Review: Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party in Magic Kingdom

Who doesn’t love capping off a night at Disney World with a Fireworks spectacular? I know I do, whether I’m standing shoulder-to-shoulder with literally thousands of other guests in the Hub of Magic Kingdom or taking it all in from the balcony at California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

But there is one thing that can make a nighttime show even better…

Desserts at the Happily Ever After fireworks dessert party

And that’s DESSERT. Better yet, make that plural: DESSERTS.

That’s where Fireworks Viewing Parties come in! At present Disney is offering the Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party at Hollywood Studios, and the Frozen Ever After Dessert Party at Epcot, which pairs desserts and a ride on the Frozen Ever After attraction with a showing of IllumiNations.

But on my last trip, I booked what might be the highest in demand of them all: the Happily Ever After Dessert Party (technically named the Fireworks Dessert Party) at Magic Kingdom. [Read more…]

Are you familiar the Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party? Even if you haven’t personally attended one, you may already be aware that Magic Kingdom guests can reserve a party that offers a specific spot for viewing the park’s nighttime fireworks spectacular, Wishes, while being treated to a dessert buffet at Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant.

Review: New Menu at Tomorrowland Terrace in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom

We’re excited to bring you new menu items at an open-every-once-in-a-while favorite — Tomorrowland Terrace at Disney’s Magic Kingdom!

This counter-service restaurant is open seasonally during the busiest times, so you might not have eaten here; but we’re sure you’ve passed by it on your shortcut from Main Street to Tomorrowland!

We love this outdoor restaurant for its ample, covered seating and menu that can please any crowd. The menu has always been a mixture of hard-to-find counter-service dishes (like pasta!) and classic American items that will make even the pickiest eaters happy.

Sadly, the pasta is gone, but we’re happy to report that the new items keep the balance of ordinary and out of this world!

Entering Tomorrowland Terrace!

Since we don’t get to talk about Tomorrowland Terrace often, let’s explore the location a little more…

Review: Disneyland’s Tomorrowland Terrace

UPDATE: Please note that the Tomorrowland Terrace has been redesigned; this location is now the Galactic Grill serving Star Wars-themed foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 

Greetings from THE FUTURE!!

Tomorrowland’s version of the Future, that is! We’re grabbing a quick bite at Disneyland’s Tomorrowland Terrace (not to be confused with Disney World’s  seasonally open Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant). Would you believe I’ve never reviewed this spot for the blog before? Well, my recent trip out west for the kickoff of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration finally gave me an opportunity to change that. So, let’s blast off!

Atmosphere

The setup at Tomorrowland Terrace is fairly simple. It’s an outdoor spot, primarily, though the ordering area and a fair amount of seating are covered by an overhang.
