    We are a party of 8 - 5 adults with two children under 8 and one child under 2. What restaurants can accommodate us at one table? We are looking for kid friendly. Thinking of Sci-Fi Drive in and also 50's Prime Time restaurants.

    Ma chère Mademoiselle, Deborah, it is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you to planDisney! I am happy to help you with some restaurant choices, and you can put our service to the test!

    It looks like the magical 60-day mark for making your advance dining reservations (ADR in Disney lingo) is quickly approaching! To ensure your experience goes smoothly, have the latest version of the My Disney Experience app and input your credit card information into your account beforehand. I always log in to my account a few minutes before 6:00 AM EST and make my reservations online; however, since you have a larger party, you may need to call Disney Dining Reservations (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463 for help when they open at 7:00 AM EST. Another good planDisney tip is to try eating during off-hours instead of during peak dining times to maximize your chances of securing an ADR.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios has some of the most unique dining opportunities on property. Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant is very popular, making it a tough ADR to get. Also, most of the seating is facing forward towards the movie screen within a vehicle with three bench seats, for a maximum of six people. It's a fun experience, but it probably won't fit your group. Likewise, 50's Prime Time Café is kitschy and makes you feel like you're eating in grandma's kitchen; but 1950's kitchens weren't known for their large tables. You'd probably have better luck getting your group seated together at Hollywood & Vine. This is a character meal, so you'll have the chance to see Minnie and her friends in their Springtime soiree attire (at breakfast, you'll see popular Disney Junior stars). 

    Here are a few of my other favorite recommendations for large groups:
    The Crystal Palace – Magic Kingdom
    Biergarten – Germany Pavilion, EPCOT
    Chef Mickey's – Disney's Contemporary Resort
    'Ohana – Disney's Polynesian Village Resort

    Disney Springs also has some good options for big groups. If you can't find a reservation on My Disney Experience, try booking through Open Table. You'll be able to reserve many of the most popular restaurants this way, such as The BOATHOUSE, Morimoto Asia, and Raglan Road, or you can call these restaurants directly. 

    Lumière and I hope this gives you some food for thought, Deborah! If you have any more questions, please write back. Bon appétit!
