    Hi, we currently have Frozen Dessert Party tickets. It says entry at 8pm, but IllumiNations starts at 9pm. Can we continue to get on rides and show up by 8:30pm? If we got desserts at 8, left to meet Anna & Elsa, could we come back in at 9pm?

    Hi Stacy!

    The special dessert parties at Walt Disney World are a fantastic way to enjoy a night show at the parks.  Not only are you guaranteed the best viewing, but a delicious array of desserts is included in a relaxing atmosphere free from crowds.

    The Frozen Ever After Dessert Party at Epcot offers prime viewing for right in front of World Showcase Lagoon, which is located at the very beginning of World Showcase where the path to the countries split to left and right.  You will receive credentials when you check in for the party, which does allow you to leave and re-enter.  Since the location of the party is not directly near the Norway Pavilion where the Frozen sisters, Anna and Elsa, reside in the Royal Sommerhus, I do not recommend leaving the party for a visit to Arendelle.  You will have to walk through Mexico and then to Norway during the time when Guests are finding their evening spots to see the show on World Showcase Lagoon, so the walkways get extremely congested and I would hate for you to miss any part of the dessert party experience or feel rushed in any way.

    If you do choose to leave the party, check the My Disney Experience mobile app to see current wait times for any attractions or meet & greets you are interested in.

    Have a magical day!
