We have enough in our budget to comfortably add one more “once in a lifetime” fun extra to our celebration trip. I’ve already purchased EMM for fantasyland, which we are so excited about! In general I am not thrilled about the in-park dessert party experiences. However recently we learned about the Pirate Pals Dessert Party and the Ferrytale Fireworks Sparkling Dessert Cruise. My kids really love the idea of both (but I think they are leaning toward Ferrytale, because it’s on a ferry, the desserts look more fun/themed/special (the pirate party has chips and salsa, and prepackaged fruits and veggies etc)) My son used to be really obsessed with Peter Pan and has never had a chance to meet the characters, and even though he is a moody tween, I saw him light up a little at the thought. So it’s still on the table.
My other thought was the afterhours event at Animal Kingdom. Which is a lot pricier, but not outside our limits. Although, we already have tickets to the park, and we weren’t even going to go originally. We won’t have FPP for FOP because it is only the priority of two people in our party (however I think two others can be convinced to try it) I’m not sure it is worth it and I think my family will knock it off the list first. The times also aren’t stellar with our schedule
So I guess what i want to ask is, are there any other special magical add ons that I haven’t considered? We are also going to Universal (Strictly for Harry Potter… and I’m not interested in upgrading to express there… ) Has anyone done both the Pirate Pals Party and the Ferrytales? We’re mostly looking for something to do on arrival day, or something we can add on to our day in the parks. I thought it would be a great “welcome” to view the fireworks from a boat. It is my mom, me, DH, DS11, DD9, and DD6.
