Have you ever been at Magic Kingdom and wondered why all the special seating was closed by Cinderella’s castle?  Or have seen a group of people standing in a roped off area at Epcot eating some tantalizing desserts?  Those are just two of the special firework dessert parties that are available to enjoy!

 

Disney offers the chance to watch their famous fireworks from some of the best locations within or around the parks.  You have the opportunity to make special reservations on select days for these dessert parties 180 days before your vacation begins.  So what makes them so special?  Well, let’s take a look at each one a little bit closer.

 

At Magic Kingdom, there are actually two different parties to choose from.  Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace and Ferrytale Wishes: A Fireworks Dessert Cruise.  While you’ll be viewing the same firework show over Cinderella’s Castle, where you will be viewing them from will be quite different.  At the Tomorrowland Terrace’s party, you’ll have a reserved table and viewing area to share with other guests. This is just before you enter Tomorrowland.  You’ll be seated at your table and will be able to feast on all of the delicious mini desserts, ice cream and yummy non-alcoholic beverages.  Even though everyone has an assigned table, you can always stand up and get closer to the magic within the viewing area.  There’s plenty of room to move around!  And there’s a special guest that flies overhead to start the fireworks so have your camera ready!

 

Fireworks Dessert PartyThe other party at Magic Kingdom is Ferrytale Wishes. {Read an entire blog post about this party, HERE!}  This is an exclusive dessert party and magical cruise aboard the iconic General Joe Potter ferryboat.  You’ll be wishing upon a night full of stars, fireworks and magic as you sail the Seven Seas Lagoon in Style.  Here you’ll enjoy some decadent sweets, specialty beverages (with and without alcohol-in a special glow glass!) and one-of-a-kind views of Disney’s famous fireworks above Magic Kingdom.

 

Jumping over to Epcot, you can reserve your spot at IllumiNations Sparkling Dessert Party.  If fireworks with an international flair is something more your style, then this surely won’t disappoint! Located close to Mexico in World Showcase, you’ll enter your special viewing area that will have scattered tall top tables (without seating) along with your choice of amazing desserts from around World Showcase.  There will even be a refreshing assortment of beverages, including sparkling wines.

Lastly, for an out of this world firework dessert party with a Star Wars theme, check out Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party! This is located in Disney’s Hollywood! The party is directly located in front of Star Wars Launch Bay in Animation Courtyard. You’ll be able to stand and feast on some Star Wars themed treats and specialty drinks, including alcoholic beverage options.  Nibble on Darth Vader cupcakes as you’re escorted to a special VIP area to watch the enthralling firework display.

 

You won’t be disappointed, regardless of which one you pick.  It’s a great opportunity to reserve your spot for some of the best locations to view the fireworks and enjoy some delectable treats and drinks.  Adding these to your vacation is like adding an extra bit of pixie dust!
