Taking my first trip to WDW and want to book a dessert party for either Illuminations or HEA. Okay if I am being really honest, I want to book both, but we already have Magic Mornings booked for both FL and TSL, so I am afraid if I add one more item, my traveling partner may disown me! Which one would you pick?
I would pick Illuminations…but that is default as I don’t like HEA at all.
Ha! I would pick HEA because I don’t like Illuminations at all.
For my girls trip in September we are doing HEA as it’s the only night we can see HEA with the Halloween parties.
I’d also do HEA, partly because I don’t like Illuminations and partly because it’s so easy to get a good view but the hub is so crowded for HEA.
Just pointing out that Illuminations will soon be no more while I suspect the other will be around for a while.
And that’s a happy thing for some of us
We enjoyed HEA a lot! Illuminations was ok but HEA is just so much more.
I (mostly) agree. Illuminations is okay, but we like HEA much more. And it’s harder to get a good view of HEA.
I would pick Illuminations. Like @lizzieanne771 said it is going away.
And it includes alcohol (which for a moms only trip is a plus).
If you are interested in adult beverages, go with the Illuminations.
If you are interested in avoiding crowds, go with HEA.
Thank you for everyone’s input! I have decided to do the HEA after dessert party. My rational is that the dessert part takes place after the park closes, so that gives a bit more park time. Also the party is a bit cheaper, by about $10, which will buy us a nice beverage at Epcot when we are watching illuminations. And like many of you have said, it will be easier to find a place to watch Illuminations.
