    Hi! Can we make dinner reservations at a restaurant inside a park if we don't have park tickets for that day?

    Hello Susan!

    Wow, it is fantastic that you are planning a Walt Disney World vacation! There are many incredible restaurants in the theme parks, Disney Springs, and the Resorts of Walt Disney World. I love trying a Walt Disney World restaurant I have never been to.

    Yes, when making your Advanced Dining Reservations, if a dining location is inside a theme park, you will need a valid park ticket and a theme park reservation for that particular theme park to dine at that restaurant. If the Advanced Dining Reservation is at Disney Springs or the Walt Disney World Resorts, you don't need a theme park reservation. I typically plan which theme park I want to go to and where I want to eat, and then I get my theme park reservation and make my Advanced Dining Reservations

    I hope your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is filled with magic and incredible dining experiences!
