Recent Disney World news

  • Innoventions West and part of Innoventions East will be closing in late April
  • Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party is being rebranded as Wishes Dessert Party which will begin on July 5 and include much higher prices
  • Be Our Guest breakfast is now available through June 18
  • Frozen events are returning to Hollywood Studios from June 17-September 7 and include fireworks, a dance party, a twice-a-day cavalcade, and a stage show featuring Olaf. The Frozen Sing-Along will also continue to be available, but it’s moving to the former American Idol Experience theater (which will now be called the Hyperion Theater).
  • A new Jungle Cruise-themed restaurant is rumored to be coming to Magic Kingdom

Quick tip of the day

Many/most Quick Service restaurants at Hollywood Studios offer specialty cupcakes that are usually delicious and count as a snack credit (or as a dessert on your Quick Service meal) if you’re on the Disney Dining Plan, or they cost you around $5 if you’re not.

I was soooo disappointed in the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party. Everyone rushed the rail. I booked it because I wanted a chance to sit and enjoy fireworks after a long day, and if we had to stand up anyway, we might as well have saved $97 for a family of 4 and eaten Mickey Bars on Main Street. I complained to the manager and he was obnoxious about it.

i was wondering about this? So this isn't part of the dining plan? I was contemplating doing this.

Do you know if they are taking reservations for breakfast at Be Our Guest? When I put any of the days that we will be there in May into the reservation system, it says that no times are available? Is it that popular??? I can get lunch reservations but my picky kids will do better there with breakfast.

Is the Be My Guest Breakfast a character dining experience?

Thanks for the information on Be Our Guest for breakfast. We're going to WDW for a week in the fall and I'm wondering if I can book a reservation there on two separate days of our trip or if I'm only allowed one reservation per trip/dining plan package?

Nevermind, just now remembering that you said this is a test, so it might not be around come fall.

I heard you mentioned the Epcot Dessert Party... do you have to call to book that party or can you do it online? I think I'd rather have the desserts from Epcot than the ones from MK!

You can book that by calling 407-WDW-PLAY. Here's more info on that party - https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/dining/epcot/illuminations-sparkling-dessert-party/
