Booking our family trip next week for summer 2013! I went last year with my wife and now this year we are bringing my son who will be 20 months at that time, my sister and her kids, and both my brothers and their families. And of course mom and pops! Party of 16...any suggestions for large parties this size? Do you recommend splitting up in the park or experiencing everything together? Can't wait to go again!

That's awesome!! I've never gone with a large group of family. But I would recommend doing both, doing certain things together, but put some time aside for just you, your wife, and son. What wonderful memories you all are going to create! Happy planning! :-) - JessiBelle22  78.4 #81 2:29PM
I would say pick places to meet up at for planning and taking pictures but everyone probably wants to do different things and with lines it will be easier. Especially for the nighttime shows you probably would like the whole group together so meet earlier to get great spots together. - sweetiepie  22.0 #154 2:44PM
I'd split up some.  Even our small family of 4 splits up at MK because of the age ranges we don't find some of us waiting while other ride rides, we just all go do what we want (in pairs).  We don't split up at AK because there really is no need.  We split up for Epcot except world showcase.  We also split up in HS some, but stick together for Shows. - DizneyGirl  851.9 #7 3:01PM
I say split. We went in '09 with 20 of us and it was not a good time. Everyone was trying to stay together but not agreeing where to go. If we ever did it again, I would go seperate and meet up for lunch or pics! - BodinFabFive  26.3 #140 3:51PM
Went with a group of 30! Definitely split up!!!! We usually picked a mutual park them divided up inside. Some days our family would say we're eating at this place at this time, you can join if you'd like. We planned one big family meal, but with 30 of us it ended up pizza in our OKW Villa. We had a pretty large group of 13 at 50s prime time. Just be sure to make reservations. One day after a family photo we all had matching shirts on. CMs made all kinds of comments. "hey the Edson Family, we've been seeing you guys everywhere!" - timonT  396.7 #19 3:51PM
Thanks everyone for your suggestions!!! - lsolis210  3.3 #946 4:10PM
Wow, that sounds like quite a group! I will be visiting with a group of 5 next month. When we travel in groups we usually spend some time together and some time apart. Maybe plan to visit the same park on the same days but know you will be splitting up throughout the day. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1179.0 #4 4:12PM
