    Our extended family has reservations at several restaurants during our Christmas stay. Those meals may be the only times my 84 year old mother joins the rest of the family. What type of park passes will she need? Thanks

    I am assuming that the meal reservations you are referring to are for restaurants located inside of a theme park, Sharon.  Unfortunately, guests are not permitted to enter a theme park for dining reservations without a valid admission ticket; if your mother wishes to dine with the family, she will be required to present a valid ticked for admission.  Her ticket doesn't need to have the bells and whistles (park hopping options, etc) unless your plans will require her to visit more than one park per day.  If the budget is tight and your mom would rather skip out on purchasing park admission simply for dining, perhaps you could book some dining reservations outside of the theme parks; some of the resort hotel restaurants are among the most popular choices.  Good luck!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
