For me, it's just a great way to have a seat, watch Wishes and not have to fight with 20,000 other people for a spot. The desserts are just a plus.

I agree that it is an individual decision. We have been 5 times. We love it.

I have never seen them run out of all desserts. I have seen certain desserts run out and be replaced with others. And it is not always the same desserts that run out. Sometimes creme brûlée runs out, last time there was plenty of it, but sugar cookies ran out.

Last August we were at the party during a terrible thunderstorm. The parade was cancelled and wishes was delayed 45 minutes. Attractions and all of tomorrowland were closed. If we were not at the party we would have left, wet and frustrated. Instead we relaxed, dry under the roof, with plenty of desserts left and coffee and other drinks to linger over. So the party lasted at least 45 minutes longer than usual and we got to stay the whole time. I felt bad for the cm's but they were wonderful.

That night the party was definitely worth it to us. And it was an Emh night. By the time wishes was over the weather was perfect, and we stayed for a wonderful night.

It's never been worth it for use in the past but it was for this upcoming trip. We aren't huge fireworks fans. Well that isn't entirely true. We're just usually too tired and worn out by the end of the night to stake out a spot and wait and wait to see them. However, we are going to MVMCP for the first time this year and thought it would be worth it to have a comfortable place to sit and wait and then stand to watch the special fireworks. It will likely be a one time deal for us, but we are looking forward to it.

We have done it every time we have gone. The first time the desserts were not replenished, but this last time they were and it was a fantastic experience. We were talking about not doing it this time, but then my husband thought it might be a good idea so I will book it again. For us it is a way to get off our feet for awhile and out of the crowds. The desserts are just a bonus. This last time they were encouraging us to stay afterward and refill as many times as we wanted. We were stuffed and couldn't but it was nice to linger for awhile.

We have gone twice and enjoyed it both times. The desserts are secondary to having a place to sit and watch the fireworks, especially for our kids. That being said, we have enjoyed all of the offerings and always found there to be plenty to choose from, even after the fireworks were over. The best part was the Photopass photographer on site to take photos with the castle in the background. Our pictures came out fantastic! So as an overall experience, it has been worth it for us.

We enjoyed it a few weeks ago. Plenty of food. They no longer have a PP photographer. The only negative was, despite having a table at the rail, the way the terrace is configured, there were people standing at the very forward part of the terrace...one of whom put his kid on his shoulders and totally blocked our (standing) kids' views. So, unsure we would do it again because it didn't seem that different from being among the masses.
