    I am coming to Disney Feb 23-26 for a Cheerleading Competition and I am looking for some dinner places for 1 A large group and 2 a Budget of $20-$25 per person with tax tip included 3 and maybe some place fun because the group is mostly teens girls 17-18

    Hi there Theresa!

    Here are my picks for you considering your budget. Disney restaurants can be expensive so the kids need to pay close attention to what they are going to order.

    In the Boardwalk Area, there is Kouzzina by Cat Cora and the ESPN Zone which I'm sure the kids would enjoy.

    At Downtown Disney, there is more of a variety of restaurants T-Rex, Planet Hollywood, House of Blues, Bongos Cuban Cafe and Rainforest Cafe. All great picks and each offers something different.

    If you are going to be inside ESPN's Wide World of Sports during the competition and would like to eat there, they do have the ESPN Grill.

    Now on to the parks:

    Disney's Hollywood Studios has probably the best option for your group, it offers the Sci-Fi Dine-In Theatre which would be a lot of fun for your group and it offers more menu items in your price range.

    Magic Kingdom has very few sit down options for your budget unless you are looking for counter service which doesn't require reservations (Best is Cosmic Ray's or Columbia Harbor House). For Table Service, your only option is basically Tony’s Town Square Restaurant.

    Epcot has many restaurants but all of the table Service ones are out of the price range. For counter Service I would go to Tangierine Cafe in Morocco, Sunshine Seasons in The Land, or Sommerfest in Germany.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom has a great reasonably priced buffet at Tusker House but it's just above your price range for dinner.

    To make dining reservations, book online or call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 up to 180 days prior to your visit. I hope this information helps you with your planning and if you have more questions, please ask away, we are always here to help! Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel!
