GRAND GATHERINGS at Walt Disney World
Think of all the people who make you the happiest and imagine being with them right now. What would it be like? In no time, you'll be telling old stories. Making up new ones. Laughing until it hurts. And feeling like everything is right.
But in the real world, how often can any of us make these moments actually come to life?
This year, the Walt Disney World® Resort is celebrating the special magic that happens when friends and family gather together - Magical Gatherings™.
There's no better place for everyone of every age to find something just for them. Whether it's blasting off into outer space, teeing off onto a rolling fairway, dancing the night away or stepping into a fairy tale, there's special magic for everyone.
This is your chance to make memories, rekindle relationships, and remind each other what being a family is all about. When you gather in this magical place, the real world is left behind. Here, busy schedules are banished. And everything anyone could wish for is right at hand. So you have all the time in the world to concentrate on the people who are here with you.
And now we're making it easier than ever for you to plan a vacation with the people closest to you here in the most magical place on earth. When you want to make it all happen, we're with you every step of the way. Need help with pre-arrival planning? Want to arrange dining and lodging for larger parties? It's done.
This year, we've even arranged special magic just for parties of 8 or more (ages 3 and up) staying at a selected Walt Disney World® Resort hotel - called Grand Gatherings. Imagine a dinner at Epcot® with storytelling for the kids and VIP viewing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. Or a rambling sunset safari on the African savanna of Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. Everything is dedicated to make the very most of your time together.
Walt Disney World magic. Come enjoy it now, but don't do it alone. Just think of the people who make you happiest. And imagine the magic multiplied.
