    Hello, My family has purchased 1-day tickets for Magic Kingdom, but we also would like to eat at a restaurant inside of a Disney Resort Hotel. Can you eat at Disney World Resorts without purchasing separate theme park tickets? Thank you, Denise

    Oh my goodness, Denise! You will be at Magic Kingdom Park before your know it!! You must be so excited!

    I have great news for you! You do not need a ticket to enjoy a meal inside of a Disney Resort hotel. (You do, however, need a ticket to dine at a restaurant inside of the theme parks.)

    Have you made your advance dining reservation yet? I would encourage you to do so soon as the restaurants are very popular!

    Some of my family's favorite restaurants near Magic Kingdom include:

    Disney's Contemporary Resort:  California Grill and Chef Mickey's

    Disney's Polynesian Village Resort:  Kona Cafe and 'Ohana

    Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa:  Citricos and Narcoossee's

    The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort:  Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue

    Disney's Wilderness Lodge:  Artist Point and Whispering Canyon Cafe

    There are countless amazing restaurants throughout Walt Disney World Resort. If you need any information about specific restaurants, please let me know.

    Have a fantastic time at Walt Disney World Resort! Enjoy every magical moment!
