Taking reservations 45 days out

Just got off the phone with a dining reservation CM. I was hoping to book the Dessert Party for Jan 26, 2013. She said that Dessert Party reservations are available 45 days prior to the event date (for 1.26.13 that means December 12, 2012). So, count 45 days backward from the date that you want and mark it in your calendar. Call and make the reservation that morning.

Hope this helps others get their reservation. It's a great experience!

If I were you I wouldn't wait until December 12 to check on a reservation. NORMALLY, reservations for a month all open at one time. For example, December 2012 reservations opened last week for all days except December 30 & 31. I would start checking the Dessert party thread in November. Last year, all of January except the 1st and the 2nd opened on November 29th.

A couple of days ago, I booked the dessert party for Dec. 14. That's more than 45 days from the date.

We went to it last year and really enjoyed it.

I didn't see labels on the desserts in the pictures on the first page. Are the trays labeled so you know what everything is?

The two times i've been there, they did not have anything labeled. There are CM's there that may be able to help you determine what the items are though.

Dessert Party During MVMCP

I'm a newbie and I am not sure if I have made a good decision or not. I got a reservation for the Dessert Party on December 11...same night we have tickets for the MVMCP. My question is this....the parade is at 8:15 that night and the fireworks will be at 9:30. Can I get a spot inside the dessert party in time to see the parade? Maybe I should not be doing the dessert party and MVMCP the same night? Can anyone help me with figuring this out?

Dessert Party During MVMCP

I'm also attending the dessert party during MVMCP and have a different question. My date is Friday, November 9 with an 8:50 p.m. reservation. Christmas Wishes starts at 9:30 p.m. Does anyone know what time the party starts? Would I be correct guessing 8:30 p.m? Thanks.

You will only see the tops of the Parade floats if you watch the parade from the dessert party.

You could get into the party after the parade in time for the fireworks, Your table has already been reserved for you...however there is no guarantee as to the selection of dessert items once you get there.

Someone that has been to the party on a MVMCP might be able to help better with this question

Most of the time, they start the party about 1 hour before the fireworks begin. I haven't been to MVMCP, so i don't know. Someone else who has been may be able to answer better for you.

You can also ask and check the 2nd ADR wishes thread in my signature.
Hope this helps!
