Talking HalloWishes Dessert Party Announced for MNSSHP!

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blo...arty-for-2015/

https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/di...rtyfor20150005

For my fellow MO's going to the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party this year looks like we have something new to spend our money on! I'm on hold now to get a ressie since I can't seem to get one online. Good luck!

EDIT: Online finally went through. I had to go through the actual descriptive page of the event (2nd link).

I love the mouse but another $69.00 after I paid extra for the party?

True. But a guaranteed spot to watch the fireworks and parade with minimal crowds and waiting time is worth it for me since we are a party of 5 with kiddos.

This was pretty much my first Disney Halloween Party experience, minimal crowds, and great viewing spots without having to fight crowds for them.
This I found to be worth paying the Halloween Party price for.
But this was for a 6 hour party.

$69 for a party that is not much longer than the length of a fireworks show seems a bit steep.
I know it comes with deserts, but who needs that much desert?

Now if it was a full luxury dinner, with Disney Halloween Characters, and the fireworks view, I would consider it.

This is a racket. $60+ to get into the park. Then, another $70 to do the reserved seating. Then check-in and wait for parade. Then move to dessert party, check-in, wait, see Hallow-Wishes. You'll have little time for the attractions and shows.

We've never had a crowd around us for the parade and have always had plenty of room on Main Street for the fireworks. It may make sense if you want arrive 4:00 and get most of the attractions out of the way (though you always want to do HM during the party).

I actually thought it looked like fun, but the two nights I could possibly do the party are both sold out already

Make sure you call! Or go through the Dessert party's direct page and not the dining reservation page. I thought mine was sold out too but ended up getting lucky

Not worth the extra $ for us. We've been to MNSSHP twice and never had any problems finding a good place to watch the fireworks or the parade.

I know that MNSSHP just started last night, but I would love to hear reviews if anyone has actually done the MNSSHP Hallowishes dessert party.
