    dining reservation 16 people

    Greetings Daryll, and welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you've chosen to be our guest for your fall vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth. 

    Since you'll be traveling with a large group, sitting down for a few meals is a great way to spend time together. I'll be visiting with extended family next month, and even though we might go our separate ways during the day, we have dinner plans as a group most nights. It's a fun and relaxing way to recap our adventures and discuss the next day's itinerary. 

    With a party of 16, you'll want to have several people in your crew make Advance Dining Reservations for the same time or within 15-30 minutes of one another. My family of 10 has two or three reservations for each of our upcoming meals, and we tried to coordinate times as best we could. My mom, my sister, and I each made reservations in our My Disney Experience accounts, and when we arrive at a restaurant, we'll let the Cast Member know that we'd like to be seated as close together as possible. I recommend having three or four members of your group attempt to make reservations for parties of 4, 5, or 6. Best wishes finding tables and times that work for you!

    Daryll, when planning dining for a large group, some restaurants might work better than others. Biergarten Restaurant in EPCOT, for example, seats parties at long, communal tables, so this might be a great choice. Whispering Canyon Café at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is a fun restaurant with a spacious dining area and is another option I'd suggest for your crew. My family also has plans to dine at Sanaa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village. It's a fantastic hidden gem that's a little out of the way, so it's usually easy to reserve several tables here. At Disney Springs, Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant is always fun with a crowd. If you need any more restaurant ideas, don't hesitate to reach out again; my panelist pals and I LOVE to talk about Disney food!

    I hope this is helpful! Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog and social media for updates and information as more restaurants come back online. You're sure to enjoy a wide array of culinary delights in September. Thanks so much for stopping by, and we look forward to seeing ya real soon!
