    2 years ago my family and I (DH, DS, DD and my parents) had such a great experience at Sci-Fi Dine-In that it was the only restaurant that my kids requested for our upcoming WDW trip. The last time, there were just 6 of us so we fit perfectly in one car but this time, my brother and SIL will be joining us. Has anyone eaten at Sci-Fi with a party of 8? I am wondering if we will be able to sit in cars or if we will have to sit at the tables that are in the back of the restaurant. I know there is at least one car that has a table in it and not rows of bench seats but from what I could tell from the pictures I've seen, it only seats 6 and is more designed for wheelchair accessibility.

    Any help is appreciated! :)

    We sat at a table for 4 and the 'car' we were in had another table for 4 in it. You don't face the screen. But you can still see it. But I know they will tell larger parties they may be split up. We made a ressie at the Plaza once and they told us we might be split up. We were a table of 3! I don't know if it ever happens but I want you to be prepared. JIC.

    They'll split you into 2 adjacent cars if you're willing to do that.

    We were a party of 8 when we went there and we were put into two adjacent cars so there wasn't a problem with breaking up the party.

    How small/young are your kids? We easily fit our party of 7 in one car when our kids were a little younger. We probably could have squeezed 8 in if he had to.

    Thanks for your answers!

    We wouldn't have a problem splitting the party. I am most concerned about being in a car. The kids would be disappointed if they don't get to sit in a car and my bro and sil would not get to experience Sci-Fi properly, IMO.

    DS is 10 and DD is 5 and both are tall. 2 years ago we could have fit 7 in a single car but we've all grown (some up and some out! ;)) so I don't think 8 in a car this year would work.

    Thanks again for your help!
