    This makes me happy since I was disappointed because there were no tables available. I'll have to keep checking for this.

    It's there on the website.. Maybe view all and look for Tomorrowland Wishes Dessert Bar. When I get on the computer later, I'll see if I can post the link to it.

    Yes. Check back with the link I provided. I tried and doesn't look like May is open yet. I was able to get times for April, but no dates in May yet. Check everyday and often each day. Good luck.

    There is a thread in the dining section just for Wishes dessert party reservation watching. Disney is very random with their timing on opening those reservations and the best thing is to follow that thread so you're not checking for ADRs every day, twice a day! I can't look for it now on my phone but it's there somewhere. Usually pretty current. (First or second page)

    I had quite a few such as:
    -if you are on the dinning plan use all the left over snack credits to take home as gifts for friends!
    -Pack as less as possible on the way don't over pack as on the way back you will need a lot more space especially if you buy a lot of stuff (Like me!)
    -Using my phone to check queue times so for instance if a ride that usually had a big queue is temporally unavailable I can check it every so often and get over there when it opens to avoid long queues
    -If there is a firework display or a parade going on usually the queues are all pretty small so get on all the rides you usually can't go on and see the parade another day

    Hope they helped but they are the tips I always seem to use!

    Just booked our ADR for the Tomorrowland Wishes Dessert Party for
    April2nd !! :cool1:

    Just an FYI the online reservations were taking a long time to load to I called. The person on the phone stated that you cannot book this online and can only do it by calling.

    Thanks everyone for the awesome tip! My family will be so excited!
    :)

    That depends. There are lots of good spots. It depends on how long you want to sit (on the ground) or stand and wait. How long you are willing to walk to leave after they're over? Which gate you want to leave from? Are you just interested in the actual fireworks, or do you want a really good view of the full effect with the (slightly boring) lull with the story and the globe in the middle? Do you want to have a meal as part of your wait for a possibly good view?

    (I like over by the Rose and Crown, or to the right of the accessible area close to the Int'l gateway walk).

    I wondered why they changed this? DW and I went in December and I was able to book online.

    At least you got through. Have fun.

    hmm that is weird, I checked and you can book online. Not sure why she said that. I was having problems that night with reservations so had to call anyway. She apparently was wrong. Sorry for the confusion. :confused3

    Priority Seating... code speak for Disney's version of "Reservations". Once you check in you should be the next group seated for your size table. ;)

    :worship:The best tip I received was
    To go early, be at rope drop.
    We went early to Animal Kingdom & was at the area where the Lion King was ( Camp Mickey & Minnie ) before it opened, & my DD was chosen to open Camp Mickey & Minnie with Chip & Dale.
    We went to Magic Kingdom to see the rope drop, now we went on the first bus at 7:00 Am, they did not open until 9:00 AM, so we knew we would have a long wait (DH wanted to be on a less crowed bus), we were the only family standing at the turnstiles & a CM chose us as the opening family.

    The other tip that was really good was Have a plan for each Park-the things that you want to do the most. We got most of them done, but the New FL was a bust except the Dumbo Ride. I did not want to waste our time, so we just moved on to the other things.

    I can't wait to go back, get vacation!:yay::dance3:
