    My dad's 60th bday is soon. Would love to celebrate in a special way. He loves Illuminations & has wanted to do the dessert reception w/reserved viewing. In the past I remember this being an option for groups-Magical Gatherings. Does this still exist?

    Hi Nicole!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You can still do an Illuminations Dessert Party if you have a group, but it is pretty expensive unless you have a very large group.  Instead, you might want to think about an Illuminations cruise.  That is an intimate affair where you watch Illuminations from a boat.  That is a fabulous event and would be perfect for a birthday celebration.  Before the cruise, you could have dinner at the Beach Club, Yacht Club, or at the Boardwalk.  The Flying Fish Cafe at the Boardwalk and the Yachtsman Steakhouse would be great places for a birthday dinner and then you could just walk out to your boat.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
