    Some have had problems trying to book online. There are some CM's that seem to be misinformed that the DP is now available for reservations. I'd call back. Now, there may be a possiblility that there are some dates that are filled up. As far as a phone number, call Disney Dining: 1-407-939-3463

    Booking for April just opened up today. For the past few months, they have been allowing for booking about 30 days out.
    The party begins about 1 hour before wishes (despite what the reservation is), and ends after the fireworks end.

    There is very little "time waiting to get in". One of the main points of the Dessert Party is that you DON'T have to kill a lot of valuable time staking out a spot for the fireworks, or even in lining up early to get a good table. The table is assigned when you make the ADR and getting there early gets you nothing but sore feet from standing around waiting.

    The Party starts 1 hour before Wishes (ignore whatever ADR time you are given; the staggered times are just a computer glitch). You want to get there maybe 10 minutes before the Party starts, just to check in and get your wristband. When they open the Party they seat everyone who's checked in very, very quickly - just show you to the table that already has your name on it. Then they go back to check in & seat the stragglers. You and your family get an hour of quality eating, drinking, sitting, and conversing time, plus a great view of Wishes.

    And I can't wait for May to open now, because DH really wants to go back again this trip!

    The past 2 months have been about 30 days out, but you may want to start watching from the last week of April onward, just to be safe.

    Just did the dessert party for the first time last Tuesday... It was very nice! I thought there was plenty of room for all at the railing, though we did stake out our spot about 15 min before the fireworks began. Our table was front row and center! View was awesome while we ate dessert and we could see the electrical parade. Of course, it's not a perfect full fledged view, but enough for us. I will say that I was disappointed that they did not pipe in the wishes music... At times it was difficult to hear due to excited kids. The desserts were delicious and there were plenty. They also provide drinks which I didn't know beforehand. We got in line 10 min before 7 (wishes was at 8pm) and we had a 7:10 ADR. I had read that the earlier you book, the better chance you have of getting a front row table, but I didn't book until (I think) 3 weeks prior and we had the best view in the house. All in all, I would definitely do this again! You'll enjoy it!

    How much is it? My daughter may be getting married down at Shades of Green, and was wondering if this would be a nice celebration after a meal.
    thanks!

    No, they didn't.... Can you still hear, of course! I just think it would be nicer if they played it through speakers on the terrace. Like I said, with kids yelling, at times it was difficult to hear--just my opinion. But it wouldn't stop me from going again.

    The music is pretty loud, there are speakers not too far from the tomorrowland terrace restaurant. Now, if there was a lot of chatter near you, i'm sure that would distract you just as it would if you were right in front of the castle. Is it blaring? No., but it is at a comfortable level (in my opinion)

    With as quirky as the current WDW website is, I would recommend calling, but only while you are actively trying to get it online. I tried online first, confirmed there were openings for when I wanted, and as soon as I had a problem, I started calling dining. Got the ressie without a problem on the phone.
