Why You Should Go To The Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Dessert Party (Unlimited Cupcakes!)






"Hi Mr. Stormtrooper. Are you nice like Finn?" Natalie scowled as the Stormtrooper marched on. "He just walked right past me. How rude!"

The thing about the stormtroopers walking around Disney's Hollywood Studios? They don't stop. And if they do stop, it's quick. They'll say, "Proceed with photo," and you better be ready, because if you aren't, they keep moving.



"Just keep trying to get their attention," I urged Natalie. "Maybe you'll get lucky at the Dessert Party tonight."

Yes. You can sign up for a Star Wars Dessert Party. Look, I'm all about desserts. When I heard it was ALL YOU CAN EAT desserts, I paid for my family without hesitation. Plus...there were adult beverages. I repeat: ADULT BEVERAGES. After walking around all day with a mood flipping tween girl and a teenager who sighed dramatically whenever I went into a store to shop, I knew I'd need an adult beverage.

You can sign up for the Dessert Party online. Just look up Star Wars Dessert Party and it'll pop up. It's $69 for everyone 10 years old and up, and $39 for kids 3-9. It's held in the Launch Bay where you meet Chewbacca and Kylo Ren. When you check in, you get these lanyards to wear.





All the food is set up and you'll drool all over yourself. Or maybe that was just me. I've been told I'm uncouth.





If you aren't into desserts (!?) there are healthy options. Grapes. Other fruits. Veggies. Hummus. But who wants that when there are cupcakes?

You can get sodas, water, and a Guava juice.




Plus there are the ADULT BEVERAGES. I was carded when I placed my order.




I'm kidding. I wasn't carded at all, and I instantly felt old, but I knew I could drown my sorrows in the booze. I tried the Galactic Punch.





The drink was tasty, but I only had one, because my teenager informed me it was "inappropriate to drink alcohol in front of your children." He has autism, and he's very much by the rules. In his mind, one sip of alcohol will get you drunk. I informed him that one drink would not get me drunk.

"Okay, but if you pass out, I'm leaving you so you learn a lesson," Tommy answered matter-of-factly.


There are small tables set up inside, or you can eat outside.


Guys? They also had Nutella frozen in dry ice. It's delicious.


You basically stand around for an hour. You can explore the Launch Bay, or stuff your face with the desserts the entire time like I did.



"Mommy? Can we go see the Jawas? How many cupcakes have you eaten?" asked my judgmental daughter.

I swallowed down a hunk of chocolate cupcake and agreed to see the Jawas. One Jawa wanted Natalie's Stormtrooper pin that she bought from the store.





Towards the end, Stormtroopers appear because they are the ones who lead you to the fireworks. Another reason to go to the dessert party is you get your own reserved spot to watch the Star Wars fireworks.

"Hello!" Natalie called out to a Stormtrooper. (There are two.) "Are you nice like Finn?"

They walked by.

"Well," Natalie huffed, offended.

"Here, eat this, it'll take the pain away," I said, passing her a cupcake because yes, I had to get another one.

Natalie nibbled on the frosting. "They're coming back!" She shoved it back at me. I finished it off because...well, cupcake.

Natalie stood up straight and...saluted.

"Why did she do that? This isn't the military," Tommy asked.

But..a Stormtrooper STOPPED.

Natalie saluted again.

He balled up his fist and Natalie tried to fist pump him. He shook his head rapidly. He was not trying to fist pump. He was trying to show her the Stormtrooper salute. Natalie finally got it, and he moved on.





"Cool. They acknowledged you," I said.


"I want to be a Stormtrooper," Natalie said. "A nice one. Like Finn. I'd tell Kylo Ren to be kind. Did you just get ANOTHER cupcake?"

I popped it into my mouth. "No," I replied, my speech garbled.

I mean, look. If I'm paying $69, I'm going to eat all I can. And drink all I can. But I will say I was a responsible adult and only had one alcoholic beverage. This is mostly because Tommy kept peering at me as if he expected me to suddenly pass out or jump on the tables and start doing the can-can. He was so sure I'd get drunk. After I finished my drink, I grabbed a Diet Coke and had like 4 of those.

A little after 8 it was announced that it was time to move to the fireworks area. The Stormtroopers lead the way. Keep your lanyards on. This is how they know that you're supposed to be with the group. A few people who weren't part of the party tried to jump in, and the cast members told them to leave. Politely. You're also given these Chewbacca steins to keep, plus a bottle of water. He sort of looks high, but I still love him:




I poured the rest of my Diet Coke in mine. It was awkward to sip out of, but I found a way.

Now, it's still crowded because there are probably like 40 other people or so at the party, but it wasn't terrible. We got an amazing view. The show is a mix of fireworks and scenes from all the Star Wars movies.








It was my first time seeing this, and I was impressed. Lots of cool special effects.


Would I do the dessert party again? Yes! I mean...UNLIMITED CUPCAKES PEOPLE!




Would you do the Star Wars Dessert Party?

  12. That looks like so much fun! We did the Tomorrowland dessert party years ago. We all remember it because my son literally lost a tooth while standing above the dessert buffet and some guy yelled out, "Little dude lost a tooth!"

    Don't worry, it didn't fall into the desserts. :)

    I hope the force of light diet inside me is stronger than the dark side of sugary sweats when i decide to conquer that party.
