    Hello. We got the DDP and was wondering if I needed to make reservations for dining at only restaurants in the park that we are visiting that day or can we go between parks for meals even though we didn't get park hopper tickets? Thanks

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am a big fan of the Walt Disney World Dining Plan.  There is no better way to keep your food budget in check.  You made a great choice by adding the Disney Dining Plan.  

    For any dining experience inside a WDW Theme Park, park admission is required.  Since you do not have the Park Hopper Option, I would plan on selecting a dining experience that is in a park you are planning to visit.  Please note that there are many dining experiences at many of the WDW Resorts.  You are more than welcome to enjoy your meal away from the parks and return to the park you visited earlier in the day.  

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  Looking for some great Disney souvenirs?  Find them on the Shop Disney Parks App.  There are so many great items to choose from.  Shopping has never been this easy and so much fun!

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
