    If I have a dinner reservation at a restaurant in World Showcase do I need to pay admission to Epcot?

    Hello Lori,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. May will be here before you know it, and so will your magical vacation!

    There are so many fantastic restaurants to choose from in EPCOT's World Showcase, it's no wonder that you are hoping to make reservations there. Whether you are sharing small plates at Spice Road Table, celebrating Oktoberfest at Biergarten Restaurant, or enjoying French cuisine at Chefs de France, you are sure to have a delicious experience. You will need a park ticket and reservation for EPCOT to enjoy any of the World Showcase Restaurants. Another option if you are planning to spend a day in a different park would be to add the Park Hopper Option to your existing tickets. That way you could start your day in one park and end it strolling around EPCOT, enjoying a meal, listening to live music from Garden Rocks Concert Series, and watching Harmonious to finish your evening.

    If you are just looking for a nice meal with some international flavors, there are several wonderful options in Disney Resort Hotels and in Disney Springs. Jiko - The Cooking Place in Animal Kingdom Lodge, Topolino's Terrace in Disney's Riviera Resort, and Morimoto Asia in Disney Springs are just a few that come to mind.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical and delicious vacation!
