    Dining with a group of 20?

    Okay, in the future, I'm going to be making a dinner reservation for somewhere outside of the Disney parks (one of the hotels on property) for a group of twenty people. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas? I know I've dined with a group of 30 at 1900 Park Faire, and that was a bit loud. I was wondering if anyone had been anywhere else that was highly accomodating toward a group of twenty.

    Any suggestions would be more than welcome.

    Right now, the idea is possibly Ohana's at the Polynesian, however we are wondering if there is any place else that would be better.

    I can't wait to call and book that reservation, where ever we do end up.

    I would think that Boma might be a good idea as well. Or maybe even Alfredo's at Epcot.

    It has to be out of park, since not everyone will have a Disney Pass. But Boma may not be a bad idea... I know we have a few picky eaters though.

    'Ohana sounds like a really good choice, because of the way the food is served, but you might need to check the menu with those picky eaters you mentioned. Kona Cafe also could be nice, and much quieter. Buffet restaurants like Chef Mickey's are great for variety (even Boma has something for everyone), but it means everyone in your group will constantly be getting up and down for more food. Boatwrights at Port Orleans might be more quiet, but can't say if it is more accommodating to a large group or not.

    Good luck!

    Boma has a huge selection of food and I'm sure that everyone will find something that they would like. They have a good selection of different roasted meats and you can even find things like chicken fingers or spaghetti and meat balls! And the dessert "pod" is amazing! I was just trying to think of places that would most likely be able to accomodate 20 of you together or at least right next to each other. We ate there in June as a party of 12 and they fit us all at one long table.

    I have done Artist Point at the Wildernes Lodge with 20 people, but service while good, was a little slow because of the size. 'Ohana or any buffet style place will be better

    When we made our ADR's for Ohana this past June we couldn't even get seating together at one table for a party of 9. They had to split us up. Even though we weren't too far apart....we weren't actually dining together.
