Question Frozen Dessert Party- Yes or No?

I have done the Magic Kingdom & the Star Wars dessert parties- they both were Great!

But now I am looking into going to the Frozen Dessert Party. I know it is $79 per person. I did see the list of goodies. I know you get a great view of Illuminations and a ride on Frozen ride (Norway). I am not sure if Disney will have this available next May. I still need to know....

In your opinion- have you done this and did you enjoy it?


Thank you......

We did this in March and all four of us loved it. We also did the HEA Garden View and Pirates & Pals. The Drozennparty was far superior in the CMs (everyone was very accommodating and so very nice to everyone especially the youngsters) as well as the food/desserts. The location was nothing short of excellent. They were very clear on the evening procedure (eating, fireworks, eating and packing some snacks to go (while waiting for the crowds to dissipate) and then walking as a group to the ride. Also passed the restrooms in case anyone needed them. Everyone was so kind and my son felt some of the desserts were his favorite from the entire trip. I personally enjoyed the fondue. If you have any specific questions that Inmay ne able to answer, do not hesitate to ask.

Thanks......we're planning to do this on our trip in December and I hadn't seen too many reviews or comments about it. Just waiting for late November/ early December dates to open up for booking.

I am sure you will have a great time. My only other pieces of advice is to pack a container or grab an extra cup with lid to take some extra snacks for the road or for whatever you do not finish while watching Illuminations. Also, arrive 15-20 minutes early or not until the exact time of the party. We arrived when told to but there was already a large number of party goers in line awaiting admittance. If I did it again, I would not arrive until the party was starting and enter last using that other time to do another ride or pavilion. Tables are pre-assigned so it does not matter when you get there.

Anyone have any ideas when dates for early November (11/9 or 10) will be released?

I know I was told 120 - 90 days out but I know in my experience booking it was much closer to 60 days. I was told bbn it was due to the Flower & Garden Festival so this might be the problem for you as well (Food & Wine Festival will just be wrapping up). I would suggest looking at previous months and try and determine the likely dates and base your plans on that info. Good luck - I know thebwaitingbis so difficult.

I have heard early August, but don't know if that's anything more than a rumor.

Thanks for info!

My sister (who is finally coming to WDW with us after not having been in decades, yes, decades!!) requested that we do the Frozen Dessert Party - I too am anxiously awaiting for dates (in Oct) to open up. I've done other dessert parties and wasn't too excited about this UNTIL I read the reviews on this thread! I hope I can book it b/c I think my sister (and the rest of us!) will really enjoy it! Thank you!

Wow - I just looked again tonight and suddenly the dates for the dessert party are online for the rest of the year, including several the week we're there. I'm hoping that the dates were just released and possibly available to book tomorrow b/c when I checked just a little bit ago (it's late at night! LOL) nothing was available. Here's hoping

I booked it! Thanks again for the great review that encouraged me to book!
