    We are arriving the last week of September. We want to make reservations for certain restaurants. We do not have park hopper. Do we need to go to that particular park the day we have the reservation?

    You do need to use a valid park admission ticket to have a meal at the restaurants that are inside the parks. This means that if you do not have a Park Hopper ticket (which allows you to visit more than one park per day), you will need to do your park touring each day at the same park where you have your meals.

    Another alternative would be to schedule some of your meals at the WDW resorts or Downtown Disney. These restaurant locations do not require any sort of park admission. This would give you a bit more flexibility in deciding which park to visit each day.

    Some great meals that are not in the parks are:

    - Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary
    - Whispering Canyon Cafe at the Wilderness Lodge
    - Boma and Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge
    - Flying Fish at the Boardwalk
    - Ohana at the Polynesian
    - Portobello at Downtown Disney
    - Cape May Cafe at the Beach Club
    - and many more!

    Have a wonderful stay at Walt Disney World!
