Reviews of Merry and Bright Osborne Lights Dessert Party
Fabulous lights, wonderful music, and delicious sweets certainly bring out the festive spirit in all of us. Disney has put all three of these ingredients together to offer the 90 minute Merry and Bright Dessert Party at Hollywood Studios.
This special ticketed event allows guests to enjoy the famous Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights while enjoying some holiday sweets and drinks in a private area at the end of the Streets of America.

The view from the party was awesome and it was so nice to at least see a lot of the lights and the light show without being in the huge crowd. The desserts were really not that great. There was a small chocolate cake that was good and the rice krispie treat item, but other than that, the food left a lot to be desired.
They let you in beginning at a little after 6:30. For those that did not arrive earlier, you of course would not know that. We happened to get there around 6:20, so waited in the very long line of people waiting to get in. It was really not set up for the crowd in my opinion. There were 2 sections of food, and plenty of it and it was replenished often...but, the tables were too small for the number of people trying to get to them and it made it difficult to maneuver.
We attended a similar party at MK for Halloween and it was much better. The food was better, the set up was better (assigned seats, so you don't have to deal with the runners, food and drink hoarders and the massive run for the souvenir...what was that all about?).
Overall, I would still do it for the last year of the lights for the view. If the lights and the event continued, I would never spend the money again. Also, the whole experience is a little lost on the kids. They will most likely not want to sit at a table for a couple of hours watching the lights.
