2024 Gathering Overview

Please join us for the

2024 OVERSEAS BRATS GATHERING

August 15-18, 2024

at the beautiful Wyndham Buena Vista Resort in Disney Springs, Florida!


Who is invited? All Brats, All years, All Schools

Why should I go? First, it's fun!  We share a very special heritage. You will not meet others with similar experiences anywhere else regardless of whether you attended school in Japan, Spain, or Africa. If you don't know anyone when you get there, you will leave having new friends.

It's Disney after all! Kids of all ages are invited. Take advantage of the special room rate and bring the kids and grandkids. They can take advantage of the bus transportation to the Disney Parks which pick up/drop them off back at the hotel. If they choose to join us for OSB activities, register them when you register yourself.

What will I do when I arrive at the hotel? You will be met by an OSB Ambassador (blue vest). The Ambassador will greet you, assist you with registration, and point the way to the Teen Club. After hotel check-in and dropping your bag in your room, you have a wide choice of activities. Join us in the Teen Club Hospitality Suite for a cold beverage and meet other Brats; take a dip in the pool, or wander down the path to Disney Springs (no entrance fee).
