    If you do not purchase the park hopper pass, are you only able to dine at the park that you visit for that day? what about for the Merry Christmas party?

    Hi Michelle! Walt Disney World has so many restaurants that you won't lack for a place to dine, even if you don't have a Park Hopper ticket. If you have tickets that allow you to visit one park each day, you may dine at the restaurants in that park, in any of the Disney resorts, and at Downtown Disney, but you will not be able to eat at restaurants in the other parks that day. Plan your dining so that you visit the park each day where you have a dining reservation or make reservations at the resort hotels close to the park that you're visiting that day. 

    Your tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party serve as your admission ticket to the Magic Kingdom that evening. (Even if you used your park tickets to visit a different park earlier in the day, your party ticket will admit you to the Magic Kingdom and you'll be able to dine at the restaurants there.)

    If you need some restaurant recommendations or have other questions, come visit us again at the Moms Panel! We'd love to help!
