    Arriving at Disney late afternoon and would like to visit DTD for dinner. I was wondering if we would need a 'park pass' to enter. Planning a big visit on a small budget, I didn't want to have to buy an extra day pass if it weren't needed.

    Hi Karen!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Downtown Disney (soon to be called Disney Springs) is a true gem for guests that are visiting Walt Disney World.  There is NO admission ticket required, yet it offers so much in the forms of entertainment, shopping, dining, etc.  

    We take a visit to Downtown Disney on each of our trips.  It's a great way to experience Disney magic without additional cost.  (although my husband disagrees with this, because it always seems to "cost" him something with all of my shopping!)

    I hope this helps you plan your days!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
