wishes dessert ?

So I *think* I'm getting a reservation for Feb 5th. I'm skeptical though. It says my reserve time though is 7:20pm. But doesn't it start one hour before fireworks? I'm not suppose to show up at 7:20 right???? I'm pretty sure I'm reading everything correctly, it says dessert party. I'm just hoping I'm not making reservations to Tomorrowland Terrace Rest. even though you don't need to reserve there.

Are Wishes at 8pm that night. They stagger the reservations for the computer system. You are able to arrive the full 60 minutes prior. I would line up at 6:45pm as others may get there earlier, but your seat is assigned. That will get you in around 7pm. You can enjoy a trip to the buffet. Then go get your pictures taken. Get a second plate if you want. Depending on the people attending if you have more get up that will be around 15 minutes prior.

Enjoy. It is our favorite thing to do now. We get a plate and drink and stay afterwards. We have never had a problem and the CM's are very, very nice. It is very relaxing for us.

I'm excited for it, and I'm sure my boys will love it too. Anything involving dessert!

shows you how clueless I am, yes the show is at 8, so I guess the reserve time is right. Thanks for the info!

No, your ADR time is not right, unless you like missing 1/3 of what you paid for.

There is 1 Dessert Party per night and it starts at the same time for everyone who had an ADR. The trouble is that whether you sign up for it by phone or online, the system insists on treating it like a restaurant with staggered start times, so some people will get ADRs for 6:20 pm and some will get then for 8:20 pm.

IGNORE THE TIME ON YOUR ADR. All that matters is the date. The party opens for all attendees 1 hour before Wishes. You'll want to go check in 10-15 minutes before that (they give you wristbands so you can leave and re-enter if you need to go use the restroom). Tables are pre-assigned so getting there any earlier is unnecessary. If Wishes is at 8 pm that night the Party opens at 7 and if you are there you will be seated at 7. Waiting until 7:20 to show up just means that the horde of locusts....I mean the other Party attendees.....will have already descended on the buffet tables. The CMs have been good about trying to keep things restocked, but there may already be things that have about run out.

Moral of the story: if you're paying for the Party, go to the whole Party. Go to the podium by 6:50 if Wishes is at 8. And enjoy; it's a great way to end a day at WDW.
