    Can you dine at Mickey's Grill without passes to the park and is it difficult when in the park to get lunch and dinner without reservations or are there lot's of quick dining options?

    Hi Trina,

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! I think that the restaurant you are speaking of is The Garden Grill in Epcot. The Garden Grill is open only for dinner and features character dining, where you may meet Chip and Dale. Please note that characters are subject to change.

    For any restaurant located within a theme park, you must have valid theme park admission to dine at that restaurant. I also strongly recommend that for any table service dining within a theme park that you do make advance reservations as these locations, especially those with character dining, can be very popular. You can make dining reservations by calling 407-WDW-DINE (407-393-3463) or by going to Disney Dining and making reservations online. If you arrive at a theme park one day and realize that you would like to dine at a table service restaurant and have not yet made reservations, visit Guest Relations. They can help you to find if there is any table service dining available that day.

    There are also lots of quick dining options in all of the the theme parks.I highly recommend Sunshine Seasons. It is in the Land Pavilion, just like the Garden Grill. Sunshine Seasons features a variety of options and fresh foods.

    I hope that this information helps you, Trina. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions!
