    Hello! We are heading to Disneyworld soon and I was wondering if you have to have a ticket to Magic Kingdom just to eat at a restaurant inside the park?

    Greetings and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Dannielle!

    How excited you must be about your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort where many Disney experiences await your arrival!

    To enjoy any dining inside any of our four Disney Theme Parks, Dannielle, you must have valid Theme Park Admission. You may wish to check for any current special offer Theme Park Tickets, which may be available for your scheduled visit.

    Many Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs offer restaurants with themed ambiance and delicious food where a valid Theme Park Ticket is not required. Some of our favorite non-Theme Park restaurants are:
    - ‘Ohana at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
    - Boma-Flavors of Africa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort
    - Whispering Canyon Cafe at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
    - The BOATHOUSE® Restaurant at Disney Springs
    - California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
    Some restaurants even include the enjoyable Disney Characters for special meet and greets such as 1900 Park Fare and Chef Mickey's.

    Please ensure you customize your plans with My Disney Experience for your Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ Planning and much more!

    We hope this information is helpful, Dannielle, wish you many wonderful Disney dining experiences and magical memories during your visit and hope to be of service with any Disney Vacation planning in the near future!
