    The big news here though comes in the fine print (directly from the Disney site)…

    “Seating will be available at the dessert party on a first-come, first-served basis.”

    … previously (for the Happy HalloWishes Dessert Party and the “normal” dessert party), there had been little name cards on the tables and you had a reserved seat. The “seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.” fine print has now been added to the Happy HalloWishes Dessert Party package as well.

    Now???? I can see a mad dash happening from the parade viewing to the party location… so you can be the first in line… so you can sit down. Or maybe if you really want a seat, you miss the premium parade viewing entirely and just get in the “line for a chair” as early as possible? Just how may guests are going to be packed into the already small dessert party space? Are we going to see premium overflow dessert party standing in the castle courtyard area (like what’s currently available for same-day purchase guests at the normal Wishes Dessert Party)?

    I’m fine with the extra cost add-ons. I love premium events. But mulling around with a plate of desserts and not having a place to go unless I mega-plan and rush here, rush there, or getting one person in our party to miss the parade and stand in the dessert party line and then hold a table and chairs for everyone else in our party so we can all be together, (because you know… “family” ) … that all doesn’t feel “premium” to me anymore.

    Boy, I love Disney World more than anyone, BUT this extra extras is getting a little wild. I’ll be quite happy to enjoy the party and pick out a treat or two on my own.

  3. Sarah says

    I agree with you mealtrip. For the money people are paying for these events, they should at least come with a place to sit and relax. It always amazes me that a good chunk of these events come with limited or no seating.

  4. Frank says

    Speaking of sitting and relaxing, if Disney Co is reading any of this, please provide additional places to put our food during the Food and Wine!!! Tables, standing or sitting, I don’t really care.. I actually do, but at this point, I’d settle for standing tables. It’s such a pain to have a nice drink and food boat and no where to put them down and enjoy!!!
    Thx.

    So, I sort of have questions about this. This year, I will be going to the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for the first time. That was expensive but a lot of people have said it was great so, we bought tickets. It’s not really clear to me what all there is to do at one of these parties so, I’m not really sure what the best uses of my time are.

    We will be a group of 5 adults and we don’t care at all about meeting characters. I kind of feel like maybe I would be missing out on other stuff at the party if I paid extra to go to this dessert party. I’m a little confused about these events. Has anybody been who could tell me more about what each of these things are like and whether this is a good way to use the time?

    So…you pay for your daily entry, then you pay for the MVMCP, then you get the privalege to pay again to have a cupcake, stand around with hundreds of others with limited seating…what a deal! Think US is seeming more attractive…

  7. Sarah says

    Hi Rebecca! My family and I went to the Christmas party a few years back. Like you, we were not that interested in meeting characters. During the party, you have the opportunity to see the parade (the same one that runs during the day) and a special fireworks show. There are additional decorations, and there are places giving out free cookies and hot cocoa. It also snows on Main Street. One of the biggest draws for the parties though, is lower waits for rides. There are a limited number of tickets sold, and no one returning with Fastpasses, so lines are shorter and move quicker.

    As far as time, the dessert party may not be a bad use of it if you are determined to see the parade and fireworks while there. I know we lost a good couple of hours on those things between finding good spots on Main Street and watching the events themselves. If you’re more excited about riding as many rides as possible (and most of them are open), you may want to skip it. Whether the extra money is worth it will have to be your call.

  8. Sandra G says

    Rebecca, there is plenty to do without adding this dessert party. Special shows, character meets, roving musicians, fireworks, shorter lines for popular rides, free cocoa and cookies, special merchandise (to buy) and a special holiday parade that is different from the regular parade – until after the parties end, at which point you could see it as part of your regular admission.

    We attended the Fireworks party the first year it was available and enjoyed it, but it cost the same for three of us as they are charging for one person for this one. Same type of foods–and we had guaranteed seats. So while I’ll be taking my son to the party, we’ll skip the extra fees, have a quick service meal if we get hungry, and hit the freebies.

  9. Rebecca says

    Thanks Sandra and Sarah! That definitely helps. I think we’ll probably skip the dessert party this year but, keep it in mind for future trips. If there were guaranteed seating, we might go for it so my parents would know that they could sit down and still get a good view of everything. Without a guaranteed place for them to sit down, I think they’re going to be more interested in exploring the festivities, since it’s our first time doing MVMCP. Thanks again for all the info!
