    What is the Wishes dessert party? I was reading one of the other questions and saw this.

    Hi Pamela,

    The Wishes Dessert Party is the best way to watch the fireworks at the MK! I last attended it in April & loved it! You can kick back with an AMAZING view of the fireworks & enjoy some incredible desserts.

    The party begins 1 hour prior to the fireworks & is held on the Tomorrowland Terrace. You get a comfortable seat to watch the fireworks. You aren't among the sea of people in the MK so you don't have to fight for a good spot 2+ hours before the fireworks. A CM at the WDP told me they limit attendees to ~200 guests so there is plenty of elbow room. None of the tables were right up next to the wall & we were free to move our chairs or stand near the outer wall if we wanted. I also loved (especially with kids) that there is a restroom nearby.

    The desserts are deeee-lish! You get to try as many as you want so eat an early dinner & come hungry. They break down the buffet as the fireworks start so be sure to get all you want before settling in for an incredible view of Wishes. Tinker Bell flies right towards you & goes over your head for her landing. There will be a PhotoPass Photographer on hand that will take some great pics of your family w/ Cinderella Castle in the background. Our party ranged in ages 4 - 71 & we all love it.

    Reservations can be made beginning 180 days prior to your visit by calling 407-WDW-DINE. Prices are seasonal & can range from $21.99 (ages 10 & up) & $11.99 (ages 3 - 9) to $27.68 (ages 10 & up) to $14.90 (ages 3 - 9) - always subject to change without notice.  MK Theme Park admission is also required & is not included in the price of the dessert party. 

    If MK doesn't close immediately following the fireworks, you have easy access to Tomorrowland. I'd suggest heading in that direction while the masses head towards the turnstiles. Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
