    Any suggestions for a family reunion type gathering (9 adults/2 kids) for a meal or coffee/drinks/dessert after 9pm at DS Springs or a resort? A good get-to-know each other spot that won't rush us. Prefer no reservations. Other ideas welcome too

    Hi Nicole!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! This visit is going to be so much fun for you and your family! I have a few fun ideas, but warning, you might have to save a seat for one more in case I crash your party.

    Disney Springs is a great location as it's open late and easy for everyone to get to. First up is bowling at Splitsville Luxury Lanes. The food is great and some can bowl while others are deep in catching up. Reservations for a lane are always a good idea, but you could put your name on the list when you walk in and wait for your time to pass in the dining room. Another unique space with room for your group is the rooftop beverage bar at the Coca-Cola Store. Floats, pure sugar bottled flavors, adult beverages, even Coke tasting trays where you can sample 16 flavors from around the world. One tray even includes floats!

    Of locations at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, I'd suggest Trader Sam's Tiki Terrace if you'd like drinks where the kids are welcome. This outdoor space at Disney's Polynesian Resort Village has a great island-themed menu with plenty of room to sit. Disney's BoardWalk, a pier promenade, features lounges with live entertainment and fantastic dining options including Ample Hills Creamery. (They too also offer a build-your-own tasting tray of multiple ice cream flavors.) And should you need an indoor option, I personally love the relaxed quick-serve Contempo Cafe at Disney's Contemporary Resort. You can visit and watch the monorail go by!

    We'll See You Real Soon, Nicole!
