As you know, we were lucky enough to attend a Wishes Dessert Party while in Disney World a few weeks ago! It was a blast, and I highly recommend the experience to anyone who can snag a seat.

To be fair, there have been some negative reviews of the event. These included comments that the service felt rushed, they ran out of items quickly, and there was a long line to get into the actual seating area. I will add that there are several rows of assigned seating, and while we had a seat in the front row, I’m not sure I’d be as happy with the cost if we’d gotten a seat in the back.

During our party, we arrived late (therefore not having to deal with a line to get in), and found that desserts were replenished regularly. Perhaps Disney’s heard some of the complaints and made adjustments accordingly. For us, the show was wonderful, and the desserts were delicious.

Below, you can see photos of many of the desserts, along with labels of what they actually are.
