You can now book a VIP view for Illuminations at Epcot through their Sparkling Dessert Party. This is similar to the Tommorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party held in the Magic Kingdom. The party is held on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 7:45 p.m. to 9:20 p.m. You will experience samplings of various desserts from around the World Showcase. Reservations can be made up to 180 days prior to your arrival date. Reservations can be made online , or by calling (407) WDW-DINE.
If you have ever tried to find a good spot to watch Illuminations during peak season this may be of interest to you! Who wouldn’t want to eat chocolate Grand Marnier pot de crème from France, flambéed cinnamon glazed doughnuts from America with hand-dipped coffee ice cream, and much MUCH more, while sipping a glass of sparkling wine all while watching Illuminations?! You can bet this will top my list on my next trip!
The event is held outside and is subject to weather conditions. In the event of inclement weather, the dessert portion of the party will take place in an indoor location. Cast members will direct you to the indoor location at the time of check in. Check in for the party is located at World Showcase Plaza. You may call (407) 560-7377 after 5:30 PM for recorded weather information.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION – The event is held outside and NO SEATING is provided. Please do not think you are guaranteed seating for Illuminations by purchasing these tickets. You are guaranteed the best view in all of Epcot with some of the finest culinary experiences around. However, seating will be the same as if you were to attend Illuminations any other night at Epcot. Seating is plain hard to find! Unless you are a first timer, you should know that part of the Disney experience is standing most of the time anyway! 🙂 Don’t worry, it is all worth it!! I promise!
