    If I book the post fireworks dessert party at Tomorrowland Terrace do we have to check in an hour before or is that when checkin starts. I'd rather check-in closer to fireworks time so we can do more before the fireworks. Thanks!

    Hi, Tracie! Welcome back to planDisney, and thank you for another question!

    I am happy you are interested in booking one of the Magic Kingdom Fireworks Dessert Parties! It is the perfect way to end a magical day at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park. I participated in the Seats & Sweets Party last year, and let me tell you, there is nothing better than enjoying Happily Ever After in a seat with a plate of sweets and a glass of bubbly! For the Mouseketeers in your group, there are delicious options too, as well as an assortment of refreshments, including lemonade and Disney's iconic POG (passionfruit, orange, and guava) juice! 

    The way check-in works for the Seats & Sweets party is that you can begin check-in 60 minutes before the fireworks start, but keep in mind that seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you want a table that is closest to the balcony, get there as early as possible! For the Pre-Party, check-in begins 90 minutes before Happily Ever After, where you can enjoy all the sweets before the show, and then you will be escorted to your viewing area in Plaza Garden before the fireworks start. Post-Party guests begin check-in 60 minutes before the fireworks and will be escorted to their viewing area in Plaza Garden, once the fireworks are over, will be escorted to Tomorrowland Terrace to enjoy the party. 

    Whichever party choice you decide to go with, just know you can expect a fantastic view of Happily Ever After, and delicious sweets to enjoy with your family. However, I do recommend the Seats & Sweets party. Having a seat to enjoy the show is wonderful. I also recommend arriving as early to the party as possible so that you can have an excellent view of Cinderella Castle!

    Tracie, thank you again for stopping by planDisney. I hope all of this information was helpful, and please visit us again if you need additional pixie dust! You've got a friend in me!

    Reach out and find your happily ever after!
