    Hi Moms and Dads! My family is going to WDW in March and there are 13 of us. I could only make one reservation and need to call restaurants directly to see if they can accommodate our large group. Any recommendations for dining with such a large party?

    Hi Karla!  We used to have family reunions for 16 of us during our Disney vacations. There are many restaurants that can accommodate large groups but please understand that you might be at different tables. So many guests worry and want one table but honestly we found that two or even three worked so much better. When you have one long table you can only talk to the person next to you or across from you. When you split up you have a better chance to converse with more in your group.  We used name tickets and as soon as we knew what the tables would be in each restaurant we would pick and it let everyone sit with new people each time.  Luck of the draw if you got the kids table too!

    Some places that we liked included Citricos, Yachtsman Steakhouse, Japan, Biergarten, O'Hanas, Chef Mickey, Artist Point, and Captain's Grill. Other good spots include Brown Derby, Primetime, Fulton's, and Liberty Tree. Seriously all Disney restaurants can make it happen but some are easier then others. If you have a favorite just call and try and let them figure it out!
