    Our family of 17 will be travelling to Disney staying at Art of Animation in May, 2016. We are planning our meals now. If we book a table service meal located in a park, do we have to use one of our 4 day park hopper pass to access the restaurant?

    Hi Michelle!

    How exciting that you are visiting Walt Disney World (WDW) with your entire family! You are going to love the Art of Animation! Their pools are amazing, you can even hear music under water!

    Yes, if you book at Table Service Disney Dining experience at one of the four parks, you will need to have separate park admission for that day. However, you have many options if you want to book an Advanced Dining Reservation (ADR) and don't want to use on one of your park hoppers on that day. You may book at any of the Disney restaurants in the resorts, such as Ohana at Polynesian or California Grill at The Contemporary. At California Grill you can even see the fireworks from Wishes above the Cinderella Castle from high above. It is absolutely magical.
