    Need ideas for a 50th wedding anniversary party/dinner for 18 (including 3 under 6).

    Hello, Ben! It's great to see you back here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.Wow, a 50th anniversary. Now, that is something special. 

    Ben, did you also know that the Walt Disney World Resort will be turning 5-0 in 2021? It looks like it's going to be a milestone year all around. 

    Since you're thinking about where to hold a party or dinner for 18 guests, let's talk about some options. There are a wide array of restaurants all around the Walt Disney World property that will accommodate 18 people. For example, Liberty Tree Tavern at Magic Kingdom Park might be a great option since the food is served "family style." If you're looking for a relaxed setting with some fun antics while you dine, check out Whispering Canyon Cafe over at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. 

    Ben, if you're hoping for more entertainment with your meal, might I suggest Biergarten Restaurant in the Germany Pavilion at EPCOT where your party can feast on a German buffet. Or, maybe a luau would be more festive? Disney's Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, held at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, is a great atmosphere for a large group. Whether you choose one of the above or maybe you have your own favorite, I recommend calling and speaking with a Cast Member about the booking and let them know you'll be celebrating an anniversary. It might be helpful to know that some restaurants don't show availability for a large group, but may be able to accommodate you if you call and speak with a Cast Member.

    Another option you have is to work with the amazing Cast Members at Disney Meetings & Events to plan a custom celebration. This service opens the door to even more Magical options around the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Ben, I hope this helps as you start planning for that celebration that's been fifty years in the making. Best wishes for an unforgettable vacation. Come on back and see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you might have,
