    I'm celebrating my 40th this summer at Walt Disney World. For my dinner I would like a place that's open to my Florida friends without park access. Is there a restaurant for a group of eight to hang out and talk, but still enjoy some music?

    Hi Jaimie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you! How wonderful to celebrate such an important birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I definitely suggest that you try one of the amazing restaurants at Disney Springs. One of my favorite restaurants is STK Orlando. They have an outdoor seating area that offers a fabulous view. The atmosphere is chic and the in-house music fantastic. 

    If you want something a bit more laid back, you could try Splitsville Dining Room where the bowling is just as fun as the food. My husband and I also enjoy the House of Blues Restaurant and Bar. There are over 50 dining venues at Disney Springs so I am sure you will find one that suits your celebratory mood! Since shops and entertainment abound, you would have a lovely experience at Disney Springs with your friends.

    I also suggest that you consider ordering from Disney Floral & Gifts or call 407-827-2253 to order a specialty cake for the occasion. It is your birthday and you deserve to be royalty for the day! Be sure to make a Dining Reservation for your group.

    May you have a magical birthday filled with love and laughter!
