    Our 1st night there we won't have park tickets. We'd like to dine at the Rainforest Cafe at the Animal Kindgom. Do you have to have park tickets to dine there?

    You do not need theme park admission to dine at the Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom, and it is one of my girls' favorite places to eat! 

    As an alternative, if we arrive late in the day, we might choose the Downtown Disney Rainforest location and let the girls (and mom!) visit some of the shops or the little Lego play area.  They enjoy the meal, the play area, and I enjoy picking up a few little souvenirs!  It also lets us hold off on dessert until we've walked off some of the dinner, and then we can grab something at Ghiradelli's before heading back to the resort!
