Just confirmed a rumor with Disney Dining that the Wishes Dessert party has been extended through January 2, 2010!

Wishes Dessert Party Extended Through October, 2009

I was told that in November and December, the party will only be held Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Not sure if I’d bet on that, though… . As always, you can book 90 days in advance.

Thanks to reader Psg42 for the tip!

    so in december they will only have the deseart party during mvmcp??? thats not fair!!!!!

  2. I’m beginning to wonder if they are not taking reservation for parties of 1. I just tried to book the party for several nights in early November for just myself, after being told they had extended the event, and was told they had no availablity. The same thing happened when I had tried to book for this week’s trip a while back…

    I don’t understand having it during a party night…why would I spend more money that evening to watch Wishes from that spot? Plus, it would take up more of my “party” time. I know I wouldn’t do it!

  4. Shayne says:

    Aaauggghhh! We arrive on January 7th…here’s hoping they extend it at least one more time!

  5. Bet on it. I just called to make an ADR for the event and discovered that those are, in fact, the only days they are doing it. I can’t understand their logic behind not offering it on non-party nights.

    we just got back from our trip and we did this on our last night. it was worth it but be careful that you get there early enogh to stake out a good spot at the railing. the front desk gave us teh wrong time and by the time we go there space was limited. we got spots right next to where they were taking pictures and they kept asking us to move DURING the fireworks while they took pictures of people in front of the castle. definately put a damper on the event for me. how ever i spoke with the manager and he assured me that they would take steps to fix it in the future and that the photographer shouldn’t have been taking pics during the show. on the plus side you are FEET away from where Tink “zips” too! good luck and enjoy!

    I just tried to book this party for Tues. the week of Thanksgiving and was told it was not available. I am going to keep trying. I just can’t believe there is no availability.

    I just called last night to book the dessert party for Monday, Nov. 30. I called to reserve for 2 adults and was told the only time left open was 7:20pm. It had booked that fast from just being announced. The Mickey’s Christmas Party is not happening this night, so we do not need to worry about purhcasing separate tickets. My husband did do some research and found out that the dessert party is being limited to about 35 people. Apparently, they had been letting in up to 80 people per event, but the food would run out and the place was crowded. However, the price was increased to compensate for the smaller group of people.

  10. Disney emailed me a response to my comments about Dessert Buffet only being offered on selected days. They said that it is offered every night that Wishes is shown, and that it was happening on non-party nights.

    So I called Disney Dining again and this time I was able to book 7:20 PM for 12/16. Obivously something changed in the last week.

    Scott — Good to know Disney’s changed some things around to accommodate folks not going to the parties. Thanks for letting us know. –AJ

    I booked my reservations back in Sept for Dec 5th – a non party night. Keep trying


  13. […] Wonderful! The idea of having a space where you be apart from a crowd, and wait for fireworks (also known as sensory roulette among parents) was great. Even if we had to leave after the first BOOOOOM, and our “Ahhh” was a “WAAAHHHH”, we’d have some sugary carbs in our tummies. […]

    Can someone please tell me if you could see the Spectromagic parade at 9pm while you are eating dessert. thanks

  15. AJ says:

    Yep — you can see the parade, but at a distance.
