    I'm afraid I've moved to the passing lane. $50 in dessert times two makes it pretty silly. I can't even imagine $100 in desserts. :lol: We'll stick with the La Cava Margaritas. They are expensive enough, thanks.

    I'm thinking about trying this out on my solo trip. I wouldn't pay that much for a family. And as for standing, well shoot there is never anywhere to sit unless you stake out a place hours and hours early so that's not a concern for me

    I've had some nice times standing at illuminations dessert parties at italy and so on. I think the idea sounds quite nice
    "Dessert options include tiramisu from Italy, vanilla pot de crème from France, shortbread cookies from the United Kingdom, baklava from Morocco, sugar-dusted cronis (croissant doughnuts) with strawberry sauce from America, and a selection of delicious ice-cream treats. Also available for guests will be lemonade, coffee, teas, sparkling wine from Washington State and Prosecco from Italy."

    I'm not quite sure why I've been to so many but some how I've managed it. There's something great about having a bit of space to breathe when the lights go down rather than people wandering in and out of your line of sight and my personal hate, people putting kids up on their shoulders right in front of me grrrr

    I'm definitely going to try it " The menu will include the best sweets from several international pavilions, including tiramisu and Prosecco from Italy; Vanilla Pot de Creme from France; baklava from Morocco and much more."

    Sounds quite fun to me :) desserts from around the world, some sparkling wine, and a place to mill around before the show without thousands of other people bumping me and trying to get in front.

    Worth a try at least :)
