    If I am not staying at a DW resort, do I get early entry into the park if I have a dining reservation?

    Hi Christine! Welcome to planDisney! That’s a great question! I’m happy to help!

    I love Disney Dining! You can always count on a great meal, with a little twist of Disney magic! Guests with Disney Dining reservations, prior to park opening, are allowed to enter the park to attend their dining experience. Upon arrival at the park, head to one of the Cast Members at the park entrance. Show the Cast Member your Disney Dining reservation so that you can be admitted to the park. The Cast Member will let you know which entrance to use. 

    Christine, keep in mind that Guests with Disney Dining reservations, for an in-park dining location, must also have a theme park ticket to enter the park for their dining reservation.

    While Disney Dining reservations are great, you can also take advantage of mobile dining when you're on the move in the parks (and at your resort, too)! It is incredibly convenient and easy to use! Mobile dining is available on your My Disney Experience app

    Happy Planning!
