sunday night. People went to the rail for the castle pre-show and blocked the view, but the fireworks were perfect. We stayed seated and loved it. Tink could have kicked us in the head!

I'll do it again in a heartbeat. Not having to contend with someone's foot under my butt while I wait on the curb is priceless.

Thanks for responding about my rail question. I will have our 26m old daughter (by the time we go) with us, and since Wishes will probably be at 8pm, I think we are going to try the party. I suppose I have quite a wait to book for December. Judging my the responses on this thread, it won;t be till probably October. Oh well!! See who ever is left on this thread when I rejoin later this year.

I haven't checked if it's even available for my dates yet, but I'm going back and forth between the dessert party and the Pirates and Pals Fireworks Voyage. Has anyone here done both of these? I know the cruise is more expensive, but I'm just considering both.

We have done both! It was nice to experience both views of the fireworks but I would choose the Dessert Party again in a heart beat! And so would my 6 year old daughter. We did Pirates and pals last April (easter break). My daughter dud Pirates League earlier in the day and was very excited about the cruise. At the last minute a thunderstorm rolled through the area andwe weren't cleared early enough for departure over the water and missed about the first 2 minutes of Wishes. It was nice seeing the fireworks from the biat but much prefer being close up at the Terrace where you can be kicked by Tink. also the snacks at Pirates and Pals are yummy (all prepackaged cookies, granola bars, brownies, popcorn, cotton candy) but the dessert party treats are by far more scrumptious!

We've been more than a few times....stayed sitting all except the last time, where we were seated next to the podium check in. Perfect place to watch the fireworks...but pricey...they keep raising the prices...it was $17 the first time we went.

I did this back in October and I can remember the stress of waiting for the dates to open up.... for some reason I didn't stop my subscription to this thread. Perhaps deep down I knew we'd be coming back?

& here I am ready to put myself through it again - I'm waiting on september.

Kathy is correct we are hopeing and waiting for them to release booking dates for March.......which could be any day now based on the past but it is anyones guess. I would say possibly early March you might see them load May dates into the system

Happy Waiting!
