I absolutely adore the evening spectaculars at each of the Disney Parks and the new Happily Ever After Fireworks at the Magic Kingdom is one of my all-time favorites. It is understandably very popular, and the best way to get a great viewing spot is by booking the Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party. You not only get a wonderful spot to see the show, but you can also indulge in some fantastic treats.
The Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party is located at the Tomorrowland Terrace. You can purchase a spot with seating at the Terrace, or for a few dollars less, a reserved garden viewing spot in front of the castle (no seating). For either package, the treats are located at the Tomorrowland Terrace and you can sit at tables while you enjoy your desserts.
The Terrace is an open-air space, so no air-conditioning, but it is still a comfortable place to relax prior to the evening’s entertainment.
On to the sweets…
I loved how these weren’t the same old desserts that you can see at many of the Disney restaurant buffets. These were original and nicely themed to coordinate with the Fireworks show we were about to see.
Here are some of the delights that were displayed on a buffet table…
I definitely got my money’s worth in chocolate covered strawberries alone! I think I must have had 8 or (maybe) 10! The Cast Members were wonderful and kept everything well stocked. You didn’t have to worry that you wouldn’t have your fill of your favorite treat.
There was also a station with chocolate “fondue”. It is fun to dip the different snacks into the chocolate sauce.
Also, there was a Cast Member serving bowls of vanilla ice cream…
… with toppings that could go on your ice cream or you could use the sprinkles to “decorate your own” cupcake. I *might* have also poured my chocolate fondue sauce on top of my ice cream for a real sundae treat.
For a savory snack, cheese cubes and a fruit plate was also available.
Since this is the Magic Kingdom, there were no alcoholic beverages, but the presentation of the sparkling cider was very fancy.
There was also coffee, tea, hot cocoa, lemonade, milk and water.
After having as many sweets as possible, I decided it was time to take my spot on the lawn in the Garden Viewing area. A Cast Member will escort you from the Tomorrowland Terrace down to the viewing area whenever you are ready.
I loved this spot on the lawn because it has a fantastic view of the Castle facade. Without giving too much away, I just have to say that the projections on the front of Cinderella Castle will take your breath away. So, having a great view of the Castle is very important for the show – it is not just about the Fireworks in the sky. However, if chair seating is important to you, I definitely recommend the Terrace seating as well.
The Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party is a wonderful way to cap off your day at the Magic Kingdom. No stress about getting a great viewing spot for the show plus delicious desserts to enjoy. You can’t go wrong if you book the Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party. What is your favorite Walt Disney World dessert party?
