There are multiple dessert parties that Disney World usually offers at different parks. One of those dessert parties includes a VIP viewing of Fantasmic! at Hollywood Studios.
The Fantasmic! Dessert & VIP Viewing Experience is a bit different from other dessert parties. Usually, the parties gather guests for food and drinks and then move them to a separate viewing location. With this experience, guests pick up their food and drink from stands and then head to their seats for the show. It’s good to show up early so you have time to get your food and sit down to eat it before the show starts.
It’s important to keep in mind that the food items in the box do change, so if you try this experience you may receive some different items. I believe some of the items, like the cheese and crackers and the chocolate covered strawberries, are usually included. I have to say, I was pretty impressed with the food I received. Before this experience, I had only been to one other dessert party and the food was not very good, but that was not the case here. Everything that was in the box was really good, including the fruit. So many times when fruit is included in prepackaged items it ends up have a “blah” taste to it, especially the grapes. However, in this case the fruit was very good, so that was a nice surprise.

Admittedly, it was a little awkward eating with the box on my lap, but most of the food was easy to eat with one hand. You can see my full review on this experience here.
The cost of the Fantasmic! Dessert & VIP Viewing Experience is $39 per person, making it one of the most inexpensive dessert and viewing combo experiences on property. I was pleased with this experience and would definitely do it again. Unfortunately, right now the dessert parties are unavailable. Hopefully, we’ll see these experiences return to the parks when the nighttime spectaculars return.
Hope you enjoyed this week’s Snackshot! Have you tried any of the dessert parties?
