    Jackie from FL Asked

    My cousin is getting married in Orlando at the beginning of Dec and we will have about 20 - 25 family members that will be going over to the Magic Kingdom one day. What advice for going with a large group? Can we set up a place to have lunch together?

    Hi, Jackie!

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel; what a great question!

    Congratulations to your cousin on the December wedding; what a special day, surrounded by family and friends!

    If a large group would like to meet up at Disney's Magic Kingdom, take a few steps to make your touring easier. First, look at your dining options in and around Magic Kingdom Park. Call Disney Dining at (407) WDW-DINE and see if a Cast Member can help you secure a lunch location for the number in your party. Be sure to mention that restaurants that are adjacent to the monorail may be an option as well, as this will open up available locations tremendously, without making your travel there too difficult. Remember that advanced dining reservations open 180 days in advance, so the sooner you secure a reservation, the better. Of course, if you are unable to get a Table-Service reservation, you may be able to find ample seating for a larger party at either Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn & Cafe or Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe, both of which offer lots of seats.

    Next, be sure to add each other to your Family & Friend lists in My Disney Experience. This will enable you to see each others' plans, coordinating your FastPass+ times, dining options and even photos if you purchase Memory Maker (with that many in your party, it's a must-do!)

    Send more questions as you plan, Jackie; we love to help!
