I would do this in a heartbeat. ROL is absolutely charming and something one has to appreciate in person. I can't believe I'm saying I would do this...but I would.

Loving this show intensely is the only thing that is actually intriguing me to check out one of these silly little dessert parties to begin with. Honestly, I'd rather have another Tiffin's Talk event. That was amazingly well worth what we paid for.

My wife and I tried to watch it once...broke down mid show....they reset the whole thing, and wouldn't you know...it broke down mid show again. They just cancelled at that point. We waited until the next trip to finally see it. I thought it was fine. For us, just like Fantasmic, it was a one and done. Not for us. Must be for 'someone' though because those (super comfortable) seats are always full to the max...or close to it. I predict the dessert party will be full too.

You don't like to try new things?

Again with the hairy ice cream bar...

They could but it would have to be ewok sized.

But who wants to bite into a hairy ice cream bar?

If they can't invent a Wookiee Premium Bar, something is very wrong.

They’ll give you Mickey Bar so it will make up for it.

I'm sure the Galaxy's Edge one will be $499...

Yeah, it was more triple the price point than double.

Other than $79/adult, you’re absolutely right. ;)

I agree with the Osborne Lights dessert party, we were lucky enough to go the first night (got our cool osborne light blankets, too). Don't actually do dessert parties. This one, however, meant a great deal to us since it was the last year, and we got to sit under the lights unencumbered (outside the dessert area it was literally nuts to butts) until after park closing. We didn't even care about the desserts (we ate a few, not big sweets fans). We felt the experience was worth it. So special. RoL? Not so much.

I’m not sure about the snacks but you can request sugar free desserts. I’ve seen it served in a box like a boxed lunch or on a plate. I think they have allergy options as well.
