    I am visiting the park with A group of 18 is there any discounts with large groups?

    Hi Emma! Welcome to planDisney! It sounds like you are looking to enjoy the Happiest Place on Earth with a big group in tow! You will love making those magical memories together. I remember taking a day to enjoy the magic with 20 close friends. We took up an entire vehicle on Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! and it was a blast! A memory I will never forget!

    Group discounts are typically offered if you are traveling with students or for business meetings and conventions. If either of these applies to your group, then you are in luck! Reaching out to Disney Imagination Campus is a great place to start if you are looking to plan field trips or unique educational opportunities for students. For businesses, give the Guest Services team at (714) 520-7079 a ring, and they will be happy to discuss options with you!

    If you're traveling in with friends and family, while you won't find group discounts on theme park tickets, I recommend looking at the "Offers and Discounts" for promotions on hotel stays. There is currently an offer for 25% off select hotel stays at a Disneyland Resort Hotel from August 7 - September 22, 2022! This offer is subject to change and does not apply to all stays, but worth checking!

    I do have a few tips for you when traveling with a big party:

    When you are looking to book dining reservations, sometimes it can be easier to break the group into smaller parties.  You may end up with slightly different times, but if you arrive together and let the Cast Members know, they will do everything they can to try to seat you close to each other. No guarantees, of course, especially with such a big group, but it never hurts to ask, and they do like to spread a little Disney magic when they can. Downtown Disney District has some larger eateries where you might have some luck getting a reservation for your full group. I recommend reaching out to those restaurants directly!

    If you have added Genie+ to your tickets, you will love skipping those queues and heading straight for those Lightning Lanes. One thing to keep in mind is that you can only make Lightning Lanes for a group of 12 at one time. I suggest breaking your group into two groups of nine and assigning two "leaders" who will have all nine of those tickets linked to their accounts. That way, the leaders can make Lightning Lanes for their group all at one time so you can experience some attractions together. 

    Don't forget that your Genie+ upgrade includes access to unlimited digital downloads of the Disney PhotoPass photos you capture that day! With such a big group, you will definitely want to capture those memories! This includes attraction photos, Magic Shots, and, of course, photos in front of park icons like Sleeping Beauty Castle. Remember when I said we took up a whole vehicle on Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT!? Well, that photo is priceless! I printed a copy for our full group and gave them out during the holidays. Memories that last forever.

    Emma, I hope this was helpful in your planning! If you have any more questions, you know where to find us here at planDisney.

    Magic awaits!
