    Can you go to a theme park just to have dinner at one of the restaurants? For example, we wanted to buy a ticket for the day to the Magic Kingdom, but wanted to have dinner at the Coral Reef. Is this possible? Thanks!

    Hi, Kristen! I'm so glad you asked this question now instead of being disappointed later. You would not be allowed to enter Epcot (or any Theme Park) without a valid ticket - even if you have made an Advance Dining Reservation. So, if you had used a ticket to Magic Kingdom, you would not be able to visit Epcot without adding the Park Hopper option (or another day's tickets for another whole day of fun). If neither of those options works for you, another great option which my family loves is to make reservations at any of the wonderful Walt Disney World Resort Hotel restaurants. Since those do not require Theme Park admission, you can visit those whenever you like.   Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
