    If we elect not to buy the park hopper ticket option, are we limited to only dining at our hotel, park or outside the park for that single day? We cannot visit another park for an evening dinner, for instance???

    Hello, Laurie!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    With every restaurant located inside any of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, admission is required. For example, if you begin your day at the Magic Kingdom by utilizing your admission ticket, the Magic Kingdom will be "your park" for the day.  Now let's just say that you scheduled a dining reservation inside Epcot on that same day.  The ticket you used earlier in the day will not allow you access into Epcot and they will not allow you entrance just because you have a reservation.  You would need to purchase an additional ticket to gain entrance.  My advice would be to plan your dining reservations around your park visits for each given day.  I hope this was not too confusing. 

    Thank you so much for visiting the Mom Panel.  Please join us again real soon should any new questions or concerns pop-up.  We are always ready to help our guests plan the vacation of a lifetime.  May your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation be filled with many new and MAGICAL memories!

    ~Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON"!~
