    do I need a park hopper pass if we use dining option and plan to eat at a different park on the same day?

    Hello Justin,

    If you plan on spending time at more than one park per day you will need the Park Hopper option added to your park admission passes.  Having a dining reservation inside one of the parks does not guarantee you entrance to the parks, you definitely have to have a ticket to enter.

    If you decide not to add the Park Hopper option to your passes please keep in mind that all of the parks have resorts that are relatively close by.  For example, if you are in Magic Kingdom, you can leave the park to dine at any of the restaurants on the Monorial loop.  The resorts around the park offer spectacular dining experiences.  After enjoying your meal, you could return to the same park with the same ticket you used earlier in the day.  Basically, you can come and go to the same park as many times as you'd like in the same day.

    I hope this information helps.  Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel.  Have a magical vacation!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
