    Is there a list of restaurants that require park reservations for the day?

    Hi there, Janette! Welcome to planDisney. I am so glad you found us to ask your dining question. 

    I love to talk about eating at Walt Disney World. I enjoy good food, and The Most Magical Place on Earth has a LOT of it. 

    The easiest way to find the restaurants that would require a park reservation is to head over to the main Walt Disney World dining page. Then, at the top of the page, hover over “All Parks & Resorts”. This will show you a drop-down menu where you can choose a location. If you select all of the theme parks – Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, & Disney’s Animal Kingdom, it will filter and show you the dining locations within the parks. Any of the restaurants showing would require both a valid theme park admission ticket and a park reservation for that day. 

    When making dining reservations, I recommend not overlooking the resort restaurants. Some of the BEST meals I have had on the Walt Disney World property have been at the resorts. I suggest trying Narcoosee’s at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for an amazing meal and a possible view of nighttime fireworks over Cinderella Castle if you time it right. Another of my favorites is Olivia’s Café at Old Key West Resort. Here I have never been disappointed in my meal and have been pleasantly surprised at the affordability. 

    Hopefully you will be visiting Walt Disney World during The Most Magical Celebration on Earth and can enjoy some of the special 50th Anniversary treats. There are even some anniversary meals available at quick service locations, which are listed on the MyDisneyExperience mobile app when you place your mobile order. 

    I hope this helps with planning your next vacation to visit Mickey Mouse. 

    Happy Traveling (& eating),
