Large group dining

I was wondering what suggestions you folks might have for a large group all trying to dine together for a special meal. I am planning a trip for the in-laws 50th and there will be about 20 people in total. Now most meals there is no way to all eat together, mostly for peoples sanity. But i am looking to plan one evening for a special dinner for everyone. I am thinking either in a resort or Disney Springs. The ideas that first come to mind are California Grill or Art Smith. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.



I found an old list with some other options. May not be up to date.

Kona Cafe 18 Polynesian
Olivia’s Cafe 19 Old Key West
Cape May Cafe 20 Beach Club
Chef Mickey’s 24 Contemporary
Turf Club Bar and Grill 24 Saratoga Springs
1900 Park Fare 30 Grand Floridian
Ohana 30 Polynesian
Shutters at Old Port Royale 30 Caribbean Beach
Whispering Canyon Cafe 30 Wilderness Lodge
Spirit of Aloha 49 Polynesian
Hoop Dee Doo 49 Ft. Wilderness

Your best bet is calling DS restaurants like Art Smith directly, and request a room/space. We have had success with very large parties at Terralina Italian.

You can also call special events planning on WDW. They can do a catered dinner in a hotel evevtvdiace at YC/BC, CR, CSR, etc.
