    Hi, because the character dining can take up to an hour for a meal, we were thinking of going to Cinderella's Castle on a non park day. We are staying 8 days but plan to buy a 4 day pass, but will we need a ticket to get into MK for the dinner?

    Hi Erica!

    Thank you for submitting your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Dining at Cinderella's Royal Table is an amazing experience! I can understand why you would want to experience it on a non-park day! Unfortunately, you must have valid park admission in order to dine at Cinderella's Royal Table.  The reason is because there is no separate entrance for the restaurant other than walking through the park, so it would be impossible stop someone from experiencing the park after they dine. This is the same with any restaurant located within a Disney Theme Park.

    If I can assist you with any other planning need, please feel free to send me your questions!

    Happy Planning!
