If this does indeed prove to be the case, then that is a big relief! We should have known that Disney wouldn't have introduced a new event without thinking it through properly. And although we would prefer the earlier dessert party, it will be nice to have the choice of a later one should we decide to do this again in the future.
I'm glad you got an answer but as for not thinking it through, I think some of that happened as they amended they original announcement through the blog site to say this

UPDATE 5/21 There is a limited number of guest reservations for the new After Fireworks Dessert Party to ensure that everyone viewing fireworks from the Plaza Garden area will have plenty of space and great views that we know are so important.
It's too bad that the answer they gave you says they'll use both sides but their site doesn't. It use to be Plaza East and West which they could still distinguish and tell people that - this party goes here, that party there in case people actually have a preference as to which side they get. I just want less crowds hence booking the dessert party.
