I won't use the laughing reaction to the actual post, because I'm not laughing at you, but that's friggin' hilarious. You'd think a multi-billion dollar global media behemoth would have an IT staff with a clue. Oops.

So much for the much vaunted "shift" in the reservations for the dessert parties during MNSSHP. Didnt go live until after 8 this morning and then only for dates up until the end of August.

A minor procedural question: Do you have to have tickets already purchased to the party in order to be able to book a dining reservation during the party? Or are those completely separate things?

Update - Disney has shifted the Resort Guest booking date for both the dessert parties and table service restaurants from June 6 to June 7: Starting June 7, 2024, Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can book their reservation to enjoy a deviously delightful dessert party during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party—offered on select nights August 9 to October 31, 2024. All other Guests will be able to book reservations starting June 10, 2024.

I've paid enough for the party ticket, I'm not paying that much extra for a desserts party.

DCBaker20 days ago

It's still listed on the Mickey's-Not-So-Scary Halloween Party website, but the link about Table Service restaurants is broken and there's currently nothing listed on Cinderella's Royal Table web page about the party. 🤷‍♂️

No Cinderella's Royal Table this year?

It's worse than that... with no discount for party day tickets, reduced ride availability during the party, and the party ticket price easily equivalent to or higher than a normal single-day ticket, they're practically doubling admission income with essentially no increase in labor expenses. Conceded: a few more hours of electricity and water, but they don't take the park off the grid overnight anyway.

We got in at $69/person for the after-fireworks dessert party in 2019, just days before they hiked the price to $84/person. That was steep enough then, and like I said, we couldn't eat enough to justify the cost. Of course, I remember buying Mickey Ice Cream Bars for my wife and I plus 2 of our 3 kids (at the time) for about $12, back in I want to say 2007 (and we did it a year or two earlier as well), and watching Wishes! from the Tomorrowland Terrace seating area facing the castle for free. Which is why I have no problem pointing out to people that Disney is, in fact, charging for things that used to be free.

ToTBellHop20 days ago

I remember when my kids were 2, they were free and the party was $30 (!) Hard to believe it was that cheap 9 years ago. It was worth $60 to us. I could never imagine spending $500. Different strokes, I guess.

HauntedPirate20 days ago

Dessert parties aren't worth the money when it's a regular park day - You are paying upwards of $100/person for average (at best) desserts you can't possibly eat enough of to justify the cost (The 6 of us tried, in the before-times, at a lower price point, still couldn't do it). During a party? I won't say it's dumb to do them, but... you have far more money than brains if you do.

That's what I thought. I'm not terribly upset about missing out. I'm looking at going on Sunday 10/27 as I have the Pixie Dust pass and can't be in MK during regular admission that day.
