We are trying to plan a big group of 20 people kids and adults, any advice??

When there is a big group there is a lot of hem hawing on what to do next. My suggestion is if that happens take charge. Decide where to go and start walking there. If you start walking everyone else will too. Have fun!! - Bassplayerswife  1348.6 #162 3:22PM

We did a group of, I think, 13-14 once.  Do an email chain or something of that nature and try to determine what everyone's "must-dos" are, and whether or not you want to all stay together for some of them, or whether you're ok going going separate ways.  Consider that the ride pics can be great mementos, and you might want to have all the kids together for at least one or two of them.  DEFINITELY have people look at menus online ahead of time and decide what places are preferences for food, and again, decide what meals should be done as a group.  You can waste a lot of time wandering around trying to figure out food if it's not thought about ahead of time, especially with picky eaters (I'm one of those 😂 so I know).  I'm guessing you'll probably want to do a character breakfast as a big group, as that would be a great opportunity for nice pics and fun times together.  Based on that the info from your discussions and email chains, you'll probably need to just take charge and create a loose daily schedule with generalities and make a few dining reservations.  You should also think about high-demand rides and organizing getting FPs.  It was hard to get our whole group up and in the gates in the morning, and we had to hold of on getting FPs for some things that we wanted to ride together (you have to be in the gates to activate your ticket in order to get an FP).  By the time everyone got in, the return time for Space was pretty late, so that threw things off for us.  And I agree: if you find the group dithering, just start walking and everyone will follow.  Keep in mind that people get indecisive if they're hungry, thirsty, or tired, so sometimes the solution is sitting down and having a snack 😂 - Spoonful_O_Sugar  725.0 #333 8:30PM
Run away!!! Run far away😱😱😱😱😱 just kidding, just make sure you tell yourself you can't please everyone. Set up several events like a lunch, a meet and photo and riding a couple attractions. But don't be sad when the others change plans to do other things. Plan lots of free time and your group will stick together at the group things better 😀 - secretagentangel  16305.8 #5 8:59PM

I just booked our flights to Disney World. Jan 11th to the 17th. I've never been! What do I need to do, see, eat??? (I'd ask in the Disney World page, but I don't know them like I know you! And I'm a little shy.)

What kind of dining experience are you looking for? I like the Sci-Fi diner at Hollywood Studios. - EmperorsHandLelundrial  1112.4 #209 4:09PM
Hi, WDW is huge and there is a lot to do , it might be a little tough getting any reservations in such a short time and you definitely need them at WDW , be our guest at Magic kingdom does a delicious quick serve just get on line early , spend lots of time at Epcot , so much to discover there, biergarten in Germany is a fantastic place to eat and is never really booked up , hope you have fun and don't hesitate to ask anything on the WDW , they are always ready to help  - tracsant  1599.6 #5 4:17PM

My hubby said he got reservations at Blue Bayou so I didn't dress up. Now I'm feeling very under dressed. Where am I?

I love that he surprised you, but I would probably try to beat him too. At least they let you in though. So he might not have realized you would want to dress up.  - warchanted  193.6 #2255 4:13PM

Many of you have probably seen this but since they are doing construction on Penny Arcade they are directing traffic behind the scenes. This is the entrance to the back of the top of the Fire Station.

Last night my hubby (captain hook) took me to the Blue Bayou for my birthday it was our first time! We loved the Filet Mignon and Cajun Salmon, but the gumbo IMO was gross. Get the salad! We will defiantly be going back.

If anything is sub-par in such an expensive place, send it back with no guilt whatsoever. In this case, getting the salad would have been appropriate. - DizKahuna  334.0 #847 1:01PM

I am running the Tinker Bell Half and we are either booking The Grand or The Disneyland Hotel. (Which you can't book until July 11 fyi) Would you book the room as soon and they open or has anyone noticed prices tend to change the closer it gets?

At the new store in Utah, I think my daughter likes Minnie don't you!? Also- *UTAH PEOPLE* They are doing an opening ceremony and a Minnie & Mickey meet and greet this Sat. I hope to see some MW there!

I loved the video, I can't wait to see her freak out on Saturday when she meets them in person.

Ok I thought there was a Disneyland park crowd index chart somewhere. I am planning our next trip and would like see how busy it is at that time of year (January 2013). Last year we went in March and I won't do that again. Any ideas or am I just plain crazy :)

well crap that just means i'm crazy..... I found this chart in case someone else is in the same boat. - Knik  456.9 #569 4:40PM
It will be crowded...very crowded..but I doubt it will reach capacity. But, that's what they said about leap day too. - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #230 4:41PM
I should have said Crowd Index instead of capacity.... - Knik  456.9 #569 4:45PM
It's my understanding that Leap day went over capacity. I heard they lost count at some point (ended up at 100k), then stopped selling general admission tickets and only let AP holders in. So of course everyone just started upgrading to AP's. - Mickey74  3791.6 #49 4:47PM
Really?! Wow! That would make sense on why they let me get in after I got the capacity message. - MermaidWithShears  1025.8 #230 4:54PM
Oh we're not going over Leap Day sometime in Jan. 2013 here is another chart incase any one wants it for the future. Oh and thanks for your responses, i should have been more clear.
