Feature: Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party

Brent Basden in the area manager who oversees the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station, and was kind enough to join Mark for a conversation on November 13.

The Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party runs most nights at the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station, taking up the lower two levels of the establishment. Check-in for the party starts about an hour before the start of the fireworks at a podium on the Main Street side of the Noodle Station. Seating times are staggered to allow a better, less crowded experience for all. Table locations are pre-determined by Disney, and placecards are set for each guest. Just before the fireworks start, those seated away from the railing are invited to move up to the railing to enjoy the show.

The cost for the dessert party is $21.99 plus tax for adults and $11.99 plus tax for children ages 3-9. The cost for the dinner and dessert party on New Year's Eve will be $139.99 plus tax for adults and $69.99 plus tax for children ages 3-9. The regular dessert parties on December 30 and 31 will cost $35.99 plus tax for adults and $19.99 plus tax for children ages 3-9. You can make your reservations for any of the parties by calling 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463). Some shows do sell out, but seating is often available right up until the time of the party.

There's more information about the parties on December 30 and 31 on the Disney Parks Blog.

The dessert party is currently scheduled through January 2, and expects to reopen after some dining room refurbishments in late March. The party has not yet been made permanent, but will continue to be extended while Disney continues to fine-tune the offering.
