Long time lurker, first time poster here and am wondering about the worth of the new Magical Gatherings. From reviewing what they are doing on the website it sure doesn't seem like a super great deal at this point. I was initially super excited when I saw this because I know what a PITA planning one of these trips is, I have personally planned family gatherings at the parks the last few years. In 2001 I brought together a family group of 20 people to WDW, last Christmas it was a group of 8 to DL, and this December I am bringing together a group of 20+ people back to WDW. I can't see the value yet, maybe it'll be clearer once the actual website/software is there, but giving me a chat area is no big deal. Personally, something like a free hopper for every 10 hoppers purchased would be better, this is almost like a commercial to get me to buy Disney walkie-talkie's or Pal Mickey for everyone in the group.
