    Do you need a park pass to enter just for a dining reservation. we have a reservation at the rainforest cafe on our final day however we will have already exhausted our 5 day park hopper plus passes.

    Hi, Ericca!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you are having fun planning your Walt Disney World® Resort vacation. You've come to the right place for any questions that you may have. 

    Rainforest Cafe® offers two dining locations at Walt Disney World® Resort, one at Disney Springs, and one at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The good news is, neither location will require theme park admission to gain entry for your dining reservation. 

    If you're dining at the Disney Springs Marketplace location, Walt Disney World®'s mecca for shopping and dining, you'll have the opportunity to check out all the latest additions to this location and there is no admission required to this district, it's open to the public. 

    If you're dining at the Animal Kingdom Theme Park location, there is a side entrance for guests with dining reservations who are not planning on entering the theme park itself.

    So Hakuna Matata! You're all set to enjoy this wild dining experience without needing theme park admission. I've also included interactive maps to help you find the locations. Just select the highlighted links to check it out! 

    I hope this helps, Ericca! Please let me know if any additional questions come up as you continue planning. I am here to help.
