    Can I dine at a WDW restaurant without a theme-park ticket?

    Hello Alison!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am happy to answer your question.

    If you are planning to dine at a restaurant located inside one of the four theme parks you would need a valid theme park admission to take part in that dining experience.  If you dine at a hotel or Disney Springs you do not need a theme park ticket.  Some of my favorite spots outside of the theme parks are Chef Art Smith's Homecomin', Flying Fish and California Grill.   Even though you may not be dining inside a theme park I do suggest you make Advanced Dining Reservations before you arrive.  Some of these restaurants fill up quickly and I wouldn't want you to miss out.

    Enjoy your visit to The Most Magical Place On Earth.   If you have any other questions about your trip we are ready to help you out again.
