Orange County Task Force Will Allow Disney To Reopen At Their Own Discretion

If you are looking for a stress-free way to enjoy the Happily Ever After fireworks show and feast on yummy food, the dessert party at Tomorrowland Terrace is a great way to do both. There are now some changes to both the menu and the price.

End your magical day at Magic Kingdom with a variety of desserts and beverages along with reserved seating for the Happily Ever After fireworks extravaganza. The dessert party is a great way to ensure you have optimal seating for the show!

Walt Disney World Planning Timeline

Note: There are 3 options for the dessert party:

  • seated at Tomorrowland Terrace
  • standing at the Garden Plaza
  • an after fireworks party

With the seated option, you will eat and then enjoy the fireworks show from Tomorrowland Terrace.

With the standing option at the Garden Plaza, you will eat and then be moved to the Plaza Garden where you will watch the show.

If you choose to enjoy the after fireworks show, you will watch the show first and then eat.

A tray of desserts including mini cupcakes, mini cheesecakes, mini cake squares, mousse cups, chocolate dipped strawberries, push pops with chocolate Mickeys, and cookie dough bites with chocolate Minnie ears.

The Menu

Desserts, cheeses, and fruits await you! The menu includes items such as:

  • Chocolate-dipped strawberries
  • Disney character-themed desserts
  • Hand-scooped ice cream
  • Create-your-own cookies and cupcakes
  • Ooey gooey toffee cake
  • Action station s’mores
  • Savory snacks, like house-made eggrolls and spinach dip

Plenty of beverage offerings are also available for you to enjoy. There is one change to this though! Now, guests 21 and over can enjoy a wide selection of beer and wine.

This is available for the seated option and after fireworks option. Alcoholic beverages are not listed under the standing option on the Disney website.

The drink menu includes:

  • Sparkling cider
  • Hot chocolate
  • Signature lemonades
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Beer (not available for standing Plaza Garden option)
  • Wine (not available for standing Plaza Garden option)

The Cost for the Seated Option (effective 2/1/2020)

The cost is $99 for adults ages 10 and up. This is a $15 increase.

Children ages 3 to 9 can enjoy the party for $59. This is a $9 increase. Children under the age of 3 are free.

Tax is included in the above prices. However, gratuity is not included or required (but it is encouraged for good service as always). You will need separate theme park admission to Magic Kingdom.

The Cost for the After Fireworks Dessert Party (effective 2/1/2020)

The pricing is $89 for adults ages 10 and up, which is an increase of $20. The pricing for children ages 3 to 9 is $53, which is an increase of $11. Similarly, tax is included but not gratuity.

The Cost for the Standing Option (effective 2/1/2020)

If you choose the plaza view, pricing is $79 for adults ages 10 and up. This is a $10 increase.

Children ages 3 to 9 are $47. This is a $6 increase.

I did not see the option to have alcoholic beverages for this option, which explains why the price increase was not as much as the other options.

When you also consider the fact that children can’t drink alcohol, the price increase for children seems unnecessary.

Reservations for the dessert party are highly recommended and can be made up to 180 days in advance.

Final Thoughts

The price increase for the dessert party is just one of many price increases that have taken place recently. Last week, we reported that many character meals, buffets, and prix fixe meals increased prices. You can check out the full list of restaurants affected HERE.

  1. Of couse this is just one more ridiculous price increase. I guess they dont want the middle class there. Disney is becoming a rich persons paradise. This is NOT what Walt intended for Disney to be. He wanted all families to enjoy it. I have never done a dessert party nor will I ever. I would never pay 500.00 to watch fireworks! Several years ago we were able to see the castle show and fireworks in the garden when it was beside the castle. We were able to fastpass it and we got there early and laid on our blankets eating food with an AMAZING view of the castle. Last May we stayed for the goodnight castle show after everyone headed out with only a handful of people there and laid on the ground in the circle right in front of the castle. .BEST NIGHT EVER!! We did both of those for free! Im glad we got to do that. Our next trip will be Universal. Not sure when we will go back to Disney but Im a big planner and we never stand in lines and always take Kennys advice and we have a great time! We definetly wont be eating many meals in the park anymore and we will continue to stay off property. We will never pay for the ridiculoys extras like EMM and after parties and dessert parties. We have a great time avoiding all these ridiculous price gouging events. Like others have said, as long as people keep paying for these events then Disney will just keep raising their prices. We will take more trips to Six Flags and Great Wolf as these are much more affordable and great family fun. Disney is something we can only afford once every few years and it takes all our tax money plus more to do it. It takes a year just to recover from the cost of it! I guess the rich will have the parks to themselves eventually.

  2. We did the Tomorrowland terrace dessert show and I was so disappointed. I never read to line up an hour earlier( done tons of research). Was told to get there for 7 and we got there at 6:30. There had to have been 50 people ahead of me so by the time we finally got to the front, we had to scarf down snacks and go get a spot for fireworks.

  3. I’d love to do this but I have three 10-15 yo in my party. Not keen on paying alcohol price for them! Not big eaters either so they won’t make it up in food.
