    Can you eat at any restaurant in any park or hotel, or do you have to have park passes to the park that the hotels are in? This is our first trip and we are trying to make reservations, and we are confused as to where we can go.

    Hi, Toni! If you want to eat in a restaurant inside one of the theme parks, then you must have an admission ticket to get in for your meal.  If you are wanting to dine at one of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, you are invited to do so without needing any tickets. Because none of resort hotels are inside a theme park (although some are within walking distance of the parks), none will require theme park admission.  You can eat at ANY of the restaurants, in the parks or at the resorts, but you will only need theme park tickets if you actually enter the parks.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
