    Hi Moms & Dads For the Merry & Bright Dessert Party reservation says party runs 7-8:30 pm but HS closes at 8 pm. How does that work? Does the party location offer good views or will we still need to deal with crowds to see it all? First time going

    Hi, Linda!  The party does indeed go on until 8:30, so you will have a chance to walk down through the lights relatively crowd-free.  They will also serve desserts and beverages until 8:30, so there is plenty of time to enjoy the festivities.

    you will have a great overview of the lights from the vantage point of the party, but you'll want to walk through.  There are hidden Mickey's galore scattered among the lights, as well as the infamous Halloween cat.  You may also enjoy the atmosphere of standing on the street with the lights all around you.

    Have an absolutely amazing time!
