A Very MerryTime Vacation, A Family Trip Report- Happily Ever After Dessert Party

I have to say, stepping into Magic Kingdom, at night- decorated for the holidays is nothing short than the most magical feeling…

IMG_3146 IMG_3149 IMG_3150 IMG_3151I was lucky enough to be able to secure 3 Fast Passes for us tonight. We headed straight to Big Thunder Mountain  and then Space Mountain…

From Space Mountain, we took the quick walk to Tomorrowland Terrace to check into The Happily Ever After Dessert Party that begins at 7:45pm.

As my son has a tree nut and peanut allergy- he was given his own, special plate of desserts!IMG_3178

This dessert party has 2 viewing options. Plaza viewing, which keeps you inside Tomorrowland Terrace, seated by the railing and have access to desserts throughout the party-


We chose Plaza Garden viewing.  To get an idea, this is what the area looks like in the daylight.IMG_1434

Once we were full, we were instructed to ask a Cast Member to walk us over to our spot, which we did and we then got comfy on the “grass” to wait for the show to start. We probably did this at around 8:45pm, the show starts at 9pm. There is a PhotoPass Photographer there to take pictures with the castle behind you as well.


But once the show starts…. it just takes your breath away.

The area is not crowded at all, so you have plenty of personal space to enjoy the show!

I am so in love with this new fireworks spectacular- the projections, fireworks, the words… it’s just my absolute favorite – in my opinion- there is no better way to see this show than this way. Right now, it is so incredibly popular- people start claiming viewing spots HOURS before the show begins. This was a stressfree & delicious way to enjoy the show on our arrival night.

After the show, we hung around inside the Plaza Garden to watch “Once Upon A Time”- a castle projection show that started about 20 minutes after Happily Ever After ended.


Once the show was over we headed to The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train…


Mike seemed a bit tired after our long day!


Little did he know how much we had scheduled for the next day… 😉
