    Can families make reservations/eat at a Disney hotel even if they aren't staying there? Goofy's kitchen for example...

    Hey there, Kari! Thanks for trusting the Disney Parks Moms Panel to help you plan your trip to the Disneyland Resort!

    All restaurants located in the Disneyland Resort Hotels are available to all Guests, regardless of whether you are staying at an on-site hotel or not. In fact, you don't even need a theme park ticket to enjoy a meal in one of the hotels or in the Downtown Disney District. So absolutely feel free to book a super fun character meal at Goofy's Kitchen for your upcoming visit. You can meet characters while you dine for either breakfast or dinner at Goofy's Kitchen and the amount of different food options in the buffet is truly incredible. Advanced reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 60 days in advance online or by calling (714) 781-3463.

    If you will be driving to the hotel, you can park for up to three hours free of charge with validation in the hotel parking lot while you dine. You might want to have your dining reservation confirmation number on-hand when you arrive to park. If you plan to enjoy the rest of the Disneyland Resort either before or after your meal, you will need to move you car to theme park parking during that time. 

    I hope this helps. Please return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have!
