    Hi if I want to eat at magic Kingdom do I have to be going to the park for that day?

    Hip hip hooray, Jeanette! I'm so glad you found your way to planDisney today and would be more than happy to help.

    You must have both valid theme park admission and a theme park reservation at a given theme park in order to dine at any restaurant located inside its gates. This means you would either need to be visiting Magic Kingdom Park with a ticket and theme park reservation specific to Magic Kingdom Park on the day you wish to dine there or Park Hop over to Magic Kingdom Park from another theme park to dine there after Park Hopping hours begin at 2:00 p.m. (a theme park ticket with the Park Hopper Option is required in order to visit more than one park in a day).

    If this isn’t possible for you, perhaps consider making a dining reservation at one of the restaurants at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, or Disney’s Contemporary Resort instead. Many of the dining venues at these Disney Resort hotels offer fantastic views of Magic Kingdom Park that will make you feel as if you’re right smack dab in the middle of the magic there. Your best bets for a spectacular view are California Grill, ‘Ohana, and Narcoossee's.

    Jeanette, I hope this information proves useful. Please stop by planDisney again if you have further questions. Have a magical day, and, remember, tomorrow is just a dream away!
