Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be another way to enjoy fireworks at Walt Disney World. Guess what? There is!
You already know about the Wishes Dessert Party at Magic Kingdom as well as the Ferrytale Wishes Fireworks Dessert Cruise. And you can’t forget fireworks viewing from great venues like California Grill, ‘Ohana, and Narcoossee’s.
But now, you can party in Mad Hatter fashion at the Grand Floridian, thanks to Gone Mad Wishes Fireworks Party! The pop up party takes place Wednesdays from 8:30 to 10:30PM, in the area just outside Gasparilla Island Grill.
Look for interactive fun aplenty, with a DJ spinning tunes while Cast Members encourage dancing. There are also some fun props on standby for photo ops. And in a departure from most other Disney Fireworks Parties, no reservations are required, and the event is free. Yep! You read that right. FREE.
Now, there are plenty of treats and drinks that you can purchase. Think of this gathering as something similar to those pool parties that happen during afternoons around the resort.
But there is one big, bold difference: this is an Alice in Wonderland-themed party. And so you’d expect things to be a little wonky and a little wild. In addition to crazy themed eats and drinks, like Cheshire Cat Cupcakes and Green Potion Punch, seating is guaranteed to make you smile as well. Because they’ve furnished the party with chairs and ottomans from the Mad T Party at Disneyland!
If you’re looking to join in on the fun, remember to head to the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa on Wednesdays from 8:30 until 10:30. Reservations are not required, and anyone can join in — you don’t have to be staying at the Grand Floridian to take part.
But just a word of caution: call ahead and to make sure that the party is taking place during your visit. At this time, there is no indication how long the parties will continue to take place.
