What I have found is that if I don't click on the notifications then after two notices I don't get any more. So you may want to click on the notifications to go to the thread each time so that the system knows that you're still interested. On most other websites were I have email notification it continues to send whether I still want the notices months later or not, lol....but disboards seems to be considerate and stop them if you don't show some interest after a couple.

I was able to get my first choice date for November and am hoping to snag one for December as well, so I've been clicking every notice that comes in, lol.

I was able to book this for my family of four (2 A, 2C), thanks to you all here alerting everyone when the time came. I booked on an IPAD, which at the time, only allowed me to book for two people at a time. I did get 2 reservations for two ppl each at 8pm. I have since figured out how to book for 4 people on the IPAD. The times available now are at 8:30. Should I keep what I have or cancel and book for 4 together?
I hope this makes sense?


Edit called and had reservation switched to one party of four. Was given later time, but at least now I know we'll be at the same table!

Did you try to call to modify the first reservation?

Since they assign seating I would either call and try to get the reservations connected, or rebook for 4 so that they put you all at the same table!

My understanding on the times is that it is more about crowd control than actual required arrival time....you can enter anytime beginning one hour before the fireworks start. Since your table is already assigned there is no need to rush or wait in line early, but by spacing the times they don't have a long line when they first open. I haven't read about folks with "later" starting times being denied entry until their reservation time, so in your case opting for the 8:30 time to ensure you're all at the same table won't change anything.

I tried calling the night I booked online and was told there was no availability for 4 at all. Didn't realize when booking that the iPad would only allow for 2 when booking unless done a certain way. I'll call again and ask if they can link them or switch.
Thank you!

Which way need to be done to book for more than 2 in the IPad? I will like to do a reservation for 5 for December when available. Thanks

I know if you go thru the regular Dining page and have your party size entered then search by date and scroll down to Tomorrowland Terrace dessert party you should have no problem on the iPad, it seems to only be stuck on two if you do the search for the party and try to book that way

No problems with size of your party if you book on a computer.

I have been trying to figure out how to get notifications through the app. I went into my IPhones settings and turned the notifications on for the disboards app, but am not getting any. I have subscribed and the email notifications are coming through. I am not very familiar with apps since I just recently upgraded my old phone to this smartphone. Can anyone help me please?

Well I just subscribed to this thread and will now be anxiously awaiting the opening of the December dates. I will be trying for either the night of our MVMCP, or for the last night of our trip. It would be nice to have such a great view for the party night. However, the last night of our trip is when the Christmas crowds roll in and the overall crowd predictions are a "10". I don't know if I want to avoid the park all together, or plan for the party so we have somewhere nice and uncrowded to sit and enjoy. Getting out of the park would still be a nightmare though. I will have to see what I can get.
