Family dining outside

    Jonathan from GA Asked

    I have a family of 10 and we are staying at the Polynesian Resort from 1/1/21 to 1/11/21. This is our Mom's 60th bday on 1/10 . Is there a room or space available to meet for around 3 hours for a family gathering? we are also DVC for other spaces

    "Welcome home," Jonathan and thanks for stopping by planDisney. 

    Jonathan, I love that you're planning ahead for your Mom's very important day! In my mind there is no better place to celebrate a milestone than the Walt Disney World Resort and in fact, I'm planning to celebrate my son's upcoming 10th birthday at Disney's Riviera Resort, so I appreciate this question! 

    Jonathan, as the Walt Disney World Resort continues to operate in a state of phased reopening, there are a few spaces that are currently unavailable, but, just as the Genie was able to help Aladdin create fanfare, I'm hEAR to help you find a Magical option. 

    Jonathan, my first recommendation would be to check out Disney Meetings & Events. From picnics to elegant galas, this service allows you to build any type of event and customize all aspects. You can even submit a request online to get quick information. Since the initial request is only a few questions, I highly recommend exploring your choices! 

    Now, Jonathan, if you know you're looking for a more "low key" celebration, alternatively you could make a group dining reservation at an "off" time (think mid-morning or mid-afternoon). Since your party size is 10 people, you can call into Group Reservations at (407) 939-1942. Kona Cafe at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Grand Floridian Cafe at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa or The Wave... of American Flavors at Disney's Contemporary Resort would be three perfect spots for a dinner party of your size. If you decide to explore this option, make sure you talk with the Cast Member at Group Reservations about all of your needs. 

    Jonathan, I hope this helps as you're thinking ahead to your Moms' special 60th birthday! I'll be wishing on star for you that you're able to create a party that fits just as perfectly as the glass slipper fit Cinderella. 

    Please come on back and see us here at planDisney with any other questions you might have,
