Magic Kingdom park visitors can attend the seasonal The Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party for an additional charge. This event takes place on select nights at the Tomorrowland Terrace near the Noodle Station and includes reserved viewing for Disney’s nighttime spectacular, “Wishes,” as well as a self-serve buffet.
The buffet is all you can eat and drink and will offer assorted fresh fruit, assorted tarts, cookies, cannoli, Tiramisu, cheesecake, cupcakes, mango shooter, brownies, rice crispy treats, crème brulee, chocolate truffles, and other sweet delights. Beverages include lemonade, raspberry lemonade, iced tea, cold milk, water, coffee, and hot teas (soda is not available). There will also be items for guests with special dietary needs–just ask a cast member for assistance.
Note: Beginning July 5, 2015, enhancements will be added to the Wishes Firesworks Dessert Party to create a more upscale experience, including reserved seating areas, table cloths and place settings. New food and beverage offerings will included, chocolate-dipped strawberries, chocolate mousse, ice cream, seasonal fruit and cheese, Disney character-themed cupcakes, sparkling cider, hot drinking chocolate and signature lemonades, and a sparkling cider toast as fireworks begin!
The Fireworks Dessert Party begins nightly one hour prior to “Wishes” (or other seasonal fireworks) and continues through the fireworks display with staggered seating times. Those who reserve the earliest get the best seating. Tables are assigned with name tags and a cast member will escort your party to the correct table after you sign in. The area seats approximately 170 people. Guests are given a wristband which allows them to leave the area to seek bathrooms and return. A PhotoPass photographer will be on hand to take pictures prior to the start of the fireworks. Once the fireworks begin, most guests line up along the terrace railing, as the balcony roof obstructs the view of those seated farther back. Guests are asked not to bring their chairs to the railing. Overall, the view is no-hassle, above average, and provides the perfect vantage point to see Tinker Bell fly from the castle and glide directly overhead.
Reservations are highly recommended. To make an advance reservation call (407) WDW-DINE or make Advance Dining Reservations online. While Disney says that you may book up to 180 days in advance, typically in the past, this event is scheduled no more than than 30 to 60 days out. Recently, however, Disney has begun making it available up to 6 months out. When dates do open, it’s generally an entire month at a time. Your seating time will be assigned when you make your reservation. The Fireworks Dessert Party can also be reserved through any Guest Relations, Resort Concierge or Table Service dining location.
