    So the family is going in September 2017 and we are looking to go to the IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party but it's not showing dates past May and hasn't shown dates for a month or two...Are they discontinuing the party?

    Warm greetings from the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ronn!

    Can I confess something to you? I don’t get teary-eyed very often over fireworks, but when I do, it is during IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. The fact that there are no dates past May could mean a few things: 1) They haven’t posted them yet, or 2) They are reimagining it. Nothing has been announced, but if they DO reimagine it, we should be keeping our eyes on the Disney Parks Blog for official news!

    While we wait for any updates, did you know that there are multiple other Fireworks Dessert Parties all over Walt Disney World Resort? There are also Specialty Fireworks Cruises that let you enjoy the show from a “Whole New World” (or point of view I should say). My suggestion would be to book a different Firework entertainment option, and then if the IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party is available at a later date, you could cancel your original reservation and switch it over! 

    I hope my answer helps in your planning of your family’s magical vacation! See you real soon,
