    Yes, it is a separate area located where the Sorcerers hat was, directly in front of the Chinese theater. I suggest being towards the back of the viewing area. But if they follow the current SWaGS pattern, there will not be any conventional high fireworks. If it's just the low altitude type from behind the theater, viewing them is no longer an issue.

    @FastPasser.

    I am kinda scared to ask........ But, are you still on the fence with regards to retirement? I know many here are/were hoping that Disney woke/wake up and realized it would be a mistake to "let" you leave.

    We plan on having a late lunch. There are many non desert items on the menu so we decided not to have a dinner reservation.

    Thanks for your concern, but I was never on the fence, it was just a matter of when. With the Union accepting Disney's offer, I can now set a tentative date. I'm planning to wrap it up at the end of this month. But I'll still be here and have many contacts inside.

    Sad to hear Disney is losing an awesome CM. Best wishes going forward. And selfishly I hope you continue to share via these boards.

    I will be looking for that "wreath" man on Thanksgiving at the JBJB.

    Sorry for a question that's probably a repeat about the viewing area-

    We did the dessert party 2 years ago and the viewing area was to the left facing the Chinese theater, behind the area reserved for those in wheelchairs/scooters. Has that changed?

    The dessert portion has tables and seats. The viewing area for the show does not. At least this is my understanding.

    There is a video in the first post that shows a lot of the food. (Not all of it, but most) There are a few vloggers out there that did the party as well that had good views of the food too.

    I'm planning a similar thing, just in reverse. My current schedule that afternoon is:
    1:10 Chefs de France with Candlelight Processional
    -hang around that area doing storytellers and Impressions de France, Voices of Liberty, etc.
    5:00 - Candlelight Processional; will probably line up at least an hour in advance because it is Neil Patrick Harris!
    Afterwards grab a snack at one of the food booths nearby
    Head to DHS
    6:30 JBJJ Dessert Party
    Dinner: after JBJJ. I'm staying at Boardwalk, so it may end up being Il Mulino Lounge or some other lounge/restaurant in the Crescent Lake area.

    I think this trip is definitely going to be interesting foodwise (and it's mostly solo so I get to do what I want when I want). Multiple times I will have dessert before dinner! Either from dessert party or just logistics!
