    do you have to enter the park and use admission to get to a resort such as the Grand Floridian? We did not purchase park hoppers this year and was trying to plan out dining reservations!

    Hi, Raven!

    Great news!  You do not need a park ticket when dining at any of the wonderful Disney Resorts such as the Grand Floridian.  Feel free to dine at any of the amazing restaurants at the resorts.   Some of my family's favorites are Whispering Canyon at Wilderness Lodge, Chef Mickey's at the Contemporary, and Grand Floridian Cafe at the Grand Floridian.

    You will need to use a park ticket if you are planning to dine inside a theme park, but no tickets are required for dining in the hotels.  Glad to hear you are planning ahead for your dining as many locations book up quickly.   Let me know if you need some dining suggestions!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
