    We are a group of 16, four generations, celebrating an 85th birthday dec 2013. I am ready to make our dining reservations in June 2013. Where would you suggest we can all eat together in the MK for dinner? I was thinking Crystal Palace or Be Our Guest.

    Hi, Dyana!

    What a very special celebration you have planned!  How nice that your family can gather to celebrate such a special birthday.

    I am going to suggest you go with Crystal Palace.  I like that it is a buffet so there will be something for everyone.  Also, this is such a festive environment, it will be perfect for a party.  And really, where else in the world can you have a birthday party and have Pooh and his pals joining in the fun?

    As soon as you hit your 180 day booking window, call a Dining Reservationist at (407)WDW-DINE.  With that large of a party, I suggest you book for all 16 with the understanding that your table may be split into two.  I would arrive at the podium 15 minutes prior to your reservation to see what their plan is for you, and request that the tables be near each other. This way, you can all be seated comfortably with the ability to make several trips to the buffet line and hop between tables to chat.  So much fun!  When booking, make sure to mention you have a birthday to celebrate.

    If you also want to to a quick service meal together in the Magic Kingdom, you might want to consider Pinocchio's Village Haus or Columbia Harbor House. Both have very large dining rooms where you can all gather together - and NO reservations needed!

    This is a large party, so please be flexible with the seating.  The Cast Members will do everything they can to make this a very magical birthday!   Enjoy!
