    Hi, I have tickets to the dessert party in the Garden Plaza at Magic Kingdom. Our tickets are before the fireworks, but I see that an after-party is also offered. Should I expect that the Garden Plaza will now have twice as many people in it?

    Hi Ashley and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I absolutely adore ending my day at Magic Kingdom Park with a Fireworks Dessert Party. I enjoyed the Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace but when they added the Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing I was completely sold. I love the desserts at the party with the added bonus of the fabulous view from the Plaza Garden. 

    Like you, I was a bit concerned when I learned of the Magic Kingdom After-Fireworks Party. The Plaza Garden doesn't seem that large at first glance. However, I have had a few friends who have attended since the After Party was added. My friends didn't feel more crowded than they had before the newer party was added. One group of friends did note they sat on the ground before the Happily Ever After fireworks show began but once it started they did all stand. While another party was added, I don't believe it made the number of people in the Plaza Garden unbearable. My friends still felt they had more room than when they watched the fireworks from Main Street, U.S.A.
