Epcot is said to be replacing the Illuminations Sparkling Dessert Party with a new Frozen Ever After Dessert Party that will include exclusive ride access and a much higher price point.
Beginning in mid-July 2017, the Frozen Ever After Dessert Party will be offered on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays only. It will offer dessert selections, drink selections (including alcholic beverages) a reserved viewing area for Illuminations and one extra benefit.
Guests will be escorted onto the Frozen Ever After ride in Norway with no waiting. The viewing area for the fireworks should be in the general area of the Fastpass+ viewing section for Illuminations, you’ll then be escorted past Mexico on to Norway for your exclusive ride opportunity.
The cost for this new version will be $79 per adult and $47 per child. For comparison, the Illuminations Sparkling Dessert Party cost is currently $49 per adult and $29 per child. You’re basically paying $20-30 per person extra for the opportunity to ride Frozen Ever After.
Will you take advantage of this Frozen Ever After Dessert Party?
Going November of 2018 the week after Thanksgiving. Do they still only do Sun Wed and Fri?
The small one saw me reading this so I guess we will be booking. quite like the idea of hanging around tho for the ride instead of the mass exodus for the bus and as PP says above the price is in same bracket as the other dessert parties. love that you always first on these things so thanks for the heads up.
I think the addition of the ride benefit is fantastic. Don’t think Frozen is in my family’s interest group, but I would imagine this would be a wonderful package for people who haven’t yet been on Frozen Ever After. Price is the same as dessert parties WITHOUT rides, too, such as the Star Wars Galactic Spectacular, which we attended just two weeks ago and were actually rained out on. No Star Tours ride associated with that!
Next trip for us is Nov this year. I was hoping to book the regular Illuminations party on a Thurs night. I see that there are no bookings out that far yet. Do you think they’ll have the regular dessert party as well or is this a complete replacement? Not a chance I’d pay the extra money to ride the Frozen ride.
I was told it will replace the Sparkling Dessert Party
Bummer. Thanks for the reply!
Thanks so much for always letting us be the “first to know!”
Do you know if they’ve started booking yet? We loved the Star Wars dessert party; this does seem pretty steep though!
Booking should begin soon.
