    We are coming to Orlando in April and are unable to do Disney World this time, we would abit of the experience. Can you do Chef disney if no Disney passes and not staying in the hotel or is there any great alternate experiences

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sarah. I'm so glad you stopped by with this great question!

     You'll be pleased to know that even if you aren't able to visit the theme parks this spring, you can absolutely enjoy the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort! A Character Dining Experience at a Resort hotel is a great way to experience some of that unique-to-Disney magic. You don't need theme park tickets or hotel reservations to visit one of these restaurants! I highly recommend Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort. It's the best place to meet the "Fab Five" - Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Pluto! If you'd like to dine with royalty, try Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner at 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. I also love 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. You have lots of delicious and super fun options!

     Be sure to stop by Disney Springs while you're in Orlando. With lots of eclectic Disney shops, you can purchase Disney magic to take home with you! I especially love DisneyStyle at Disney Springs West Side. You may not get a chance to visit the theme parks, but at DisneyStyle you can still take a photo in front of Cinderella Castle or sitting in an iconic teacup. How fun!
