Got a message from Disney about something new. Dessert Party at the Noodle Station for special view of the MK Fireworks. Does anyone have any more information. I know you have to pay, but do you know how the viewing is from there? And with the overhang, how many people can they really fit in there and still have good viewing? The message says that it starts now and it's for a couple of months. :unsure:

I can't speak for the party, rather the seating.

Before the last float enters view for whatever nightly parade there is, I always high-tail it over to the terrace to grab a table. If the weather is nice, I get one out from underneath the overhang, closer to Main Street. If the weather is more "humid", then I grab a table close to the "point" between Main Street and Tomorrowland.

The viewing is pretty good; there are some trees that block the righthand fireworks if you're too close to Tomorrowland. I like it due to:
A) You have actual seats
B) you have covering if it's drizzling
C) very, VERY few people try and stand in front of you
D) Taking pictures is great here... the lighting from the terrace gets any people you want lit without flash.

I've viewed the fireworks from there many times. It's a good spot to rest your tired feet and legs after a day in the park. In my mind, the ability to sit usually outweighs the slightly decreased view (fireworkd are to the right of castle rather than over and some are partially blocked by the trees) but I don't think I would pay to sit there for cookies & brownies. I would rather have an an ice cream sundae from Main Street.

I made an ADR for this dessert party on Friday night, Aug 7th just to try it out. I'm a little concerned about viewing Spectro from so far away. I guess having the desserts available to me will help me get over it.

This looks like a great thing to do. Please let us know how you like it :unsure: My wife is very keen on this idea so we hope that they continue holding them.

I've watched from there. It's an ok view, made better by having a seat. I wouldn't be excited about watching a parade from there however, because it's pretty far away.

Although I was initially interested in this offering, I've come to think of it as a disquieting metamorphosis, the way Disney is gradually closing off a lot of the prime viewing areas for fireworks, etc. in all their parks, and making them only available on a private party/pay basis.

I agree that Disney has been moving to monetanize their fireworks shows lately. You have the tomorrowland thing now, which was proceeded by the Fantasmic! dinner package (for better or worse) and Epcot has had many prime areas roped off for years for use for private groups (AKA people who pay a lot to watch the fireworks).

We went to Mk yesterday, and I had called wdwdine in the morning to see if there were any spots for this available and was told it was sold out, upon arrival at MK went to guest relations to ask again, again they said it was sold out, so decided to just enjoy the park, around 6:30 we walked past the noodle station and saw them setting up for the dessert party, asked an attendant and she said that they always leave spots open for walk ups but they were given out around 5pm, again guest relations fails to have proper info...anyways she said to try around 8:45pm because they have 3 tables that they put out when it doesn't rain...we where there at 8:30pm and the line for check in was long, but, the weather cooperated so we were checked in at 9:05pm.
First the desserts were awesome, chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate moose, fruit tarts, cheesecakes shot glasses, mango sorbet, tiramisu, pistachio creme brulee, brownies, doughnuts, cookies o yeah fruit as well.....
For drinks they had coffee (regular and decaf), lemonade, blackberry tea, apple juice, hot water with various teas and water.
The tables are asigned so you can't pick where to sit but it doesn't really matter, you're stuffed with sugar by 9:40 just in time to walk around a bit and let the sugar come down. There is a photopass person with the perfect view of the castle changing colors at the party as well.
Around 9:50 people started getting up and heading toward the rail/wall...it wasn't crowded at all, so no worries, the kids got in front and I stayed back a bit, perfect view for tinkerbell and the fireworks explode toward the right of the castle...
I noticed the CM's picking things up while the show was on, but afterwards there was still a small table with whatever desserts were left. My daughter decided she still didn't have enough and grabbed another plate (she regreted this decision about 20 minutes later) they didn't rush us out, we stayed in the area until 10:30pm.
So my advice, if you want to attend and don't have a ressie, go by the podium of the noodle station and ask for walk up opportunities.
In my opinion this was worth the value, you can clearly see spectro from here, of course not the up close experience but still a good view without the hassle...the food was amazing and always reffiled, there was no waiting in line to get it. the view of wishes is good as well, although not centered with the castle , but still a good one.
Hope this helps

Great information. I would never have thought to check at the Noodle Station, especially since they said "Sold Out". Seems like it may be worth giving it a try. Thanks again.

I really want to give this a shot. They have a Desert Party at Disneyland for Fantasmic and it was a blast. The deserts I've seen for this look very good and if you are trying to see the fireworks it is nice to be out of the crowd.

Yesterday we went to MK and walked past the check in desk for the dessert party, my daughter wanted to tell them how much she enjoyed the desserts and asked if they would think of extending it, and they said yes.
They are extending it till January but there will be a price increase after Aug. 28th I think she said.
So if anyone wanted to give it a try now you can.

i called dining to book this today but the CM couldnt find anything; not only isnt there any indication that it is extended, but he couldnt find anything listed about it for the rest of this month; hopefully that means that they are upgrading the system so by tomorrow all will be well and i can book for the new dates;

we did this mon night aug 31; what an experience; we saw spectromagic from there which broke down for about 20 minutes which caused wishes to go on about 20 minutes late; but the desserts kept us busy; tink flew right over our heads; i highly recommend this especially if you like desserts; there is also a photopass CM inside with you for some great night pics with the castle in the background;
