    I did not purchase Park Hopper passes. I am getting ready to make dining reservations and wanted to know if we can have dinner in a different park than the one we spent the day in.

    Hello Christine! Glad to have you visit us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Hopefully the fun of planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is making a New York winter feel not so cold! July will be here before you know it! It's great to see that you are thinking of all the right questions to ask well in advance of your planned vacation! You are going to have your family well-prepared!

    There are so many great dining experiences throughout the Walt Disney World Resort! In order to enjoy a dining experience at a restaurant located inside one of the Disney Parks, admission to that specific park is required. For example, in order to dine at Cinderella's Royal Table, you must have admission to Magic Kingdom Park. Keep in mind that you don't necessarily need a Park Hopper to get that special dining experience you are hoping to enjoy. Guests are allowed to leave and re-enter the same park on the same day. Perhaps you start your morning at Magic Kingdom Park, but have a dinner reservation for Cinderella's Royal Table later that evening. You are permitted to leave Magic Kingdom Park and then return that same day to enjoy your evening dining experience.

    Christine, you are planning your trip for July. Be sure to take advantage of the current Bask in the Sun and Fun deal being offered to Guests booking their reservation at the Walt Disney World Resort. If you booked your reservation prior to this deal being offered, you can check to see if this deal can be applied to your existing reservation by calling (407)939-4357.
