A Spectacular Evening in the Sky: Magic Kingdom's Fireworks Dessert Parties

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

When it comes to magical experiences at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, there's one event that stands out for both its sweetness and splendor—the Fireworks Dessert Party. This enchanting celebration combines delectable treats with an unparalleled view of the park's famous fireworks display.


Back in August, the owners and mentor team of Coasters & Castles Travel attended the Post-Party. In this blog post, we'll delve into the details of this magical event, covering everything from the cost to what's included, the location within the park, and why it's an experience worth considering.


The Details

Cost: The Fireworks Dessert Party is apart of the Enchanting Extras Collection and is a separately ticketed event. The cost varies depending on the type of seating you choose.


  • Plaza Garden Viewing: This option is more affordable, offering a reserved standing area in the Plaza Garden or commonly called The Hub with a clear view of Cinderella Castle. You can choose from either the Pre-Party or the Post-Party. Prices range between $99 to $109 for ages 10 and up and $59 for ages 3-9.

  • Tomorrowland Terrace Viewing: Guests can enjoy a more exclusive experience with reserved table seating at Tomorrowland Terrace, called Sweets & Seats. From here you will watch the fireworks and eat your desserts allowing you a guaranteed seat the entire time plus a great view. Prices range between $199-$129 for ages 10 and up or $75 for ages 3-9.


What's Included:

The highlight of the Fireworks Dessert Party is undoubtedly the array of scrumptious treats that await guests. From mouth-watering desserts to savory snacks, the menu typically includes an assortment of cakes, cookies, fruits (including chocolate covered strawberries), and beverages including coffee, hot chocolate, juices and an assortment of beer, wine and champagne for guests ages 21 and older. Attendees can indulge in unlimited servings, making it a paradise for those with a sweet tooth. Additionally, the Tomorrowland Terrace option often includes a selection of savory bites as well.




Location within the Park: The event takes place in the heart of Magic Kingdom. Depending on your chosen package, you'll either find yourself in the Plaza Garden or seated at Tomorrowland Terrace. Both locations are strategically positioned to provide an unobstructed view of Cinderella Castle, ensuring you have a front-row seat to the breathtaking fireworks display.


For the pre and post parties you will be shown to a reserved area in the hub which is exclusive for party guests. Away from the pushing and spot holding of the rest of the guests in front of the castle. The earlier you arrive, the better the spot so be sure to plan accordingly. Remember it's for standing only so while you may be able to sit on the grass you may not have a good view so you'll likely have to stand during the show.



Is It Worth It?

That decision is really based on your family and your priorities. If the fireworks are a MUST for your group or you really HATE wresting with crowds and dedicating lots of time to getting a good spot then I recommend it. It's not something I would do every time I visited, but as a special treat it's a great idea.

Pros:

  1. Prime Viewing Location: The reserved viewing areas offer an excellent vantage point for the fireworks, allowing guests to witness the show without the hassle of finding a spot in the crowded park or waiting hours for it.

  2. Delicious Treats: The delectable assortment of desserts and snacks is a major draw for those looking to satisfy their sweet cravings while enjoying the spectacle. They also don't serve alcohol in many locations in Magic Kingdom so it's great to take a little of the edge off after a long, hot day!

  3. Exclusive Atmosphere: The limited number of guests in the reserved areas creates a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere, enhancing the overall experience. Even though the areas are shared, it's not as crowded as watching outside with the rest of the guests. There is still plenty of space to feel comfortable.

Cons:

  1. Cost: While the experience is undoubtedly magical, the price tag might be a bit steep for some visitors, especially if they are on a tight budget and have a larger family.

  2. Weather Dependency: As the event is outdoors, the experience may be affected by weather conditions. Rain or unfavorable weather might impact the enjoyment of the evening.

  3. Standing Room: The biggest con with the pre and post parties are that they share the same area for the show. So you will need to arrive early to get a good spot. If someone in your party has a wheelchair or scooter you will be shown to the front section where they will include your entire group. If you position yourself right and there is no one directly in front of you, you may be able to sit. However if you are towards the back you'll likely have to stand to get a good view. And if you are doing the pre party you may have to cut some dessert time short to get a good spot.



For those seeking a magical evening filled with sweetness and spectacle, the Fireworks Dessert Party at Magic Kingdom is a captivating option. While the cost may be a consideration, the exclusive atmosphere, prime viewing locations, and mouth-watering treats make it a worthwhile splurge for many Disney vacations.


Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or just want to add a touch of magic to your Disney experience, this event promises an unforgettable night under the stars.
