    Hi moms,any help on getting the new desert party reservations,I ring every time 180 day on the dot & never get a reservation. Can you offer any help at all? Coming 2016 thanks

    Hi, Jody! Don't despair! Both the new IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party and the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party have a different reservation time frame than most of the other experiences in Walt Disney World.  Unlike the majority of Disney Dining options, which offer a reservation window of 180 days, the Dessert Parties have a shorter one. Recently, my friend Danielle was able to make her reservations at the seemingly random 83 day mark, even though the online system wasn't yet showing availability. I would start calling for your reservations ninety days before the date you want to book; however, sometimes the Dessert Party reservations aren't accepted until as close as thirty days out. It takes persistence and patience. Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
