    Can we have dinner in a park that we do not plan to visit with our allotted park tickets?

    Hi Roberta!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. One of my favorite parts of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is the amazing dining experiences that we will enjoy at all of the wonderful restaurants in the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, hotels and Disney Springs! In order to enjoy a restaurant that is located in a Walt Disney World Resort theme park, you need to have valid theme park admission tickets for that park in order to enter to get to your restaurant reservation. If you have standard theme park admission tickets, then you will need to plan to enjoy restaurants in the theme park where you will be spending your day. If you have added the Park Hopper Option to your tickets, then you are free to "hop" between theme parks, which will allow you to enjoy restaurants in a different theme park than where you will be spending the majority of your day. Keep in mind that you can enjoy all of the restaurants in Walt Disney World Resort hotels and Disney Springs without theme park admission tickets, which will allow you to enjoy some of my favorite dining experiences like 'Ohana and The BOATHOUSE.

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
