    If we don’t have a park hopper, will our group be able to access a dinning reservation in a separate park same day? Thanks!

    Hello, dear William! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing your great question to us! 

    Dining is a big part of our Disney trips, both to the Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland Resort, so I'm happy to guide you through the menu of options to help you plan for some delicious meals! 

    You will indeed need a ticket with the Park Hopper Option if you intend to visit two Theme Parks on the same day, even if one of the visits only for dining purposes. If you feel like the Park Hopper Option is not ideal for this trip, though, you can plan to dine at the beautiful Disney Resort hotels. 

    Some of the best restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort are inside Disney Resort hotels, and reservations are open to all Guests.

    I created a custom list for you with all the restaurants at Disney Resort hotels that accept dining reservations. You will find a lot of hidden gems on this list

    I love Jiko - The Cooking Place and Sanaa, at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, for example. Disney's Polynesian Village Resort offers Kona Cafe and the joyful 'Ohana, and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa has fantastic options like Cítricos, Grand Floridian Cafe and 1900 Park Fare.

    I'm sure that you'll find the perfect locations for all the meals you want to enjoy in June, William. If you want specific tips for special meals, don't hesitate to come back to us. We love to share advice! 

    May the magic be with you,
