    Hello! If we have dinner reservations in Epcot one night but we have one park per day tickets, dos that mean we can only go to Epcot that day? Do we have to purchase park hopper tickets if we just wanted to go for dinner? Thanks!

    Hiya, Carol! 

    I could spend my entire Walt Disney World vacation just enjoying the many amazing restaurants there are at Epcot. There's never enough time to eat at all the places I want to try.

    If you have a Walt Disney World ticket that allows you to do one park per day, and you have a dinner reservation at Epcot, you will need to use one of your admission days to enter Epcot. With the one park per day passes, you can only visit one theme park per day. Your other option is to add the park hopper feature. With this feature, you can hop from one park to any of the others, as often as you wish over the course of the day. 

    Don't forget to make your Epcot dining reservations as soon as you know what your plans will be. Some restaurants are quite popular, and you'll want to make sure you get a table at the dining experience of your choice.

    Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World.
