    Do we need to make dinner reservations in the same park as out ticket that day as we will not have a park hopper pass or can we make a reservation at any of the restaurants regardless of our park ticket? Thanks.

    Hi Rory!

    It sounds like you are planning a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation and I'm happy to hear that you are going to make your dining reservations in advance. This is the best way to ensure that you will be able to enjoy many of the table service restaurants on your "must-do" list!

    There are so many incredible restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort, many of which are located within the theme parks. Dining reservations at restaurants inside of the theme parks do not include theme park admission and you will need valid theme park admission to enjoy your reservations. So if you do not have the Park Hopper Option on your ticket, you will not be able to enter a different theme park to enjoy your dining reservation.

    You have several options for your dining reservations if you don't have the Park Hopper Option on your ticket. You can enjoy one of the fantastic restaurants within the theme park you are visiting for the day or there are amazing restaurants located within the Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs that all Guests are welcome to enjoy. Some of my favorites are California Grill, 'Ohana and Chef Art Smith's Homecomin'!

    Come back to see us if we can help you with additional questions as you continue planning your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
