    What is the maximum number of people allowed in a dining reservation. We are a group of 11 and of course we want to eat our meals together, but is that realistic? From the pics I see at 50's Prime Time, all of the tables look pretty small.

    Hi there, Robert! We are about to travel down to Walt Disney World with a pretty big group ourselves, and we faced very similar issues.

    With so many Disney dining experiences to choose from, you can find a fun spot for each day of vacation. Some restaurants have a number cap that won't let you book online, but you can always call into dining reservations at 407-939-1947 to get them to help you.

    You are right that some restaurants, like 50s Prime Time Cafe, tend to have tighter spaces and smaller tables. However, I had a party of 10 there just a few months ago. There are a couple of areas where there is a bench seat on one side and regular chairs on the other, and there were three tables in a row. With a party like yours, where they can't necessarily seat you all at the same table, they will try to do something like that - or at least seat you in the same area - where you can be closer together.

    Some restaurants that are just perfect for larger groups include 'OhanaWhispering Canyon Cafe, and Via Napoli Ristorante. I'd skip smaller stops like Beaches and Cream Soda Shop with the whole gang. 

    Have a wonderful time!
