    Am I able to join my family for dinner if not purchasing a full day ticket

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ann! I’m so glad you stopped in to see us with your question.

    When it comes to dining at restaurants inside any of the theme or water parks, a valid theme park ticket is required. But don't worry, you have so many restaurant options at Disney Resort hotels that would not require a park ticket!

    Cape May Café at Disney’s Beach Club Resort is a great option for a character breakfast during Minnie’s Beach Bash Breakfast. My oldest daughter loved meeting Minnie and her pals while enjoying her Mickey shaped waffles when we dined there! If you like seafood, it’s also a great option for dinner. Chef Mickey’s at Disney’s Contemporary Resort is also a great character experience for breakfast or dinner. 

    Ann, did you know that you can start making your dining reservations 180 days before your visit? You can do so by visiting the official Disney dining site or you can make reservations right from the palm of your hand on your My Disney Experience app on your smartphone. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you! Feel free to come back to see us anytime with any additional questions you might have. 

    Have a magical visit!
