    What if we want to do a character dining in one park but don’t want to use our Disney tickets for that park? Do you have to use your ticket for Epcot and stay in that park for the day to dine at Akershus or can you go to another park after dining?

    Welcome to planDisney, Amanda! I'm so happy to see that you're busy planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort this May! 

    When it comes to visiting restaurants at a theme park, you must purchase a valid theme park ticket to enter the park for your reservation. If you would like to dine at EPCOT, I know you will have the very best time! If you add the Park Hopper Option to your theme park ticket, you will be able to visit EPCOT and "hop" to another park after you're done exploring. 

    To add the option, just visit any theme park ticket window to pay the difference for your tickets and you will be good to go!

    When it comes to table service restaurants, I'm happy to report that you can start making your reservations 60 days ahead of your visit. You have so many character dining choices! There are even a few at Disney Resort Collection hotels that may be just what you're looking for, like Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort or 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, so be sure to take a look at all of your options

    Amanda, I hope I've been helpful. Please feel free to come back to see us if you have any more planning questions. It's always our pleasure to help you with all the details!
