The '''2006 World Gathering''' is to be held at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort in [[wikipedia:Walt Disney World|Walt Disney World]], near [[wikipedia:Orlando, Florida|Orlando, Florida]], in commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the founding of Mensa.  The [[Annual Gathering of American Mensa]] is combined into this gathering along with a meeting of the [[International Board of Directors]], and it is expected to attract Mensans from around the world.  [[Elissa Rudolph]] is the chairman of the World Gathering 2006 committee, which is independent of any local group.
 
 
In order to hold the [[Annual Business Meeting of American Mensa]] at this gathering, the [[bylaws of American Mensa]] had to be amended to extend the range of dates during which the ABM was to be held.
 
 
As the third straight U.S. AG held in what is regarded as a "destination city", this gathering is provoking some discussion and debate about the desirability of such locations versus less attractive (but less expensive) ones.  There are also concerns about the possibility of skimpy hospitality food, a la [[2004 Annual Gathering of American Mensa|Las Vegas]], due to strict rules of Disney properties, but the official Web site promises "a full choice of drinks and plenty of snacks of all types."[http://wg06.us.mensa.org/Sites/wg06/NavigationMenu/Register/Mealpackages/FoodFAQ/FoodFAQ.htm]
