    What are the perks of booking via Grand Gatherig? Does a GG offer discounts as far as the resort stay or is it an additional cost? I am planning a 5 year old birthday party in August 2012. I am planning to travel with 30+ adults and children.

    Hi Tamara,

    The birthday party you are planning for your five-year-old sounds amazing!  Who wouldn't want a party with thirty guests at Walt Disney World?

    If you will be traveling in August of 2012, Grand Gathering experiences and booking will not be available to your travel party.  Disney has decided that they will no longer offer Grand Gathering options after late January 2012.  However, resort and dinner reservations for large groups are still readily available.  Call (407) WDI-SNEY to book your resort or vacation package.  Then, 180 days in advance of your arrival, call (407) WDW-DINE to make advance dining reservations for any table service restaurants you'd like to experience.  Advance dining reservations are always a good idea, but this is particularly true if you need to accommodate a large group.

    Feel free to post additional questions to the Moms Panel if you need any help planning your grand Disney adventure!

    Best wishes,
