    Hello, I have a dinning/park pass question. On one day we plan to have Lunch at Diamond Horseshoe and for dinner we would like to go to Akershus Royal Banquet Hall (all on the same day). Do i need a park place to go to both places?

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Danielle!

    Looks like you are planning to enjoy some fantastic restaurants during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I think you are asking about the theme park tickets required to visit the restaurants you are choosing to enjoy. I see you are going to experience the new dining experience at The Diamond Horseshoe in Liberty Square at Magic Kingdom. I think its hearty, all-you-care-to-enjoy meal is a great choice for lunch during your Disney day to make sure your family has plenty of energy for the afternoon. You will need a valid theme park ticket to enter the park for your lunch. Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is wonderful spot to have a meal with the Disney Princesses. My family went this past fall and we had awesome interactions with all of the Princesses and my little guy even led the royal procession through the restaurant! Since this restaurant is located in Epcot's World Showcase, you will also need to enter Epcot in order to enjoy your taste of Norway for dinner. Since you cannot use two theme park tickets on one day, you need to have the Park Hopper Option added to your theme park tickets to allow you to enjoy multiple theme parks in one day. If you have already purchased your tickets, you can stop at Guest Relations of any Walt Disney World Resort to add the Park Hopper Option to your tickets.

    If you need any additional information or if I misunderstood your question, please come back and ask me another question and I would be happy to help you continue to plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
