    We did not purchase a hopper ticket. Can we eat dinner at say the Animal Kingdom, even if we spent the day at the Magic Kingdom?

    Hi John,

    To enter any theme park, even just for a meal, you will need to use a ticket. Without a Park Hopper spending a day at the Magic Kingdom prevents you from entering Disney's Animal Kingdom for dinner. The Rainforest Cafe at Animal Kingdom does have an entrance outside the park so if you booked dinner at this restaurant you will not need a park ticket to enter. Otherwise plan your itinerary so your park days match your dinning reservations.

    I would be happy to help you with restaurant recommendations or itinerary planning. Just contact me if you have additional questions. Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World!
