This is a possibility. I want to do Ohanas at some point during the trip though....anyone know if Ohanas easily accesible from Epcot? I could move our Ohanas night to our last day and then do Wishes Dessert on 8/19. That would actually be perfect (assuming I can get into Ohanas!)

We are first time visitors so I don't know much about transportation around the World.... Probably should start researching that now and stop thinking so much about food!!

That wouldn't be bad if you can get a reservation! You can just take the monorail to the poly from EPCOT good luck finding that reservation! (I wouldn't cancel the other one until you've booked the new one)

Yeah, I just checked and all they have available is 9:40. That's a bit late for my 5 year old... I'll keep checking periodically and see what I can get.

I would book the dessert party for the 18th. If you can move the O'Hana ADR, might work a bit better, but the night we're doing the dessert party (or hoping to anyway) we have a 4:45 ADR at CRT. Fireworks aren't until 10 when we're there so I don't think we'll be too full by 9ish for the party.

Sorry, i'm getting into this conversation late and may have only seen a little of the conversation, but ...
there is only one time for the dessert party. If the fireworks start at 10, then you will be admitted between 8:30 - 9pm. The times Disney gives are for their computing purposes, but all can enter at the same time. Regardless, the fireworks would start at 10. They have the projection show about 15 minutes or so before that.
I only mention the above because you're mentioning that 9:40 is a bit late for your child. Just wanted to let you know that those times are irrelevant to the entrance of the party, and the stationed time of the fireworks.
If you want to go to the dessert party and can get in at the "9:40" time, then you're in. If you wait too late, you might not get in at all. :thumbsup

EDIT TO ADD: OK, just read the above posts. i'll feel really stupid if you were referring to getting an O'hana's reservation and was not talking about the dessert party!

Wow! I was checking posts since May 15 to see if anyone booked for June or July....

All posts were for the August (or later) arrival...over 300 posts!

Sorry for the wait everyone...i know it's frustrating. For those of us a few months ago, they gave us less than 30 days before our month's opened up. Hope you all have a better situation open up for you!

Just got back from our trip and we did the dessert party twice - Monday and Saturday. It was fantastic. My husband said the only way he wants to see MK fireworks is with the dessert party. The desserts are awesome, even though you eat yourself sick almost, and the fireworks view is amazing. Keep trying to get your reservations and stalking this thread! It is well worth it! I hope everyone trying is able to get there ressie!

Help Please -

I was thinking of doing this with my sister as we are staying one night at WDW prior to our cruise. I asked her if she wanted to go but she said no....I do

So how likely do you all think it would be for me to do a walk up for the two of us on September 22 (saturday night) rather than making reservations?

I think she will like this but she is thinking of the cost - so if we do it, I will probably pay for us both....

If there is walk up availablility and I can get her to agree then I will budget for it. If I understand the reservations - you have to pay now and if she isn't wanting to do this then I don't want to lose my money. I know between now and then as it gets closer I may change her mind (like when we are there).

Not 100% sure but I think walk-ups are not possible for the desert party . You have to have an ADR to get in there...

You don't pay unless you don't cancel appropriately. I would book the ADR and cancel a week before if your sister is still opposed

For the love of all that is holy, it is 'OHANA! Not O'Hana's!

Sorry, huge pet peeve.

Thank you - I don't know how to post two in one response but you both said essentially the same thing -

so I will wait and wait and wait (rather anxiously - like everyone else ) for September to open and then make my ADR ---- thanks to you all!
