Grand Gatherings question

Hi all, am new here, but love the site

I had a question on Grand Gatherings. My extended family is planning a trip in December to celebrate my cousin's high school graduation & my graduate school graduation...there will be 10 of us together going, so in that sense we'd qualify for a GG and I would like to take advantage of the offerings.

My question is, do we need to all stay at the same resort. My uncle's family has DVC, but the rest of us do not and would stay on property, but not at a DVC resort. Also, a couple of our party would not be staying the entire trip...is this also a problem?

I would call, as I am the family trip planner, but I am in Switzerland currently and it's a wee bit expensive from here

Thanks!

Greetings from Chicago!

No, you don't all have to stay at the same resort. One of the benefits of staying at the same resort is they will link the reservations together so they can put your group in rooms near each other. But if you have someone out of the party that is at another resort, that's OK.

You still will qualify for the special meals that are offered etc.

Have fun!

Unless Disney has changed it, you have to have at least 8 staying on property to qualify as a grand gathering.
