    We are bringing a group of 26 people to Disneyland for our 45th anniversary. Can we make dining reservations for that big of a group. We are interested in eating at the Storytellers cafe and blue bayou. Thank you.

    Hi Debbie! Welcome to planDisney!

    I see that you're bringing quite the party to the Disneyland Resort! I do hope your stay is extra magical. It can be tricky finding activities for groups that large to enjoy together, but finding the time to watch a Nighttime Spectacular is never a bad idea! If you start scoping out a viewing spot early enough, all 26 of you could be in the same general area to view the show! Currently, you'll find that Fantasmic!, World of Color, Disneyland Forever Fireworks and Main Street Electrical Parade all have returned to The Happiest Place on Earth, so you have many options when choosing the right show for you! 

    Debbie, I will say that it is possible to dine at the same location with your group of 26, but it can be very tricky and will require you to make several separate reservations. I'd recommend having 3-5 adults in your group use their Disneyland Mobile App to search for available reservations within 15-30 minutes of each other. You'll likely have better luck at Storytellers Cafe than Blue Bayou Restaurant, as that one tends to book up very quickly and is a little tougher to secure for larger groups. Restaurants in the Downtown Disney District may also be a little more accommodating for your large dining party.

    If you can secure a few reservation slots closely staggered in time, you can request with the Cast Member for your tables to be close to one another. Although there is no guarantee, Cast Members do their best to work their magic and make your dining dreams come true!

    Debbie, with a group this large, you may even consider reaching out to Disney Meetings & Events. Our friends over there are very used to working with larger parties and can work with you to set up a private dinner location at the Disneyland Resort where all of your Guests can celebrate this special occasion together.

    Have a magical day,
