    How long should it take for a party of 10 to eat dinner at Paddlefish in Disney Springs?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shaunna! 

    I had the opportunity to dine at Paddelfish in February as a party of 11, so I'm excited to share with you my experience on the food, the ambiance, and the time it took to enjoy our dining. 

    Our meal took over two hours, but we also did not rush. Paddelfish had also just opened, so I have no doubt the service is running a little more smoothly now for large parties - they were very attentive and did not rush our group when we lost focus and starting chatting, "Squirrel!" You'll have some control over your timing by how quickly everyone orders. Keep in mind, this restaurant falls into the fine, signature dining category, so take your time. 

    As for the food, you will not be disappointed! The table-side lobster guacamole was a hit! They bring the cart right to your table as they mix your guacamole, this allows you some say.... a little extra lime, an extra pinch of salt, etc. I also enjoy their cocktails, the Backyard Fizz is wonderful and went well with my Fried Green Tomatoes. 

    The ambience also offers that Disney difference with beautiful views from the Sunset Rooftop. You will definitely feel like you are in a signature dining restaurant. 

    I hope this is helpful in your planning, Shaunna! If you should have any additional questions, I am here to help and always ready to discuss Disney dining.
