    Hello Moms- We have reservations for the illuminations dessert party in December. It says that the show doesn't start until 10:30- what time do we need to arrive for the party? Thanks for all of your help!

    Hi Jeannette!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question. The IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party is a wonderful way to end a magical day at Epcot. I checked the online calendar for December and it looks like all times listed are for 8:30 p.m. If your reservation time is 8:30 p.m., you can plan to arrive a little before then.

    IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth may be changed or canceled without prior notice due to inclement weather. The IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party venue is uncovered. According to the Know Before You Go section on the IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party page, "In the event of inclement weather, the dessert portion will take place at an alternate indoor location. A Cast Member will direct you to the alternate location at the time of check-in. You may call (407) 560-7377 after 5:30 PM for recorded weather information."

    I hope you and your family enjoy the IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party. Please let us know if we can help answer any other questions regarding your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    Have a magical day!
