And it’s even better when we can enjoy some of our favorite Disney eats and VIP viewing of Epcot’s nighttime spectacular, Illuminations!

And that’s not all. The menu will include some epic snacks from all over Walt Disney World!

We are still fine tuning the menu, but you can be assured that guests will have their pick of an all-you-care-to-enjoy spread of DFB Favorites! These aren’t your garden variety mini-pastries. They’re snacks you know and love, like Carrot Cake Cookies from The Writer’s Stop in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

We’ll have School Bread from Epcot’s Kringla Bakeri og Kafe, of course!

    I am new to the blog (and I love it!) and was wondering, where do the tickets go on sale? Do you call Disney World as you would to make reservations or is there another place you call/log on to buy them?

  2. Hannah says

    OH…disappointment! We will be there just before and just after. We will be on the Disney Dream at that time. We will have a toast to everyone that gets to make it. Sounds like a great time. I am on this Blog everyday…a few times a day. Thanks for giving so much great information and for the food pictures. Makes waiting for your trip more exciting.

  3. Tina says

    UGH! Same here… We’re coming next week, August 7th-12th. And then for our Annual Big Trip, October 26th-November 5th! WHY MUST THIS FINALLY BE HAPPENING AGAIN 12 DAYS BEFORE WE ARRIVE! :( So sad haha. It’s sure to be an awesome night to remember.

  4. says

    Erica and Tina — Oh NO! We’ll miss you guys! Send me your travel dates next year and we’ll work around ‘em!

    Hannah — You’ll have to celebrate on the ship for us!

    Carolyn — Can’t wait to host you again! Thanks for your support!

    Isela — We’ll have a link on the blog on Monday morning for ticket sales! Thanks for your support!

    This looks excellent! Will you have the menu tweaked and settled before the tickets actually go on sale? Love the DFB and all the Disney treats but $60 a person is hard to commit too without knowing all the wonderful choices :)


  6. Colleen Grace says

    DARN! I’ll be there 12 days later. I bet that’s awesome. Now that I know there is such a thing I’ll try checking before I make my reservations next year.

  7. RENEE says

    Do we need to have our own park admission? Or does the cost of the event exclude park admission?

  8. says

    Hayley — We won’t have the menu settled by Monday. Check this post to see what we’ve had in the past: http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/2013/04/30/review-dfb-snack-attack-illuminations-dessert-party-save-the-date-for-our-october-event/. Hope you can make it!

    Colleen Grace and Vicki — I’m so sorry we’ll miss you!

    Tammy — In the past, it’s sold out in one or two days. It really depends on how many people will be in WDW at that time who have interest. This year, we’re actually selling fewer tickets since they lowered the max number who can fit in the space. Good news as we’ll have a less packed atmosphere for our party, but definitely fewer tickets than before.

    Renee — The event cost does not include park admission. But you don’t need park admission to come to the event.

  9. PG says

    Why is it only one time? They should do it at least once a week so everyone can have a chance to attend.

  10. Patti says


    For all of you who will miss October 14–there is another dessert party you might be able to attend.

    This other dessert party is NOT the same, but it is fun, nonetheless. It is at Magic Kingdom and is called The Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party and is sponsored by Disney. It is offered at least weekly.

    The party goers have a reserved seat in the Terrace at Tomorrowland Terrace with a good view of the fireworks over the castle. The desserts are unlimited and varied. If it’s not too windy, Tink even flies RIGHT OVER YOUR HEAD!!!!

    The price last year was very reasonable–as I remember, it was $31.00 per person which does NOT include park admission, which is required.

    You can sign up for this event the same way you sign up for ADRs (advanced dining reservations) either on line or by phone. Reservations can be made 180 days out and do sell out quickly,m but because it is offered so frequently, you have a better chance of getting a ticket WHENEVER you are going to WDW.

    Patti :o))

  11. Deb. Curl says

    Sadly, this will be the first one I’ll miss. I’m going to WDW in November this year. Snack Attack is the best of all of the fireworks dessert parties!

  12. Jennifer says

    Please do this again on November 5, just before the last week of Food & Wine Festival! We need one during Jersey week in November!!!

  13. says

    Jennifer — Thanks for your interest in Snack Attack! We don’t have one planned for 2015, but we will potentially be having several events in 2016! Stay tuned!
