    Can you go to a park for lunch reservations only w/out having a park hopper? And still visit another day to enjoy the park? Hollywood Studios park, reservations @ Hollywood & Vine.

    Hi Melanie,

    In order to dine at a restaurant located inside one of the theme parks, you need a ticket to enter the park.  The only exception is Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom, which has an entrance both inside and outside the park (and which you can, therefore, enter without having a ticket to Animal Kingdom).  In your example, you would need a ticket to enter Hollywood Studios in order to eat at Hollywood & Vine.  If you started your day at another park and wanted to go to the Studios for lunch that same day, you would need the Park Hopper Option on your ticket.  My kids love the Play n' Dine character meals at Hollywood & Vine.  If you have Playhouse Disney fans in your family too, I think it's a great addition to your Disney itinerary.

    Have a wonderful trip!
