    I have a day park ticket for Magic Kingdom, but want to buy the character dinning experience at Beauty & The Beast restaurant in Epcot. Can I enter epcot with out a park ticket?

    Hi Nikolaos!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Although you will always need a park ticket to enter any theme park at Walt Disney World Resort for any reason, even just for a dining reservation, I have some good news!  Be Our Guest Restaurant is actually located inside Magic Kingdom Park, so you will already be there, and do not need a ticket for Epcot!  You will love this dining experience.  When you step inside Beast's Castle you will immediately be transported to scenes from Beauty and the Beast.  It is so enchanting.  It is also very popular so please make your dining reservation as soon as possible - you can do this up to 180 days in advance, either online or by using your My Disney Experience mobile app.  If you can't find a reservation for the day you are visiting Magic Kingdom Park, please keep trying.  Many Guests will change or cancel dining reservations, even very close to the date, so I am hopeful you will eventually secure a reservation.   

    You can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at Be Our Guest Restaurant, and if you choose a dinner reservation there is a very good chance you can meet with Beast afterwards.  He loves meeting his Guests, and really enjoys a photo opportunity.  That handsome smile!!

    If you love Beauty and the Beast, there is a fantastic live stage show at Disney's Hollywood Studios that I highly recommend if you are visiting that theme park.  The show lasts 25 minutes and you can see it at various times throughout the day.  FastPass+ reservations are available, or you can check the Entertainment Schedule when you arrive at the park, and use the standby line for a time that suits you.  

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
