    No it is not. :(

    You can really only see the tops of the floats.

    Depending on what night you are going, they sometimes have two parades

    Will they have our name already? Or do you print something out to bring with you?

    What are the odds of them doing the party the week of Thanksgiving? Has anyone ever been to one during Thanksgiving week? According to the calendar there is only one MSEP each night so trying to decide if we can see the parade another night if we do the party.

    Take a look at the pictures at the first page of this thread. Will help you determine the view of the parade.

    They have your name, and your table is preassigned. You may want to have your confirmation number for added security just in case.

    are they still using the lime green wristbands as entrance? Last time I went we all got them, but, were a bit peeved when we saw a few guests without sitting inside and eating - just wondering if anyone else has noticed this or is Disney implementing a new "guest" id system....

    As of april of this year, they do still use wrist bands. Ours were purple last time LOL...
    I'm not if Disney is implementing anything new.

    we had wristbands on mothers day. don't remember the color. I took mine off as we were exiting and then turned around to try and run back to table and leave tip (all this was after the fireworks ended) and they stopped me to ask where my band was.

    First I can't imagine even noticing this and second I have been many times and find it hard to believe someone could sneak in. The tables have cards with your name on it and typically only the number of chairs for people in your party

    I'm working on a touring plan and need some help with times.

    What time do the doors open for a show in June? What time should we plan to get into line?

    Thanks!

    The 'doors' open 1 hour before Wishes. However, since the seats are already assigned, showing up early does not benefit you in any way (besides getting those delicious desserts quicker ;)). I would say if you showed up 30 minutes prior to Wishes you will have plenty of time to find your seat, get your dessert and watch the Castle projection show which starts approx. 15 minutes prior to Wishes.

    For a 10pm Wishes show, they generally let you into the dessert party about 8:45 or so. I've seen the lines to enter the party start as early as 8pm. It's all a matter of personal choice as to when you choose to go.:thumbsup2

    I have a reservation on june 28. But I really want to try to get a july 4 reservation.

    So far the only way I have to see if it's available is to call them. Anyone know how to check online. When I go to the webpage of the Terrace Party and click on "Make a Reservation" It give me an error.

    Not to be a pessimist, but if you get a July 4 ressie now, I would invest heavily in lotto tickets as well.

    I'm not even sure they are doing a 7/4 party bc it is a special day at the MK and I think the party is closed/not offered on special event days.

    Anyone else here know more about the party and when they offer/don't offer it?

    They do offer the party on the fourth.

    And yes I am aware that getting one would be similar to winning the lottery. But I have hope that someone might cancel before their trip. You never know what can happen, etc.

    Sorry if this has already been asked. I skimmed through all the pages, but might have missed it.

    It was reported that they don't always (perhaps rarely) replenish the desserts. So, if folks DO show up at their ADR time, they run the risk of getting little or no desserts at the dessert party? Why would WDW tell someone to show up an hour past the start of the party? If we go in the future, at least we're armed with this information, but it just seems wrong that they would give you an ADR time that could be after the desserts have all been eaten! If they replenish the desserts, this wouldn't be an issue. But I would be @!#^*@!#*^#*^@# :furious: if I paid that much for a dessert buffet and showed up at the time they told me to, only to find out that the buffet has been picked over and nothing is left!
