    What exactly is the grand gatherings experience? We are traveling in March of 2012 with a large group and I just wanted to find out what it is?

    Hi Pamela,

    Guests traveling with 8 or more in their party, staying at select Walt Disney World Resorts are considered a Grand Gathering.  However, The Grand Gatherings Safari Celebration Dinner, Good Morning Gathering and International Dinner & IllumiNations Dessert Reception will no longer be offered at the Walt Disney World Resort as of January 28, 2012. Guests can continue to contact the Disney Reservation Center to book these experiences until that time.

    I would encourage you to look into other magical experiences such as the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party and the Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage.  I hope this helps!

    Have a magical day!
