    If you have family not staying at one of the Disney resorts, can they come and visit your resort and eat at the Disney restaurants with us?

    Hello Melanie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My family went to Walt Disney World Resort on a vacation at a time when my retired father was wintering outside of Clearwater, Florida. We had not seen him in 2 months, so he decided to drive to Walt Disney World Resort for 1 day and surprise his Grandchildren while at the Resort Pool. My kids reacted with more surprise than they had when the met any of the Disney Princesses or characters.

    Another Endlessly Magical experience at Walt Disney World Resort!
