    Extended family is planning a Magical Gathering. We stayed at the Poly recently (loved it!) but DH wants to rent a house next time. Not sure what's involved in a "MG" and am worried that if we stay off-site we'll miss some of the festivities?

    The Polynesian is such a fabulous resort! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your recent visit.

    You'll find more information on Magical Gatherings at this link. In order to participate in the offerings of a Grand Gathering (party of 8 or more), guests must stay at a WDW resort. Grand Gatherings offer special magic and festivities. You will be able to purchase and participate in such events as the Safari Celebration Dinner of the Illuminations Dinner and Dessert reception.

    While anyone can plan a magical gathering at WDW, it seems that only those participating in a Grand Gathering are eligible for the extra events.

    See the link provided and then let us know if you need further information. Have a fun time planning!
