    Hello Disney cast, my family would like to attend Disney for the summer. It would be a group of about 25 people (children included). Do we have to coordinate with the park since its a big group?

    Hey there, Roxana! Welcome to planDisney. We are so happy you stopped by with your question. 

    Oh boy! You do have quite the crowd coming to visit Disneyland Resort this summer. Before I answer, please let me offer my praises to you if you are the planner of your party. That is not an easy task! You do not need to do any coordination with the parks to bring a large party. You can purchase your tickets and plan your details as you wish and I'd be happy to share some tips with you.

    To begin your planning, you'll need to purchase the tickets and make your theme park ticket reservations. I recommend doing this as soon as possible as reservations do fill up. Theme park ticket reservations can be made 120 days out, so you are able to purchase now. 

    While big groups can come with some challenges, I think they also come with more magic! I think your biggest hurdle might be meals. This could be a good time to split off into smaller groups if you wish to book any advanced dining reservations. These can be booked 60 days in advance. If you are all planning on staying together I recommend finding a place to gather and sit and then utilizing the mobile ordering feature in the Disneyland app. This will allow everyone to order and enjoy from locations they prefer, but also let you all be together. In Disneyland Resort, I'd check out the seating area near the French Market Restaurant, Hungry Bear Restaurant, or in The Golden Horseshoe. At Disney California Adventure Park, the Pacific Wharf area, Paradise Garden Grill, and Flo's V8 Cafe, are places I find to have the most seating.

    Roxana, I hope this information helps you get a head start on your big plans! Please come back and visit us again if you have any other questions! See you real soon!
