    Neighbor at the beach wants to know if you need tickets to the Park to have dinner with the characters. Reservations for dinner have been made, over Christmas

    Hi, Nancy!

    Thanks so much for sending this great question; we get asked that very thing often!

    For guests with dining reservations at any restaurant within a Walt Disney World park, admission will be needed. However, if your neighbor's reservation for a wonderful character dining experience is located within a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, then no ticket will be needed at that time.

    There are so many exciting character dining experiences, and enjoying one at the most magical time of the year will make your neighbors' night even better! Be sure to tell them to check out this excellent post regarding Holidays at Walt Disney World, too. There is so much more to see and do during this very special time of year, so while your neighbors are heading to their character dinner, they should be on the lookout for extra-special sights and sounds throughout the parks and resorts. Truly, a visit to Walt Disney World at Christmas is as magical as it can get.

    Send your neighbor over to us at Disney Parks Moms Panel for more answers, Nancy. Of course, come back here for information when you're ready to plan your OWN trip to Walt Disney World, too. We love to help!
