Jan 2013 Dessert Party

I'm new to the boards, but not new to Disney as I've been about 8-10 times. I'm a college senior planning a trip for my boyfriend (I'm hoping to get engaged this trip--he's alluded to this several times ) and 3 of our friends (both my boyfriend and one friend has never been). We're going in early Jan 2013. My question is does anyone have the dessert party booked yet? I'm going to try to call this week, but I'm not even sure if it's open since they don't always open it 180 days ahead. I have a Res for two at Cinderella's Castle for breakfast but for a perfect trip I must get the dessert party and a Be Our Guest Res (I am checking everyday, I am devastated I missed the reservation release date). Also I'm very open to any suggestions to make the trip more magical. I want him and our 3 friends to have a wonderful time!

I just booked the dessert party for October. When I called they said reservations open about 60 days in advance. Hope you get yours!

There's a long-running thread on the Dining Reservations sub-forum stalking when the Dessert Party opens for ADRs each month. "About" 60 days is right, but sometimes it's 70 and sometimes it's 50, and if you don't keep a close eye on it you can miss out.

We've been twice and I was actually willing to skip it next year but DH informed me it is a must-do!

Thank you both! And I agree, it is a must do. I've been once before (in early 2011 I think) and it is beyond magical! Last time when I booked I guess timing just all worked out and it was somehow open.

If you click on the center thread in my signature, It will send you to the ADR Dessert Party Watch thread. There you will get notification when someone realizes January is able to be booked. Hope this helps!

I agree this is a must do. For most people it's a new thing to do number one.Disney does a good job of overpricing this but......it's vacation right ?
