Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party

I have never done it on any of the previous trips. Is it really the best place to watch wishes? Is it worth 35.00 for dessert especially since I am going to have dessert for lunch and dinner for 10 days straight. Not to mention my cupcake crawl. Can you say diabetes. laugh
Seriously is it worth it? 35.00 for dessert? It says Use my dining plan to book pre-paid reservations. What is that? What is with the reservation times? You can only stay for a certain period of time. Help please.

I've never done it myself and have wondered if it was worth it. I don't believe that you can use the dining plan for this. That option is for making reservations at the dinner shows (HDDMR or Spirit of Aloha) or CRT where you are required to pay up front. If you have the dining plan, you select this option. You'll still to add a credit card to hold the ADR but you won't be charged for it.

We did it last year, and it was absolutely fantastic. I think it's a great vantage point for Wishes, and Tinkerbelle lands right above you. You can see the top half of the electric light parade.

IMHO, having a reserved spot for Wishes makes the price worth it. My SO and I don't particularly like jostling for space or taking an hour or two away from enjoying the MK to stake out a patch of sidewalk. We probably wont ever try to enjoy Wishes again without doing the dessert buffet.

The desserts are very good, and seem like the point of it all, but to me they're more of an added bonus. There's something for everyone. The desserts are all very small, so you can try quite a variety before you get full. There is also fruit, and coffee, tea, milk, etc. They didn't run out of anything. There is also a photo pass photographer at the venue, who got some great photos of my family.

You have to reserve and pay for this in advance. Are you looking to do it online? If so, use your reservation number as if you are making an ADR, so they know who you are; be prepared with a credit card to pay the cost.
If I remember right, you arrive an hour before Wishes. No need to arrive or stand in line before the start of the party, because all tables are reserved and a host will seat you. There is plenty of time to get pictures and enjoy the desserts before the show. Some people stayed at their tables and others moved to the railing right before Wishes. They left all the desserts out, and you could dish up again after the show, but we took off. I'm not sure what timenlimit you're referring to. Hope my observations were helpful.

Example of the time is Dec 8th Wishes is at 10pm. The reservation times are 7:00,8:00, 8:30 or 9:00. The choice of times makes it sound like they are turning over tables. Also why would they list 7 pm as a reservation time if the fireworks are not until 10pm.

See now I personally didn't think it was worth it, I didn't really like many of the desserts at all - I hate American chocolate and most were chocolate based, and the ones that weren't didn't taste that great either!

We don't go in peak season but even so, we never struggle with where to watch wishes, and never have to worry about getting a good view.

I wouldn't do it again, however I am glad that we did it - I had read so much about it that it feels good to have checked it off my Disney bucket list. Smile

Oic, yes, that is confusing. Im certain there's just one dessert buffet. Just pick a time to see if they have availability for the night you want. They probably have a varying choice of times on the website based on the showing time of Wishes on different nights. You know, you pick a time, and then the next screen says, we don't have that time, but we searched from this hour to that hour and we have this time... See what I'm saying? Or, the page will come up that says we searched from this hour to that hour and there are no times available. LOL, that's what you dont want to see!
