    What is the best think to do as a group of 11adults and children 1 to11

    Hi Rita,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Visiting Walt Disney World with a large group can be so much fun! There are so many different experiences that all of the guests in your group should be able to find something that they love. Let me offer some thoughts on traveling with a large group.

    First, I recommend that for at least part of the day that you split up the group. As a group of 22 guests, you certainly will not all want to do the same things all of the time! You also might want to split up in different ways on different days. For example, if you have smaller family units within the larger group, perhaps on one day the smaller family units spend some time together. Another day, you might wish to split up by age, or by type of attraction that people prefer, such as putting all of the thrill seekers together!

    It might be nice to start and end days with activities together. For example, on a day that you are visiting Magic Kingdom, you could start with everyone riding a calm attraction together such as it's a small world or Dumbo the Flying Elephant. Then, at the end of the day, you could come back together and all meet up at a Fireworks Dessert Party, as many guests enjoy dessert and fireworks!

    You also might want to choose a night to see a dinner show. The Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue, and Mickey's Backyard BBQ are all fun to do with a large group. These also include not only delicious food but great entertainment that often includes audience participation!

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Rita. Have a great time planning your magical vacation!
