    My family will not be staying at any of the Disney resorts. I wanted to take the kids to dine with the characters. There are a few still available. Do I have to stay at one of the resorts in order to dine with the characters?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Tatiana ~

    ​Thank you so much for coming to us with your question!

    Making Advanced Dining Reservations (ADRs) is always a top priority for me when planning trips to Disney World. All Guests (even those staying off property) are welcome to dine at any of the dining locations at Disney World. ADRs can be made online through the link shown above or by calling 407-WDW-DINE.

    If there are any openings at some of the character dining locations for the dates of your trip, I would recommend you make ADRs as soon as possible before they fill up. Your kids will love dining with the characters!

    Please feel free to visit us with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR to help you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
