    Hello! My family is traveling to WDW in October for my father's birthday. We are looking to have a group birthday dinner with 15 people around 5:30 pm. Any suggestions on the best restaurant for a large party? Thanks so much!!

    Hi Noelle,

    How wonderful that your entire family will be together to celebrate your father's birthday.  Being with family is even better when you're at Walt Disney World.  I have two suggestions for your celebratory dinner; Via Napoli Ristorante in Italy at Epcot, or Teppan Edo in Japan, also at Epcot. 

    Via Napoli's large tables are perfect for a group of your size.  You can all sit together and enjoy pasta, pizza and wine as you toast your father's special day.  Teppan Edo also has large tables so that you have a front row seat to the chef's mastery as he prepares your meal right in front of you.  If you're not able to get a single reservation for all 15 people, try splitting it up for seven or eight on each reservation.  Also try for either an early dinner time or a late dinner time to boost your chances of securing your preferred restaurant.

    We get tons of questions regarding birthday celebrations and cakes, so I'm sending you over to the Moms Panel site for more suggestions on ways to celebrate birthdays

    The Moms Panel would like to wish your father a very Happy Birthday and we hope that your family enjoys this magical time together.
