    Planning for a group of 16 adults to visit Magic Kingdom for one day in June. Would love to know if there are tips for planning for a group? Also suggestions for how to save money on parking as we will not be staying on Disney property.

    Welcome to planDisney Suzan!

    Wow, with 16 in your group you have your very own Mickey Mouse Club! I think matching shirts are definitely needed!

    With this big of a travel party, I think the best thing to remember is to be flexible. You all need to be "okay" knowing you can't do everything together all day long. I would plan to arrive together, get that perfect family picture in front of Cinderella Castle, then enjoy one or 2 attractions as a group. I suggest it's a small world followed by the TTA PeopleMover. Then, split up to do your own thing until lunch. Try a Quick Service location such as Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe or Pinocchio Village Haus so each small group can order their own meals then you can all sit together and make afternoon plans. 

    After lunch, I would do the same thing, heading to Carousel of Progress or Hall of Presidents. Break off again, then meet for dinner. If you would like a group dinner, try to get 2 Dining Reservations for 8 people each at someplace like Crystal Palace (a buffet) where everyone can choose foods they like. 

    For the grand finale of the night, plan a spot to meet to view Disney Enchantment. Meet about 30 minutes prior, bring snacks to share, and enjoy the show. I think having some break-off time throughout the day from each other will make it easier as everyone is not going to be going at the same speed and wanting breaks at same time. But, do what works best for the majority of the pack!

    As far as parking, there is a daily fee to park in the theme park parking lots. You can see if your off-site property offers any transportation options. Other than that, you can try to take as few cars as possible, but there's just no getting around paying for parking if not staying at a Disney Resort hotel. 

    Wishing you and your magical travel party a wonderful day in the Magic Kingdom!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
