    Hello, we are heading Disney World this Sunday. If we make the reservation at the restaurant in the park, do we need a ticket even we just dine there without playing?

    Hi Xuan, 

    How exciting that you'll be heading to the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few short days! Yes, a theme park ticket is required to enter any of the parks. This is the case even if you are just planning on dining there, and don't plan on enjoying any of the park attractions. Due to this, you'll want to be sure to make Advance Dining Reservations for restaurants which are located outside of the parks if you don't have a ticket. There are many fantastic restaurants located in Disney resort hotels. 

    I hope you have a wonderful time! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel for assistance planning your upcoming vacation. 

    Wishing you magical memories,
