    Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party says it starts 1 hr before the fireworks so should I book 1 hr before the start time of 1/2 before the start time to allow us to finish during the show? Also, can you really see and get good pictures sitting?

    Hey there Melissa!  I'm glad to hear that you are considering Tommorowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party, the desserts are fabulous and watching Tinkerbell fly over you is definitely a magical treat.  The dessert party has become very popular and can become crowded during certain times of the year, so I like to make my reservation 1 hour before the start of Wishes.  Upon entering you will receive a wristband so if you need to leave for any reason you will have no problem returning.  I prefer to have plenty of time to purvey the selection of desserts, find my seat and stake a good spot at the railing if needed.  
    The dessert party offers some fabulous views of Cinderella Castle, although you will be viewing from the side of the castle, it is still a spectacular view.  Tables are preassigned and upon entering you will see a place card with the name&size of your party.  All of the tables offer a really pretty view, but if your table is located toward the back I would find a spot at the railing before the start of Wishes.  The view from the back makes it hard to see the top of the castle and some of the fireworks.  I will go ahead and warn you that most guests will stand at the railing just before the show starts.  I wasn't aware of it the first time so I was surprised when everyone started hovering around the railing, almost no one was at their table during the actual show.  It is definitely a wonderful experience and would do it again in a second, but it just helps to know what to expect before arriving.  I would be thrilled to answer any more questions you may have Melissa.

    Have a magical Vacation!
