Lately, it seems like Walt Disney World and the phrase “price changes” are attached at the hip. From increasing ticket prices to raising the cost of Annual Passes, the Most Magical Place on Earth unveiled so many price changes last year that it’s honestly hard to keep track of them all!
A new viewing opportunity to enjoy Magic Kingdom’s Wishes nighttime fireworks spectacular is making its debut at the Grand Floridian’s Narcoossee’s.
Current view-and-dine parties for Wishes include the Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party at Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland Terrace, and Ferrytale Wishes: A Fireworks Dessert Cruise. Narcoossee’s is joining the line up by hosting a new Wishes Dessert Party at the Grand Floridian back dock (so during party time, Advance Dining Reservations for Narcoossee’s standard dinner hours of 5:30 to 10:00 pm remain available).
Taking place every Friday — currently available through the month of March — the all-inclusive price of $62.43 per person will include a variety of signature desserts and a selection of wine and cocktails, along with beer, coffee, or tea. The party will begin 30 minutes prior to the evening’s showing of Wishes.
Interested guests may learn more and reserve this experience by dialing (407) 824-1400 (please note that booking via the Walt Disney World website is not available). [Read more…]
