    do i need park tickets to dine at chef mickeys or can we just ride monorail to hotel?

    Hello Sharon and thank you for asking the Disney Parks Moms Panel such a great question about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort. 
    You've made a delicious dining choice by opting to secure an Advanced Dining Reservation with the Big Cheese himself at Chef Mickey's in the iconic Disney's Contemporary Resort.  
    I'm super happy to share that Disney's Contemporary Resort hotel isn't located inside a Disney Theme Park and therefore won't require a Theme Park Ticket to gain entrance. And just for fun be sure to listen out for the only Spanish phrase I know - "Por favor mantengase alejado de las puertas!" 
    As you rightly mention Disney's Contemporary Resort is indeed served by the Resort Monorail system and for absolute Guest convenience the Monorail itself not only travels right through the centre of this beautiful A-framed building, but also stops for Guests to hop-on or hop-off as they wish - as long as they stand clear of the doors! 
    Wishing you an extra magical upcoming visit to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort where I'm sure you'll create some unforgettable memories which are sure to last an entire lifetime. 
    Have a great Disney day.
