    HI, i'm coming to Walt Disney World in July but i'm not staying in a Disney hotel, can i still dine in a Disney hotel?

    Hi, Paul!  You absolutely can dine - and shop, and relax, and enjoy - any of the Walt Disney World hotels!  You have the option of accessing the Walt Disney World hotels from any of the theme parks or Downtown Disney, or if you are going to have a car with you, you simply have to drive up to the security gate.  Tell the you will be dining or shopping, and they will give you a temporary parking pass, which is usually good for three hours.

    Many of the resort restaurants are very popular, so you will want to make reservations when you know your itinerary.  You can make reservations 180 days in advance.  I prefer to make mine by visiting Disney World Dining Reservations.  

    I hope you get to enjoy many happy meals - and magical moments - on your upcoming vacation!
