Default Help Me Make the best choice

We will have a lunch party of 10 (2 non-ticketed people on a day the rest of us are going to EPCOT. We have 2 ADRs at Beaches and Cream for 6 and 4. The other alternative is Ale and Compass, which, looking at the menu, doesn't appeal to us. Can you talk me out of eating the yummy food, not to mention the desserts at B&C and instead be reasonable regarding seating together (and thus eating at Ale & Compass).

Nope! �� There is no way that all 10 people can socialize with each other being so far apart around a 10 person table so you might as well break it up and get better food!!

I had a party of 11 in B&C. They put all the middle tables together to make one long table. It was great. Get there a little early and tell them you want to be seated as close together as possible.

Thank you for this! Knowing it can be done makes a huge difference.

You might not find that B&C is a good choice for a 'long-ish' meal. So small, you may be rushed out.
How about Big River Brewery?

We found it to be the opposite with pretty darn slow service when we went the last couple of times

One thing I'll give Disney, I've never felt rushed at a Disney restaurant. In fact I find the opposite. Empty tables just sitting there, while people are waiting to be seated. They just follow the robo-seater and don't sweat it.
