A sweet way to end the day in Magic Kingdom Park just got sweeter, with new desserts and a second location for viewing the Magic Kingdom Park “Happily Ever After” fireworks spectacular. You can book the Happily Ever After dessert party to enjoy these sweet treats and a reserved viewing area for the fireworks.

Based on your preference, you can choose from two viewing areas: Plaza Garden Viewing (if you want to better see the castle projections) and Tomorrowland Terrace (where there’s reserved and covered seating).

And those new desserts! Here’s a peek at the 10 desserts included with the Happily Ever After dessert party, where all but two are new:

  • A Villains Chocolate Cupcake inspired by Ursula with purple buttercream and chocolate crispy pearls.
  • Pineapple Delight is a Dole Whip-inspired treat, light and fresh with whipped pineapple panna cotta with pineapple compote and a fresh pineapple spear.
  • Chocolate Dipped Strawberries – dark chocolate, of course, are back.
  • Chocolate Marshmallow Tart salutes Frontierland with a reimagined s’more: a graham cracker tart with chocolate custard topped with marshmallow meringue and a chocolate bar.
  • Macarons, a sweet nod to Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland in flavors such as pistachio, raspberry, lemon, chocolate, coffee and vanilla.
  • The bold Cheesecake Brownie Bite is in honor of the heroes in “Happily Ever After,” with a brownie topped with chocolate chip cheesecake and whipped cream. Add a drizzle of chocolate and more chocolate chips. This one is a repeat and guest favorite.
  • Strawberry Tart inspiration comes from Main Street, U.S.A., an all-American dessert with a vanilla tart shell filled with lemon curd and raspberry sauce. Add a little strawberry mousse, strawberry crisp pearls and a little whipped cream with a fresh berry.
  • The “Happily Ever After” Cupcake is the signature dessert – red velvet cake with yellow buttercream icing.
  • Perfect for Instagramming with a “Happily Ever After” chocolate garnish.
  • Chocolate Almond Cake features raspberry sauce in the center and a fresh raspberry on top.
  • And Mickey is the muse for the Oreo Mickey Treat, whipped Oreo panna cotta topped with two chocolate ears and sprinkled with chocolate pearls on top of an Oreo.

Celebrate Independence Week at Disney Parks

This year, Disney Parks are honoring America in style by celebrating the Fourth of July 2013 with a little Limited Time Magic!

From July 1 to July 7, 2013, the Disney Parks on each side of the country are ringing in Independence Week—a red, white and blue bash where both the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida will be saluting our nation’s birth.

Some of the Limited Time Magic at Disney Parks will include a special fireworks spectacular, when Independence Week lights up—from sea to shining sea!

A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky
Every evening will ignite into a heroic display at both the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort! Rocketing into cosmos each and every night of Independence Week 2013, you can experience “Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky.” You can view an altogether different kind of star-spangled banner exploding to life in the air high up above!

Catch the American Spirit at the Disneyland Resort
You can meet Mickey Mouse and more during Independence Week at the Disneyland Resort! Head into Disneyland Park to snap a picture with Mickey, who will be sporting all-American attire each evening at Town Square in Main Street, U.S.A. Then, you can put on a pair of illuminated Mouse Ears and “Glow with the Show” during inspirational performances of both “Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky” at Disneyland Park, as well as a patriotic pre-show to “World of Color” at Disney’s California Adventure Park.

Join the Festive Fun at Walt Disney World Resort
You will shout “Hooray!” each day at Walt Disney World Resort as Goofy, Donald and Pluto spread the “Spirit of ’76” on Main Street, U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom. You can join the trio as they introduce the “Celebrate a Dream Come True” Parade with a rousing new pre-show, featuring the Main Street Philharmonic and the Citizens of Main Street, in addition to Walt Disney’s historic horse-drawn calliope. You won’t want to miss this flag-waving, song-and-dancing celebration of the United States!

Collect Classic Americana Disney Merchandise
Commemorate what makes America great during Independence Week with a proud assortment of flag-waving merchandise! Be on the lookout for star-spangled souvenirs, including red, white and blue Mickey T-shirts, patriotic trading pins, light-up star necklaces and even costumes for Duffy the Disney Bear, colored just for the occasion at both Disney parks.

Indulge in Desserts as American as Apple Pie
Discover the spirit of America with delicious desserts at the Disney Parks!

Take a tour of Walt Disney World Resort and find irresistible offerings in each of the four parks. Stop by StoryBook Treats at Magic Kingdom to try out the Red, White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake. Or, experience a flavor explosion at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park or Downtown Disney area with the Fourth of July Cupcake, complete with Apple Pie filling, Caramel Buttercream and Apple Crisp Topping. For even more sweets, pop into Epcot for a Skillet-baked Peach Cobbler with Vanilla Whipped Cream or the Red, White and Blue “Baked Alaska” Mousse.

Want all the best the West Coast can offer your taste buds? Head into Disneyland Park at the Disneyland Resort and savor the Red, White and Blue Mason Jar Desserts at Carnation Café. For other sorts of sweets, enjoy Patriotic Cotton Candy, Apple Pie Pockets or Fourth of July Cupcakes. Each one of these candies and cakes can be found right inside several Main Street Shops!
