    Hi! I am looking to book one of the dessert partys for the Happily ever after show, but am unclear about the cancellation policy. Am I able to get a full refund if I cancel more than 24hrs prior to the event?

    Hi Kelsey!

    Welcome to planDisney!  If I close my eyes tightly right now, I can envision myself on Main Street, U.S.A., watching the night sky light up above Cinderella Castle while a soundtrack of my favorite Disney songs echoes through the air.  I think we should hop on a plane and go right now!

    Kelsey, the first time I watched Happily Ever After was part of a dessert party and I fell head over heels in love with the show!  I think any of the dessert parties are worth considering, but you're thinking about booking my favorite option - the Magic Kingdom Fireworks Dessert Parties: Post-Party!  When I booked the dessert party on a previous trip, my family opted for the pre-party.  The desserts were wonderful and the view of the fireworks was amazing, but the next time we go I think I'd book the post-party.  The crowds leaving Magic Kingdom Park right after the fireworks can sometimes be a bit overwhelming, so I like the idea of watching the fireworks from the Plaza Garden and then enjoying some desserts and beverages while the crowds thin.

    Reservations for the dessert parties are available 60 days before the event or 60 days before you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort if you're a guest staying in the Disney Resorts Collection.  These popular events do require you to pay the full price at the time of the reservation, but the current cancellation policy would allow you to be refunded that price if you cancel your reservation at least 24 hours before the party.  As stated in the policy, if you cancel less than 24 hours before the event, you'll be charged the full amount - no refund will be granted.  

    If you're a fan of nighttime spectaculars, you may also be interested in some dining packages available at other parks.  Each night, guests at Disney's Hollywood Studios are invited to step inside Mickey's imagination at the nighttime show, Fantasmic!  Dining packages are available with breakfast, lunch, or dinner options at various restaurants in the park.  Not only will you be able to enjoy a great meal, but you'll also receive a voucher for reserved seating for Fantasmic! that night.  Even better, if you're using the Disney Dining Plan, you can redeem Table-Service meals with this package.  It's my favorite way to see the show!  Over at EPCOT, you can enjoy dinner and a show when you dine along with a waterfront view of Luminous The Symphony of Us.  This fireworks dinner package is currently available at Spice Road Table and Rose & Crown Dining Room.

    Kelsey, I hope this helps you plan a vacation filled with magical memories!  Remember, you're always welcome to be our guest here at planDisney!
