Any vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida is not complete without a visit to the Magic Kingdom. This is a theme park where imagination and make believe come to life, and just about every guest wants to check out the fireworks and show at the end of the night. For right now the show is called “Wishes,” and involves a tremendous amount of high-tech hocus pocus. However, instead of jockeying for a viewing position for the big show, guests can book a reservation at the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party.
Crowds are a part of life on a Disney vacation, but at this special event the competition for viewing spots is not nearly as hectic as being in the general guest population. According to the Disney website, the dessert party kicks off about an hour before the show starts, this gives everybody in the party the chance to visit the buffet of sweets and beverages. Everything from coffee to lemonade to ice cream to apple tarts can be found on the Tomorrowland Terrace, which is offers a nice view of the castle and surrounding landscape. Better yet, the whole thing is under cover, which means ample protection from those pesky Florida showers that pop up from time to time.
According to WDWMagic, the cost of enjoying the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party rings in at $21.99 for adults and $11.99 for children. The event is prepaid with a cancellation policy, which means planning in advance is a requirement. While the event as billed as preferred seating for the fireworks and show, everyone should be prepared to get a good standing spot by the railing for the best possible view. In addition, attendees should take a few minutes on the ample trips to enjoy the sweets to scope out the best possible location for their party. Even though the event is reservations only and the amount of people let in is relatively small, there is a bit of a rush once the show starts.
The rewards for taking an hour or two out of your vacation to enjoy some great desserts and get a break from the usual crowd trying to take in an excellent fireworks presentation and show greatly outweigh the costs associated with the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party. Reservations are required and space fills up quickly, so interested guests should plan a few months ahead on attending. In addition, anyone lucky enough to score reservations should plan on getting to the terrace area about thirty or forty minutes prior to the designated time, because the line to check in can get long.
