    ADR @ the Tomorrowland Dessert Party @ 7, with Wishes beginning at 8. Do we need to be there right at 7:00? I'm just thinking that the kids will probably be done feasting within a half an hour, so wondering if we could arrive @ 7:15-30 instead? THANKS

    Hi Mindy! My husband would tell you that I never arrive anywhere right on time, but I'd recommend that you don't arrive more than 15 minutes late for your Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party reservation. Many guests line up before the start of the party, so being a little late would help you avoid waiting in line to be seated. However, you don't want to be too late. My family attended the Dessert Party last spring, and it was the only time I've ever been at a Disney buffet where items were depleted and not replenished. There were plenty of desserts to go around, but on the night I attended, certain desserts and drinks ran out early in the party, and the castmembers condensed the two buffets down to one well before the fireworks started. Also, in order to have the best view of the fireworks, you'll need to stand along the rail, rather than sitting at your table. Most guests start staking out spots along the rail 15-20 minutes before Wishes, so you'll want to have time to eat your fill of all the sweets before picking your fireworks viewing spot.

    Hope you have a magical vacation! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions. We're happy to help!
