    A few years ago we did a grand gathering event at Epcot with a dinner, dance party and a dessert buffet while watching Illuminations. I understand Grand Gatherings are no more. Have they added any Epcot Experiences like this?


    I noticed that the Disney Parks blog recently announced a new Dessert Party at Epcot. Currently, it's being offered on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and features desserts from Italy, France, and Morocco on the menu. Best of all, you'll get reserved viewing for Illuminations. And then just a few days ago, the blog announced an Epcot "after-hours" at several of the World Showcase restaurants from April 17 until September 15. Imagine getting to spend a few more hours in the park to "wind down" and then depart the park after the hustle of the crowds!

    Hopefully one of these two options might be a new adventure for you.

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
