    On the day we check out from animal kingdom lodge we have a reservation at Hollywood &Vine in Hollywood Studios, this is the day we are leaving, can one enter a park just to eat?

    Unfortunately, any time a guest enters a park's turnstile, valid park admission is needed even if the guest is only entering to dine.

    All WDW theme park restaurants require park admission in order to dine at the restaurant. The only exception is the Rainforest Cafe at the Animal Kingdom which also offers an exterior entrance.

    In order to dine at Hollywood & Vine on your last day, you may go to Hollywood Studios just to eat but you'll need park admission to be admitted.

    If you are looking for a character meal outside the theme parks, I would suggest 'Ohana at the Polynesian Resort, 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian, Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary or the Cape May Cafe at the Beach Club.

    It's not fun having to plan your departure day but a character meal is a great way to cherish a few more Disney moments!
