Dessert Party at Epcot

Has anyone done one of these? My wife is telling me she has read about it but I can not find any info on them. Looking for specifics, menu, price, is it during Illuminations?
Thank You.
Bill

The only dessert pary that I can think of at Epcot is the 3D dessert party during the food and wine fest in the fall. There is one at Magic Kingdom, the wishes dessert party.

Yes, I know about the one at Magic Kingdom but I am learning that there is one at Epcot also. I could be the one during the Food and Whine. I will be there 10/27-11/3 so that could be it. I just can't seem to find any info on it.

thanks
Bill

The info for it isn't available yet -- at least for 2012's F&WF -- but Disney should release more info around mid-summer, when they usually announce the seminars, demos, etc. that can be booked typically in August.

DH and I did the 3D Dessert Party 2 years ago and it was very similar to the Party for the Senses in that you get let into the party area between Canada and the UK. Inside, there are different "stations" with all-you-can-eat desserts and liquors, etc. I want to say, if I recall correctly, that it's first-come-first-serve as far as grabbing a table for the party, but even if you don't happen to get one, you can still wander around and sample all of the chocolates, cakes, pastries, etc. before they announce when it's time to head out for the fireworks.

As far as the fireworks, prior to their start, you are escorted to a roped off area wherein only party attendees can enter. We were given special glasses, for the 3D aspect, and had a prime spot for Illuminations. (The view through the glasses and from the area -- there are no seats -- so we just sat on the ground -- was really nice!)

When we went in 2010 (scroll down a bit to see the "3D Dessert Party" info), it was $45/pp; however, last year the price went up to $55/pp or $80/pp if you wanted a VIP ticket; i.e. you got a reserved table.

Also, it's been a Friday night-only event, and I recommend buying tickets well in advance if you think you might want to go!

As far as the cost, \we thought it was well worth the $45/pp being that the alcohol provided was worth the cost (vs the desserts which by comparison cost-wise wouldn't be worth it alone, IMO).

But I definitely say it's something to try at least once -- especially if you want to try something new this next trip!

You can do private dessert parties if you have 10ppl or more details are in the passporter wedding book. But venues start at 375 rental and 230 minimum spend food I think off the top of my head if you want more details pm me and I will dig out the exact details.

If this is so, I am sorry for the misinformation. Our Grand Gathering was in October.
