    Can you eat at one of the restaurants in EPCOT without purchasing a park ticket? Thank you for your time!

    Hi Monica, Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!

    A ticket is required to enter any of the Parks, even if you are just visiting a restaurant. If you have a Park Hopper ticket, it is easy to spend the day in one Park, then switch to Epcot for dinner. However, if you purchase Base Tickets, then you'll need to plan your Advanced Dining Reservations accordingly. Essentially, the day you eat dinner in Epcot will be your Epcot day, your Fantasmic dinner package would be your Hollywood Studios day and so on. If there are days that you don't plan on visiting a Park, make your Advanced Dining Reservations for a restaurant inside a Resort (like Chef Mickey's, 'Ohana, Boma, etc) or at Downtown Disney. 

    Hope this helps and have a wonderful vacation!
