Fireworks and dessert: the two together sound like a magical combination. While you certainly can choose to enjoy a Dole Whip or Mickey Ice Cream bar during a nighttime spectacular show, there are other ways to experience Disney’s fireworks. If you’re looking for a special experience for you and your travel party AND a way to have access to a reserved area with a premium view, then you may want to consider a fireworks dessert party at Magic Kingdom or a fireworks dining experience at Epcot.
Fireworks Dessert Parties at Magic Kingdom
Now that you’re curious, perhaps you’re wondering where you can enjoy a fireworks dessert party? They are currently offered at Magic Kingdom and they are very popular! Not only will you enjoy decadently prepared treats, but when it is time for the fireworks, you will be escorted to the Plaza Garden adjacent to the Tomorrowland Terrace in Magic Kingdom! There is also an option to purchase seats at the Tomorrowland Terrace that will keep you on the patio the entire time! Below we detail the three options for fireworks dessert parties at Magic Kingdom. The prices listed include tax, but do not include gratuity for your servers.
Disney Enchantment Pre-Party
Beginning 90 minutes before showtime, enjoy delicious 50th anniversary-inspired desserts at the Disney Enchantment Pre-Party. Chocolate-dipped strawberries, butterscotch pudding, and a variety of cheese and beverages are on the menu for this special meal, including alcoholic beverages for those over 21. Price for anyone 10 years and older is $99 and price for children ages 3-9 years is $59.
Disney Enchantment After-Party
Guests of the Disney Enchantment After-Party will have the same experience as Pre-Party guests, however, they will simply enjoy their desserts after the fireworks allowing the crowds to die down as they exit the park! After-Party guests can check in at Tomorrowland Terrace up to 60 minutes before Enchantment begins, and will be led to the Plaza Garden where they will enjoy the show. Pricing is also the same as the Pre-Party – $99 for ages 10 and older and $59 for ages 3 to 9.
Disney Enchantment Treats & Seats
When viewing fireworks in the Garden Plaza with a reservation for a fireworks pre-party or after-party, guests will be standing during Enchantment. If you’d rather enjoy your show and desserts while seated, then when choosing a fireworks dessert party, choose Disney Enchantment Treats & Seats. Here, you have a table on the patio of the Tomorrowland Terrace where you will enjoy the sweet treats and Enchantment right from your table. Pricing for this seated experience is $114 for ages 10 and up and $69 per children ages 3 to 9.
Fireworks Dining Experience at Epcot
At Epcot, you can get more than just dessert with your fireworks dining package! Choose from two experiences that will have you seated right on the water with an amazing view of Epcot’s nighttime spectacular, Harmonious.
Rose & Crown Fireworks Dining Package
At the Rose & Crown Dining Room near the UK Pavilion in the World Showcase, guests can choose from a prix fixe menu that includes one appetizer, one entrée, and one dessert while dining on the patio overlooking the World Showcase Lagoon – the perfect spot for viewing Harmonious! Check-in begins 45 minutes before the show is scheduled to begin and the entire experience lasts 90 minutes, concluding when Harmonious ends. Unlimited beverages, including alcoholic beverages for ages 21+, are also included in the cost as is gratuity! Price for ages 10 and older is $89, for ages 3 to 9 $39.
Spice Road Table Fireworks Dining Package
At Spice Road Table, guests will enjoy Harmonious from covered outdoor seating along the World Showcase Lagoon. Your senses will transport you to a Moroccan café as you choose your meal from a prix fixe menu. Two Mediterranean small plates, a dessert platter, and unlimited beverages are included for each guest. Price for ages 10 and older is $72 and for ages 3-9 is $31 and is inclusive of tax and gratuity! Unlimited alcoholic beverages for ages 21 and older are included in the price!

Important Things to Note about Fireworks Dining Packages
Guests who have experienced a fireworks dessert party or dining experience highly recommend it and agree that it is well-worth the money! These are quite popular, so your best bet is to make a dining reservation 60 days in advance from the date that you plan to go. Both the dessert parties at Magic Kingdom and the dining experiences at Epcot require a valid park ticket and park reservation for the day of the dining reservation. A dining reservation alone does not grant you entrance into the park.
Also important to note is that fireworks are not a guaranteed part of any of these experience. Schedule changes and inclement weather, both known and unexpected, are able to occur, so on the weeks and days leading up to your reservation, you should keep an eye on the show schedule and local forecast to make sure fireworks will be scheduled for the night of your reservation! For the Rose & Crown and Spice Road Table experiences, guests are required to cancel 48 hours in advance of their reservation else they will be charged full price for their party!
