    Can we go to a resort and have drinks or eat at the restaurants with out a reservation. Like the food court area?

    Hiya Meagan - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question for our team of panelists. We love to help Guests just like you plan your very own, very magical, Walt Disney World Resort vacations!

    Meagan, you've hit on one of my absolute favorite things to do while I'm visiting Mickey and his pals! Of course I love the four magical Theme Parks, but the Disney Resorts Collection is also full of so much magical storytelling, including amazing dining options! Currently, all Guests are welcome to visit a Disney Resort Hotel to shop or dine, but keep in mind that some amenities, like pools, are only for registered Guests staying at each Resort.

    You'll also want to keep in mind that parking at Disney Resort Hotels is currently limited to registered Guests of that hotel or Guests who have valid dining or experience reservations. For example, if you make a dinner reservation at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera, you would be permitted to park at Disney's Riviera Resort for that dining reservation, even if you are not staying at the Riviera.

    If you're just interested in looking around or grabbing a bite at a Quick Service dining location or a drink at a Lounge, you'll simply want to use an alternative form of Disney Transportation. For example, you could board the Disney Skyliner from Disney's Hollywood Studios to explore Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. Or, you could take the Monorail from Magic Kingdom Park to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa to grab a craft cocktail at the beautiful Enchanted Rose. Complimentary bus transportation, and for an additional fee, the Disney Minnie Van Service, are also both great options.

    I hope this information is helpful, Meagan - stop by with more questions any time!
