Well, you would think that if they were going to be "closed for renovation" that they would have planned that many months ago, and it shouldn't be a surprise to the CMs.

Just seems to be poor management, but again, with the HUGE changes they are making right now, it's not all that surprising that something as confusing and haphazard as this has always been is even worse.

Let's hope they get their act together soon!

I did read somewhere that the dessert party has 160 seats.

It really doesn't matter where your table is, as everyone gets up and stands by the railing blocking the view from the tables anyway. Since this is a "show in the sky," with the overhang, you have to move to the railing to see it.

They told us when we were there in Dec that we were not supposed to bring our chairs to the railing - even though our table was right AT the railing. We simply turned our chairs around, and watched from our table, and no one stood in front of us...but everyone else gathered at the railing for the fireworks.

Is there enough room for everyone to stand at the railing? I don't want to pay all that money to then be stuck standing behind someone tall. Is there enough room for everyone to get a spot at the railing?

Yes, I think there is, but as I said, we were sitting, so I couldn't see the whole crowd. I think most people are considerate enough to let the kids and shorter folks in front, but then, the show is in the air, so it's pretty high up.

I had heard horror stories about how some rude people pushed and shoved their way to the front...I didn't see any of that. The only thing I would have changed is to put a muzzle on the loud and obnoxious woman at the table next to us who talked and berated everyone at her table throughout the whole show...hard to tune out, but we really loved the show (and the desserts!!)

I don't think the dessert party books within just a couple of hours. The event is not that well known, many people never heard of it and when browsing the wdw website most people never even notive it's there.
I went in may last year, booked the day it opened. But when I checked back about 2-3 weeks later, there were still tables available...so relax...I'm sure everyone lurking this thread will get in once reservations open up!

If it's the restaurant that has to release the dates is there any way you could start calling the restaurant? Get on them that way? The CMs know the problem but does the restaurant!

No way to call the restaurant directly.

We went to the dessert party last Saturday (1/26). It was wonderful! Totally worth doing at least once. We'll probably do it again. It was so relaxing to watch the fireworks that way.

I also wanted to report that they kept the desserts out during the fireworks and for a while after. Wishes was at 8pm the night we were there. They came around and gave us "last call" for desserts around 9pm. I don't know if that is a change in procedure or not since I had heard other people report the desserts were taken away during the fireworks. I just wanted to share.
