Fireworks Dessert Party
Disney World currently has 4 dessert parties to choose from, one in each park. The most recent one I attended was the Star Wars Dessert Party in Hollywood Studios.
The dessert party usually starts one hour before the fireworks, but we checked-in about 45 minutes early. That allowed us to get a table without any issues. If you show up too late, then you may have trouble finding a table that is close to the food/drink tables.
They have both sweet and savoury selections, along with beverages including alcohol options for guests 21 and older. There is more than enough food to fill your belly and everything is delicious.
The party is in the Star Wars Launch Bay, so you are free to go and meet characters at any point during the evening. About 30 minutes before the fireworks start, cast members will escort you out to a special viewing area for the Star Wars fireworks. In my opinion, this perk alone makes the party worth it. You get a really great point of view and they rope it off so that no one is standing immediately in front of that area.
You’ll also leave the party with a souvenir. When I attended, they were giving out the Tie Fighter popcorn buckets, but I believe they change the souvenirs from time to time.
All in all, it was a really fun experience and I would definitely recommend it, especially if you are a Star Wars fan!
