    If we make a dining reservation in Epcot park on any given day, do we need to have the park reservation to Epcot on the same day or can we use our Park Hopper ticket to get into Epcot if we reserved admission to a different park already same day?

    Greetings, Sandy! I'm glad you stopped by planDisney. Your Walt Disney World Resort visit this fall is sure to be fabulous, and I love how you're planning ahead. EPCOT is fast becoming my favorite destination, so I'm happy to discuss securing a delicious meal there. 

    It sounds like you have the Park Hopper Option on your theme park tickets, which offers flexibility in your plans. Remember that you can scan into a second park after 2:00 p.m., so I suggest booking breakfast and lunch in the park where you have a theme park reservation. But after 2:00, you could schedule a meal at any other theme park. Remember to allow enough time to get to the second park when booking your dining.

    Another thing to remember is that theme parks could reach capacity before 2:00, and in that case, you won't be allowed to enter that second park. This rarity typically only happens around the holidays, but I did want to mention it. You shouldn't have any problems in October.

    Since you're within the 60-day booking window for dining, you can go online and start booking meals now. You should be able to reserve meals at any park, no matter which theme park you have reserved. I'm sending pixie dust, salt, and pepper to help you snag some incredible dining!

    I hope you enjoy this year's EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. After your dinner, my tip is to head to the World Showcase and catch the Eat to the Beat Concert Series. These live musical events are always upbeat and a great way to cap off your night. 

    I hope you have a practically perfect visit, and please stop by planDisney anytime, Sandy!

    Magic awaits,
