Whether you’re visiting Magic Kingdom, Epcot, or Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the nighttime fireworks spectaculars at Walt Disney World are simply amazing! Each of these three parks offers fireworks dessert parties where you can enjoy spectacular views, as well as, delicious treats.
Magic Kingdom offers three dessert parties, the Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace, the Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing, and the After Fireworks Dessert Party. Guests for the parties before the show will enjoy tasty treats such as chocolate covered strawberries, Disney character themed desserts, and ice cream at Tomorrowland Terrace. Beverage selections at the party include sparkling cider, signature lemonades, hot chocolate, coffee, and tea.
Guests viewing the fireworks from Tomorrowland Terrace will enjoy an amazing view of the show from their table. The view as Tinkerbell flies over this location is magical; in fact, Tomorrowland Terrace was my favorite viewing location for Wishes. I haven’t seen Happily Ever After from this location, but I’m sure the view is just as amazing as before.
Guests viewing Happily Ever After from the Plaza Garden viewing area are in for a treat. This garden viewing location has a spectacular view of the projections on Cinderella Castle. It should be noted, the Plaza Garden viewing area is standing room only. The number of guests for the dessert parties both before and after the fireworks will be limited to ensure each guests will have plenty of space and fantastic views of the show from the Plaza Garden.
Guests for the After Fireworks Dessert Party will enjoy treats inspired by the themed lands of the Magic Kingdom. Desserts will include Strawberry Tarts (Main Street U.S.A.), Pineapple Delights (Adventureland), S’mores Action Station (Frontierland), Ooey Gooey Toffee Cakes (Liberty Square), Macarons (Fantasyland), and a Cookie Table (Tomorrowland). Savory snacks including cheese cubes, spinach dip with crackers, and house-made mini eggrolls will also be served. Themed holiday treats will join the menu on July 3rd & 4th, as well as, select nights for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party.
The Frozen Ever After Dessert Party at World Showcase is a great way to end your day at Epcot. In addition to tasty treats and stunning fireworks views, this dessert party also includes a ride on the popular Frozen Ever After attraction in the Norway pavilion.
Guests at the dessert party will enjoy Frozen themed treats such as Kristoff’s Kransekake Almond Cookie, Elsa’s Blue Velvet Cupcakes, Olaf’s Warm Double Chocolate S’mores Pudding Cake, and Anna’s Warm Cottage Pudding with Salted Caramel Glaze. Additional treats include ice cream, berries, and much more. Beverage selections include “Frozen Heart” and other non-alcoholic beverages, summertime cocktails, beer, and wine.
