Restaurants for a LOT of people?

If you've got a big party--8 or more--what are the best restaurants to accommodate you? And is it hard to get reservations?

Boma has tables that can easily accommodate 8 to 10 without them having to rearrange the place.

I had a group of 24 last September at Kona Cafe, and we were divided into two separate tables next to each other. It just wasn't convenient to have that big of a group at one table. But with 8, I would think most of the restaurants at WDW can accommodate that easily at one table.

Boma always seems to have large groups. Good suggestion. 'Ohana usually has some large groups in the middle too.

Kelly, is the space in the back you're referring to the "Wine Room?" We were asking our waiter about it last time we were there.

Unless they've changed it, there are two private dining rooms at the California Grill, holding from 20 to 30 people each. When you get off the elevator, you take a left rather than going into the main dining area on the right.

They're on either side of the hallway as you head onto the observation area on that side of the building.

I've actually experienced a large party coming out of one of those rooms and flooding the viewing area for Wishes so I'm not sure how I didn't remember that. I'm dumb sometimes.

I had a group of about 25-30 in one of those rooms once. That was pushing it a bit, size wise.

The last time I ate at the Cali Grille there were over 10 of us. We went in and went all the way to the left. There is a room with just a few tables in it. The views are of WL, AK, and Epcot. It was very nice and alittle quieter than the main dining. But I have also eaten in that back area with only a table of 4 and I have also had the pleasure of eating in the main dining area with an MK view. I love Cali Grille and have not had a bad meal there yet.

Really like the Boma and 'Ohana suggestions. I imagine calling 90 days out is the way to go!

Yes ma'am! I would highly suggest it! When did you say you're going? Will you have free dining?

I find Boma much easier to get ADRs for than Ohana.
