    Any suggestions for approx 24 people celebrating a special birthday,either lunch or dinner?

    Hello Margaret!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love celebrating special dates at the Walt Disney World Resort and a special dining experience is the perfect way to bring a large party together.

    I have recently had dinner with a large group at 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and we had the most amazing time! This is an all-you-care-to-enjoy family-style restaurant so the food is brought to your table. In my opinion this is the best type of meal for large parties because you can stay together, talk and enjoy yourselves without all members of the party having to get up to get food at a buffet. Dinner at 'Ohana is absolutely delicious.

    If you enjoy buffets, I believe Biergarten Restaurant is a great option. The beautiful atmosphere at a Bavarian biergarten at night with a live band is perfect for large parties. I also like the idea of celebrating at a fun dinner show like Mickey's Backyard BBQ or Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue.

    Make your reservation as soon as possible online or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app. If you have difficulties, please call (407) 939-3463 to speak to a Cast Member. With large parties, I also recommend booking at earlier times because sometimes it's easier to find a table for the group. 

    I hope this helps you plan an unforgettable birthday celebration! Please stop by real soon with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
