    Can I make dining reservations at a park that I am not visiting that day?

    Hi Cayla!

    There are so many fantastic restaurants to choose from at Walt Disney World!  I love having such a wide variety of cuisines when I'm on vacation to see Mickey Mouse.

    If you are dining at a restaurant that is inside of a park, valid theme park admission is required, so it's best to plan your park dining on days that you will be visiting that particular park. 

    If you have a non-park day and are looking for a great dining, check out some of the delicious restaurants at the many Walt Disney World Resort hotels!  'Ohana in Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is my favorite for dinner.  They feature Polynesian inspired salad and sides with the main course being various meats on skewers that are brought to your table. Everything is served family-style, so you can have as much as you'd like.  Another fun favorite is Whispering Canyon Cafe in Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  The skillet is what I always get for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  It can get a bit rowdy, but it's all in good fun.  Disney Springs is also full of restaurant choices and makes for a great visit on a non-park day.  We often get Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza for lunch and ice cream at Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop for dessert.

    Stop back by if you'd like additional restaurant suggestions or if you have any additional questions we can answer for you.

    Have a magical day!
