    We have tickets for the Fireworks Dessert Pre-Party at Disneyworld for our entire group over 3, but I’m unable to book for my 2 year old. There just isn’t an option. Do I just bring her with? Is there another way to reserve for her?

    Hi Jennifer!

    I'm so glad you stopped by planDisney with a question for us! Happily Ever After is my all-time favorite nighttime spectacular, and feasting on desserts and drinks before watching from a reserved viewing area is just about the best way I can think of to enjoy it. Before you know it you'll be standing on Main Street, U.S.A. preparing to take in the beautiful display over Cinderella Castle. Ready to begin? I'm happy to dish all the details.

    Guests who have reserved the Magic Kingdom Fireworks Dessert Parties: Pre-Party will get to sip and savor a variety of delectable bites at Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant before the show lights up the night sky. I attended a Fireworks Dessert: Post-Party a few years ago and really enjoyed the entire experience. The reserved area was such a great way to take in the show without worrying about saving a spot in the hours before. The dessert spread was delicious and plentiful, too! Be sure to feast on some chocolate-covered strawberries, if available, before you head to your spot in Plaza Garden. They are the perfect complement to a glass of sparkling wine or POG juice. Once you arrive in the reserved area, you'll have a great view of the castle projections and any pixie-dusted friends flying nearby, so keep your eyes on the skies! 

    Since your two-year-old does not need his or her own theme park ticket, they won't be charged to attend the Fireworks Dessert: Pre-Party with you. However, they do need to be accounted for as the Plaza Garden viewing area has a set capacity. I didn't see a clear way to do this online, but you sparked a dream I was meant to follow so I was prepared to find out. I did a little test run and selected a ticket for Ages 3-9, then chose my young nephew from my Family & Friends list. Though the system showed him as an infant, it still wanted to charge me for a child's ticket when I reached the checkout screen. This was not the result I hoped for, so I reached out to a Cast Member for more guidance.

    After a bit of tinkering, they were equally surprised to encounter the same issue. We both want to make sure your entire party gets to dive in with your hearts wide open and experience the show when you visit next month. The Cast Member advised calling 407-939-7765 for assistance as they continue to work a little magic on their end. I recommend having your existing confirmation numbers available so they can hopefully add your 2-year-old to your reservation without delay. I've also passed this less-than-magical technical glitch up the chain of command on my end. 

    Jennifer, I'm sorry I didn't have a clear resolution for you today, but I'm crossing my fingers a quick call will get you on your way. Please come back and see us again with any additional questions as you prepare for your visit. I'm wishing you plenty of magic and beautiful memories with your loved ones.

    Reach out and find your happily ever after,
