    Can you use the dining plan in a park you did not enter for the day? For instance, I am planning to be at Magic Kingdom 2 days, but want to dine at other locations than just Magic Kingdom, and I am staying in Epcot at the Carribean. How does this work?

    Hi Michelle!

    Walt Disney World restaurants are near and dear to my heart! Picking where to eat is one of our family's favorite activities. We all have our favorites, and it is always so difficult to decide!

    With the Disney Dining Plan, you are welcome to select any restaurant at Walt Disney World which accepts your plan. The options are nearly endless: you can choose from restaurants in each of the theme parks, in the resorts or at Disney Springs. You're welcome to mix it up among locations. For instance, on your first Magic Kingdom day, you may choose to have lunch in the Beast's Castle at Be Our Guest Restaurant and then ride the monorail to the Polynesian Resort to grab pulled pork nachos at Capt. Cook's (quick service) or sushi at the Kona Cafe (table service). Your dinner choice will simply depend on the dining plan you've selected: Quick Service for faster, more casual meals or the Disney Dining Plan for a mix of quick service and sit-down meals.

    One thing to remember: If you choose restaurants in two different theme parks (for instance Animal Kingdom and Epcot), you will need to have the Park Hopper option on your park tickets. For all other locations, like resorts and Disney Springs, there are no special ticket requirements.

    I hope this helps and be sure to let the Disney Parks Moms Panel know if we can help you pick out those special dining experiences!
