Well, my dear friends, my comrades in seeking an August Dessert Party date, we have been thwarted once again!!! August is STILL not open. Just for fun, I put in a date of July 23rd, you know, just so I could test my system to see if it actually WORKED??? Well, it DID work and there was actually an OPENING for the Dessert Party on July 23rd!! Too bad I don't get to Orlando until July 31st!!!! BUT, at least I know that my computer works and that it IS capable of making Dessert Party Reservations when they do truly become available for August.

I am late to this party and am trying for a June dessert party reservation. Trying multiple times a day with no luck. Does anyone ever cancel these? Anyone ever have luck snagging a last-minute reservation?

Don't give up hope!! I have seen reports of people actually walking up the night OF the party and getting in. I'm sure that's not the norm, but it happens. Keep trying online or by calling. You never know when something may come up. Best of luck to you!!!

I am stalking for a September date, but the pattern seems to be.....they open them late morning. Don't give up hope, I still think today may be the day for you guys!!! Then I will have to become the crazy, nervous wreck checking daily for September!

I need help deciding which date I should be trying to get the dessert party. Any thoughts?

I currently do not have park hoppers. My planned MK days are:
8/18 (dinner at Ohanas at 5)
8/19 (dinner at Be Our Guest at 7:30).

So I am considering 8/18.

Other option is to do it on 8/24, our last night, which I really like the idea of that. But to do it I'd either have to change that to an MK day, which would mean 3 MK days and only 1 Epcot day, OR buy park hoppers.

So what would you do????

I vote for 8/18, not ideal, but still good

I apologize if this has been addressed already, but if I'm looking for a September date when is the earliest that I should start checking? I'm assuming calling now is useless if August isn't open yet.

Personally I would cancel the Ohana dinner & do a lighter counter service for dinner at 5 on 8/18.
