    Currently I have reservations for May 13, 2017 for the Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace at 8:00 pm. Do I need to check in 60 minutes prior to the 8:00 pm reservation or 60 minutes prior to when the fireworks are scheduled for that evening?

    Hi, Kimberly! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m happy to help answer this question for you! 

    The Wishes Nighttime Spectacular is my all time favorite firework display! With the stunning Cinderella Castle in the background and the beautifully orchestrated soundtrack, it’s just perfectly magical! And add some yummy treats to the experience, you just cannot go wrong! 

    I did some research for you and found this on the know before you go section of the Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace information section on the website:

    •It is highly recommended that Guests check the fireworks schedule again upon arrival at Magic Kingdom park.
    •After reconfirming the fireworks showtime, please arrive at Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant for check-in 60 minutes prior.

    So, it looks like as long as you arrive 60 prior to the fireworks start time, you will be good to go! 

    One last tip: Be sure to log into your My Disney Experience account and link up all your reservations. This will help you have them handy, right on your mobile device, through the app. And don't forget to make your FastPass+ reservations for all the great attractions you won't want to miss! You can make these 60 days prior to arriving if you are staying at one of the wonderful Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, or 30 days before if you are staying offsite. 

    I hope this helps! Be sure to come back and see us soon!
