Star light, star bright, first star I see tonight...Tonight ends an era as we say goodbye to Magic Kingdom's Wishes Fireworks. I remember seeing Wishes 13 years ago, the year it first started. I cried from the all emotions I felt and I have cried every time since then. This last weekend I cried for one final time as we attended the Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party at Tomorrowland Terrance. I look forward to seeing the new show, Happily Ever After, but Wishes will always hold a special place in my heart. So make a wish, and do as dreamers do, and all our wishes, will come true.
As you can see there were lots of delicious choices. Besides the main dessert station, they also had a sundae station, cookie station with a decorate your own cookie options, cheese & fruit station and drinks. When we were finished eating a cast member escorted us out to a special viewing area in front of the castle. I thought this was the perfect way to view the show. I didn't need to stake out a spot early only to be pushed or have someone squeeze in front of us. It felt relaxing being able to sit on the hub grass and enjoy Wishes fireworks once last time.
One of my favorite events at Disney is Dapper Day. If you are asking what is Dapper Day? Dapper Day celebrates the tradition of "stepping out in style" and is held twice a year, Spring and Fall, at Disneyland, Disney World and Disneyland Paris. It is the opportunity to dress your best and head to the parks. Whether it vintage inspired or just dressing your modern day best. I love seeing everyone dressed up and all the creative outfits to see. It is people watching at it's sophisticated finest. Now Dapper Day is not an official event put on by the Walt Disney Company but I love that Disney has started to embrace Dapper Day. This year at Magic Kingdom they offered special picnic lunches and a picnic area as well as Main Street Bakery offered special Dapper Day cupcakes. This year Disney World had their first 2-day event. The first day was at Magic Kingdom and the following day was at Epcot.
The first day of this years Dapper Days was held at Magic Kingdom. Joining in on the fun Disney offered a special picnic lunch to purchase. It included your choice of Fried Chicken, Chicken Caesar Salad, Greek Salad Wrap, or BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich; all lunches come with house-made chips, a fruit cup, a Dapper Rose cupcake, and a fountain beverage. They also had a kids meal with choices of Chicken Strips, or Uncrustables Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich; those include house-made chips, a Go-Go SqueeZ, a mini Dapper Rose cupcake, and a kids’ fountain beverage. I loved Disney added this for Dapper Day. It was very fun and delicious! The one draw back is it seemed to take a very long time to get our food. I am not sure if it was because they had to assemble all of the boxes, too many people eating or what but hopefully next year they do this again and have a faster way of getting the food out other than that this was perfect.
Spring Dapper Day was wonderful. If you want to learn more about Dapper day or upcoming events you can go to the Dapper Day webpage
