With a larger group things tend to take longer, this is true at Disney World as well. Plan for more time to travel and eat especially, as orders with a large group will require more time. Go at a pace everyone is comfortable with. Also, if your group plans on watching any shows such as Festival of the Lion King at Animal Kingdom, large groups will want to arrive earlier than usual to find seats together.
Split Into Groups
Just because you came to Disney World together does not mean you have to spend every second together. Consider, splitting up to conquer specific attractions. For example, one group may take the younger ones on Dumbo, while the older ones ride Big Thunder Mountain at Magic Kingdom.
Meet Up For Meals
Splitting up for attractions and then meeting up for meals is a perfect compromise to explore the parks in smaller groups, but still spend time together. For example, have breakfast as a group at your Resort to plan and discuss the day.
Traveling with a larger group to Disney World makes communication even more important. Check in with others in your group for daily plans, reservations and more. The irony with a large group is the children are usually not the ones in a disagreement on plans, its the adults. Communicate with everyone and make everyone feel included, however designate one person that writes down all the plans. The My Disney Experience App makes keeping track of reservations easy.
