    I am so disappointed! I called to make reservations to the International Dinner and Illuminations and Magical Fireworks Voyage but I was told I can’t because we are a family of 4 instead of 8. Is there any alternatives? I really wanted to do this for my ma

    Hi Hope!

    Unfortunately, I have bad news and good news.  The bad news is the International Dinner and Illuminations Dessert Reception is a Grand Gathering event, requiring a party of 8.  I've always wanted to do this myself but we either didn't have enough people in our party, or when we did have a large party, some members thought it was too expensive and we decided not to split up.  My goal is to experience it soon as it sounds great.

    The good news is you can do the Pirates and Pals fireworks cruise with a family of 4.  In fact you can do that solo!  Reservations can be made by calling (407) WDW-PLAY.  You can also do a private Wishes cruise for your family, and even a private Illuminations - Reflections of Earth cruise, but they're both relatively expensive.

    Have a magical vacation!
