    We are a party of 7 and would like to know if Garden Grill in Epcot has seating for that size group or if we have to break up the group? If we have to break up the group how can we get 2 tables beside each other?

    Hi Erin,

    Welcome Home!  Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question about dining reservations for a party of 7.  Vacationing with a large group can be such fun, but it does require a little more planning.  I find that when I am traveling with my own large family, if I am flexible and creative, I can usually find a way to make our plans work out.

    The Garden Grill Restaurant in EPCOT is one of the very first character meals that my children experienced when they were young and it has continued to be a favorite of theirs even though my two oldest are living on their own now.  I hope you enjoy it as much as my own family does!

    Erin, The Garden Grill Restaurant only accepts up to 6 Guests in one reservation.  Since you have a party of 7, you will need to make two separate reservations in order to dine in this location.  Your best chance for your two groups to dine close to each other is to check-in early in person (not the app) and ask the Cast Member at the podium if your two groups can be seated close to one another.  Nothing is guaranteed, but they will do their best to make accommodations if possible.  I see that you will be traveling near the holidays and this time of the year is usually busier than average, so your best bet is to check in early so they will have a little extra time to see if they can make the accommodation.

    Have a Magical vacation this Holiday Season at Walt Disney World Resort!  If you have any further questions, please come back and visit us here at planDisney.

    See Ya Real Soon,
