    When exactly do the advance dinning for the dessert parties open up

    Hi, Christina! I am actually watching along with you for my favorite dessert party to open for summer booking. My younger daughter will be celebrating her birthday while we are at Walt Disney World Resort and she has asked that her big day be filled with lots of cake. The best way I know to make this happen is to attend one of the dessert party celebrations!

    Reservations for the various Dessert Parties work a bit differently than most Advance Dining Reservations. Instead opening 180 days in advance, these usually open in large blocks of time. Sometimes, a month may open for booking all at once; other times it may be several months that open at once. My sister and I attended Magic Kingdom Park's Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing this past summer so we could get a great view of Happily Ever After. Having the reserved viewing section made seeing this nighttime spectacular much easier and the desserts were supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Watching for your choice of dates to open may mean you will have to check the website often, but I assure you it will so be worth it.

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your question, Christina. Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you as you plan more of your upcoming vacation.
