    All booked and super excited! We did the tri-fecta of dessert parties last year and had so much fun. The sweet gal in charge asked us how we were liking everything especially since this one and the Frozen party were held inside because of the cold something to keep in mind. I have to say CM's at these parties are just wonderful...wink wink.

    My confirmation and all that I have read about this year’s party does not mention an ornament.

    On Friday November 30 my tickets show the JBJB dessert party starts at 7 pm.......the actual show starts at 8:30 pm. That's a whole lot of eating! Does that sound right?

    Not really. You'll be required to leave the party area for the viewing area around 8 pm.

    So many decisions.. I am thinking about adding this one to our plan to finish up with something to get us in the Christmas spirit before we head home. Also to save DH from having to stand for a long time in a large crowd. Are you still jammed in like sardines in the area they have reserved for the party?

    @FastPasser.

    I saw some pics of the Illuminations dessert party area. Do you have any pics of the JBJB viewing area?

    Like tlcdoula, I am curious to how "crowded" the dessert party viewing area is.


    Thanks in advance.

    Would it be reasonable to have a table service meal around 3pm and then the dessert party at 7pm? It's just us 2 adults so we'll manage either way but I'd prefer to be hungry and not yet HANGRY by the time it starts!

    I have a dinner ADR at Il Mulino at 5pm before our dessert party. I think we will just be getting apps for dinner and definitely no dessert! I've contemplated canceling dinner but I think we'll need a little something in our stomachs!

    Yes. This is what we've done for the dessert parties we've been to, and it has worked out perfectly. For us, we wanted to be hungry enough that we'd get our money's worth, but not be so famished beforehand that we felt sick. The timing you've proposed worked out really well for us. :)

    I guess it depends on what you feel being jammed in like sardines is. IMO, it's never been that. The area is the same area that was used last year for the party.
    No pics. It's meant to be a standing viewing area and other than being a little too close for those standing in the front, it's fine.
    The check in podium is normally set up 45 minutes to an hour before the advertised start time, but if it were me I wouldn't check in more than 20 minutes or so early.

    The viewing area is separate from the general viewing area correct? If so, where is the area with respect to the "open" general area. And, is there a better area within it to view both the show projections & fireworks? I have read that some say that the area is a little close to fully view both. Again like always, thanks for your response and opinions.
