After Fireworks Dessert Party (Started 5/28/2018) Disney Website Link: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/e...owland-terrace-after-fireworks-dessert-party/ $69 adults / $41 children 3-9 Check-in 1 hour before fireworks Description of After Fireworks Event From Disney Provided to CMs (updated as of 5/22): Because of the popularity of the Fireworks Dessert Party at Magic Kingdom Park, we are expanding the experience starting May 28 so more Guests will be able to enjoy it. During the After Fireworks Dessert Party, Guests will delight in prime fireworks views from the Plaza Garden, followed by a delectable dessert party at Tomorrowland Terrace once the show has concluded. There is a limited number of guest reservations for the new After Fireworks Dessert Party to ensure that everyone viewing fireworks from the Plaza Garden area will have plenty of space and great views that we know are so important. New Menu Debuted at All Parties 5/28/2018: An enhanced menu will also debut May 28 at all Magic Kingdom dessert parties, which includes additional savory snacks such as spinach dip and house-made mini eggrolls, as well as the popular Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake from Liberty Tree Tavern. HEA Dessert Party Info (original post from May 2017)I did the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing this past Saturday, the second night of the new Happily Ever After fireworks show. I see a lot of posts around here asking about the two MK dessert party versions, so I figured with the new show this may be helpful/timely for folks. Disney currently offers two 'versions' of the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party... this is what Disney calls them on their website, also links: Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/d...d-terrace-fireworks-dessert-party-plaza-view/ Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/dining/magic-kingdom/tomorrowland-terrace-fireworks-dessert-party/ Despite sharing the Tomorrowland Terrace name, they are really two totally separate events with no overlap whatsoever. For the Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace, you are given a table along the railing of the lower area of Tomorrowland Terrace where you sit, eat, and stay for the fireworks. For the Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing, you start with desserts in the upper Tomorrowland Terrace area, and then are escorted (at your leisure) to the Plaza Garden View area to watch the fireworks. To help visualize the Plaza Garden Viewing area, here are some pics I took earlier in the day. Disney was quick with the sign switch-over. Looking west towards Main Street. The Plaza restaurant is on the left, hub/castle to the right. The view from the "right" side of the Plaza Viewing area. When I say "right" I mean as if you are looking at the castle, if that makes sense. A panorama shot... The following two photos were taken closer to show time, this one at 8:08PM. You can see a few folks already grabbing a spot. Moving to the Plaza Viewing area this early seems overkill to me, unless you're very passionate about your spot. And this one at 8:10PM, looking back the other direction. It's like a calm oasis in a growing sea of humanity!
