Walt Disney World today announced that it is now taking reservations for its upcharge dessert parties at its hard-ticket after-hours holiday parties this year. The HalloWishes Fireworks Dessert Premium Package at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party includes reserved seating at the parade and private viewing and desserts for the fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom's Halloween party. The price is $79 for adults or $47 for children (ages 3 to 9), plus tax... on top of the $72-and-up price to get into the party. At Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, the Wishes Fireworks Dessert Party gets you the same deal. Reservations are available at the links above.
The Secret Life of Movie Promotions
No, it's not the new ride we've been awaiting, but Universal Orlando has announced some Secret Life of Pets stuff that's happening at Universal Studios Florida in advance of the movie's premiere. Between now and July 10, USF will be showing an exclusive trailer before the Animal Actors on Location! performances. There also will be a trailer before the nightly Universal’s Cinematic Spectacular show, and Secret Life of Pets photo booth outside the Animal Actors theater.
Living the dry life at Universal Orlando
But it's not what Universal is adding that's getting its fans' attention so much as the stuff it's taken away. The Universal Orlando Annual Passholder Facebook group blew up today when passholders noticed that the Coke Freestyle machines at Universal no longer have an option to dispense plain ol' water.
Some fans report that this is an issue with Freestyle machines elsewhere, too, while others are just having fun suggesting things such as bringing their mugs to the Jurassic Park splash zone for refilling. Some also report that using an interactive wand while casting an aguamenti charm in front of drinking fountains can yield free water, as well.
Construction's in the air
Finally, Disneyland fans noticed height-testing balloons in the air over the Star Wars land construction site today, giving us a rough idea of the scale of the new land.

Of course, Disneyland fans can match Universal fans for smack-talk, too.Tweet
