    In the Summer of 2011, I am planning to have a big family vacation 16 adults, and 16 Children, we are looking at booking 9 rooms, is there any type of discounts we can take advantage of as such a large group?

    Hi, Lesvia! What fun! Do you think I could just slip into your family unnoticed as part of your trip! One of the things you'll want to do first is to register your group as a Grand Gathering by calling 407-WDISNEY. You can ask the WDW Travel Planners if there are special rates for groups as large as yours -- especially if you all want to be in the same resort. In addition, you'll want to make sure that you associate your Advance Dining Reservations as well as learn about the unique experiences available to large groups.

    You can join other Grand Gathering parties to enjoy some very special meals known as Grand Gathering Experiences:
    • International Dinner and IllumiNations Dessert Reception - Enjoy a sumptuous dinner buffet including storytelling for the kids, followed by VIP viewing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot theme park.
    • Safari Celebration Dinner Take a VIP journey across the rolling savannah. Then enjoy a family style, African-influenced feast and entertainment from Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park.
    • Good Morning Character Breakfast - Begin your Magic Kingdom day with a unique Disney Character Breakfast filled with surprises!

    Gratuities are included, and theme park admission is required. At least 8 persons in your party must attend the same experience. Reservations for Grand Gathering experiences are required and can be made 3 to 180 days in advance by calling 407-WDW-DINE. 

    Have a wonderful day, a fabulous family reunion and a most magical vacation!
