    My family and I will be arriving at the Music Resort on Sept 21st . I was wondering if there are any table service restaurants that we could go to that don't require park admission.

    There are many restaurants outside of the theme parks. However, you will want to make an Advance Dining Reservation to secure your preferred meal time.

    The hotels that offer table service dining are:
    Animal Kingdom Lodge, Beach Club, Yacht Club, Boardwalk, Caribbean Beach, Coronado, Contemporary, Grand Floridian, Polynesian, Wilderness Lodge, Old Key West, Port Orleans Riverside, Saratoga Springs, as well as the Swan and Dolphin hotels.

    Downtown Disney offers table service restaurants such as the Rainforest Cafe. The Animal Kingdom's Rainforest Cafe can be accessed without using park admission as it has a separate entrance for dining.

    To view menus, visit and look at the dining section.
