7. Fireworks Dessert Parties and Cruises
Experiencing fireworks and nighttime spectaculars is an age-old tradition for almost all Disney World vacationers. But having the opportunity to enhance the magic even more by attending a dessert party or specialty cruise is something everyone should opt for at least once in their lifetime. Such viewing parties and events are held throughout the different parks and generally comprise of bountiful all-you-can-eat dessert buffets paired with VIP seating arrangements. At Magic Kingdom Park there is the Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrace with designated seating for the Happily Ever After Spectacular available both in Tomorrowland as well as at the Plaza Garden. Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise is another option for enjoying the Magic Kingdom’s grand event. For this evening excursion you will set sail along the Seven Seas Lagoon, stopping at an optimal viewing point while delighting in an array of delicious dessert offerings. The Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage is also a great suggestion for kids and adults alike. And for the ultimate high in the sky vantage point there’s Celebration At The Top—Savor, Sip, and Sparkle at the Contemporary Resort’s California Grill. At Epcot you can take in the Frozen Ever After Sparkling Dessert Party, which combines lavish dessert, premium seating for watching the World Showcase’s presentation of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, and even the opportunity to ride the Frozen Ever After attraction. Hollywood Studios has its own experiences, including the Fantasmic! Dessert & VIP Viewing Experience and Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party. And since everyone loves a parade, don’t forget about Tiana’s Riverboat Party—Ice Cream Social & Viewing Party, which is held at Magic Kingdom in conjunction with the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade and features character interactions with Tiana and Prince Naveen from Princess and the Frog.
