    We are going to Disney 12/15/16-12/22/16. We are able to book our dining reservations 180 days in advance but ''ILLUMINATION SPARKLING DESSERT PARTY'' is not open yet. Only until 09/28/16. Why? Do you know when available?

    Hi, Francine!

    Oooh! You're going to be in Walt Disney World at the most magical time of the year! I'm so excited for you!

    Special ticketed events such as the spectacular IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party are made available for guest booking a little differently than Advanced Dining Reservations. While ADRs are open at 180 days prior to your date of stay, other dining events are typically open a bit later.

    Good news, though! If you head over to the Dessert Party link provided above, you'll see that additional dates have been released since you asked your question. Keep checking back until you see the date on which you'd like to enjoy this extra-special treat.

    You are sure to enjoy your visit to Epcot at this very special time of year, too; Holidays Around the World at Epcot makes that theme park even more glorious than it is on every other day! Have so much fun!

    Send us more questions as you plan your visit to Walt Disney World, Francine; we love to help!
