    Hi all,

    We are thinking of going to this party, just wondering if others have been and could let us know if it is any good?

    Well you don't have to worry about where you're watching from and the view is much better than I thought it would be!

    The food/drink well, really nice chocolaty treats and things but not much more than that really.

    Still all in all, worth doing once I think :D

    The party begins one hour prior to the start of Wishes.

    The cost is about $25 for adults

    I have been twice now and really enjoyed it both times, I'm not a massive fan of the desserts there because they are mainly of the very sickly sweet variety with that strange artificial cream that disney seems to use on everything but they did have ice cream on our visit last year which was nice. It's great to have a seat and wait for the fireworks to start and the view is very good from there, if that was going to be my only MK day though I wouldn't do the party as you can't watch the Main Street Electrical parade properly from there and the Magic the Memories and You show is definitely best viewed from right in front of the castle. :yes:

    We haven't done it yet, but I'm hoping to book it one night when we are over there. Chris doesn't like a lot of sweet things, but I can eat for both of us :lol:

    Do you have to leave straight after the fireworks or do they let you stay for longer?

    From general review it seems that you can hang around afterward and stuff your face more with left overs!!! :mental:

    I liked it for the view but I was put off by the people who make it their mission to eat as much as possible. :unsure:

    I think the best thing to do for this event would be for servers to put a selection of desserts on the table so you don't have the scrum at the buffet.

    yeah I agree with that.

    The first time we went, I waited politely for the women (mainly) who were at the dessert buffet but I soon realised that I was never going to get anything that way! In the end I had to just do a few excuse me's and stand there almost blocking the people who kept trying to barge me out the way or take things from right in front of me for their plate.

    I heard a table of hardened Disney women (so to speak :lol: ) talking about how much they'd got this time around and when I looked over, they were taking photos of their "haul".

    So it really is a competition for some folks to grab as much as they can and that's a pain.

    I don't know that it's that bad every time. The first time we went it was quite sedate and pleasant, I guess it depends who your fellow diners are ;-) I got the feeling the last couple of times that large groups had booked and it was that "get up altogether" thing going on...

    Well the easiest solution is for you to come with me to help me get to the chocolate desserts :lol: :lol:

    I'm more than happy to do that but anyone in between me and chocolate is very much in danger :lol:
