    I have 5day park hopper tickets but we're staying for 7. What is there to do w/o tickets to the parks? And can we make reservations to restaurants when the park hopper is done and we have 2 days left at WDW?

    Hi Margaret,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    There is so much to do at Walt Disney World that I think you will find that filling your days without theme park tickets will be easy. One great place to explore is Disney Springs. This newly re-imagined area is home to great shopping, dining and entertainment. My family especially likes to spend time at Splitsville Luxury Lanes, where you can bowl and enjoy some delicious food. For a truly unique experience, head to the Boathouse Restaurant and consider taking a ride in one of their American Amphicars.

    Another possibility is to do some mini-golfing, either at Winter Summerland or Fantasia Gardens. From Fantasia Gardens, you are very close to Disney's BoardWalk, which is another great area to explore, complete with great dining locations and the opportunity to rent a surrey bike.

    You are more than welcome to dine at Walt Disney World on days when you do not have theme park admission; however, you will not be able to go into a theme park to eat on those days. For your non-park days, consider restaurants at Disney Springs, Disney's BoardWalk, and the many Walt Disney World resort hotels.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Margaret. Let us know if you have any further questions!
