    Can I make dinner reservations at for example Cape May Cafe located at one of your hotels even if I do not have an Epcot entrance ticket that day? How do I know whether the restaurant is located outside the parks if I do not have entrance for the day?

    Hi Sofia ~

    I love to dine in different places all over Disney World including those located inside the parks, at resorts, and at Downtown Disney.

    Cape May Café is located at Disney's Beach Club Resort and will not require admission to Epcot. When you select the link for a particular dining location, it will show the location near the upper right corner. For example, if you go to the link for Le Cellier Steakhouse. It will show that it is located in:

    World Showcase
    Valid Park Admission Required

    If you are looking for dining in a particular park, you can go to that park's page and select dining. It will bring up the quick service and table service restaurants for that park. You can do the same thing for any of the Disney World Resort Hotels.

    Theme park admission is required if you are dining at any restaurants inside the parks even if you are only planning to go there to dine. This is also true if you have reservations for things like the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique location in the Magic Kingdom or the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party. Theme park admission is required but not included in the price of the special experiences.

    If you are planning to go to a park just to dine on a particular day but planning to spend most of your day at a different park, make sure you have the Park Hopper Option on your tickets.
