    What restaurants accommodate a large party. I am planning a Dec trip for 13 to celebrate our 40th anniversary - ages ranging from 2 - 62 ! :)

    Hi Kim!  Choosing your dining locations is fun but also challenging as you try to please everyone's culinary tastes.

    The Disney Dining options are numerous whether you are looking for something in one of the four theme parks or at a resort. All of the Disney restaurants can accommodate a large group but some cannot put everyone at one table. You will see this when you try making reservations on line and they will not accept a large group.

    I highly recommend you call to make your dining reservations as they can assist you if you must break up the number. You might need a reservation for 6 persons and one for 7 persons at the same time. They can do this where you cannot do this on line as they will only allow you to make one reservation for the same time. This was something that happened to me for a fall vacation for my family of 12.

    Please understand that I highly urge you not to worry about sitting all at the same table. The restaurants will try to seat you side by side but large tables are far and few between. We have found that sitting at two tables makes it easier to converse with more family members then if you were all at one table. You will never talk to the other end or even know they are there. We like to play a game where we draw names as to who will sit together at one table. It is a fun way to break up always sitting next to the same person and really having good conversation with your family group.
