Wishes Dessert Party

Has anyone been to the Wishes Dessert Party since it was "refurbed"? I made reservations for our first Magic Kingdom night but keep going back and forth with whether I should keep them so would appreciate any input, especially if you've been to the new setup!

PROS:
*DH LOVES desserts and I think this would be a fun surprise for him
*We haven't done Wishes either of our last two trips and Penny has never seen Wishes
*Wishes is past Penny's bedtime and if we're going to see it I don't want to fight the crowds. If we don't do the party we will probably skip Wishes.
*We've never done any of the dessert parties and I would like to try one out

CONS:
*Obviously totally overpriced
*As listed on the Pros, Wishes is pretty late for Penny. My only solace is that we don't have an early morning planned the next day.

And add sweets / sugar to a little ones already altered sleep schedule?

Did the old Wishes Dessert and it was ok. I do not believe the revamped is much different treats-wise. I would suggest the Epcot dessert party during Illuminations. Better treats, champagne, not as crowded and great viewing.

Literally 50 feet away is Plaza Ice Cream. That's my dessert party... a hot fudge sundae.

We don't let me daughter eat sweets very often so we'd probably just let her have a couple of bites of ours to share. Since she would be free I'm not worried about getting our monies worth through her. Thanks for the parenting tip, though. sarcastic

Totally get that, but like I said if we don't go with the Wishes Dessert party we probably will skip it all together. It will be a late night for Penny and I don't want to fight the crowds for a good spot.

I'd say do it once then decide. Since it's been a while for you guys, I say do the party. I'm starting to see a trend, entertainment offerings that have been at Disney for a long time are slowly getting replaced. I can see both the Electrical parade and Wishes going away soon for new experiences.

Thanks, Mandy. I will definitely keep that in mind! awesome

Ok so the word on Facebook seems like it is a yes. They said that there is seating available which is nice, but everyone stands for the fireworks part but its very good seating. They said the deserts are yummy and there is many choices. I asked about a 2 yr old and some advice was to make sure she napes later or longer, and to eat a light dinner, if you want her to have any sweets I am assuming.
I would say that if you haven't seen it, you should, it has been around for a while now and like all things Disney Wishes might eventually go away and then you won't ever have the chance to do it again.

Sorry, did not mean to offend.

You don't want to spend a FP on it?

Thanks for the passing on the feedback! Most of the reviews I've found have been on the old party so that is helpful!

You know, that is a good point. I've never really thought about doing a FP for it because you can't utilize additional FPs throughout the day. But this may be something to consider. awesome

No worries. When I read it it felt a bit snarky to me. But 'tis the issue with reading vs. hearing to get the context.
