    In order to make a reservation and have a meal at one of the restaurants at the different parks, do we have to be at the park that day? Meaning, if we spend the day at Magic Kingdom, but want to have dinner at Hollywood Studios is it allowed?

    Hello Cindy!

    Dining at Walt Disney World is just as much fun as the attractions themselves!  In order to enjoy a meal at a different park than the one you have chosen to visit that day,you will have to purchase the Park Hopper option for your park admission.  For example, if you are spending the day in Animal Kingdom and have dinner reservations at Crystal Palace in Magic Kingdom, you will need the Park Hopper in order to gain entrance to Magic Kingdom.  If you do not wish to purchase the Park Hopper option, you may want to consider dining at one of Disney's Resorts or Downtown Disney.  Some of my favorite meals are outside of the parks and it gives me a chance to visit other resorts.  I hope this helps and please visit us again if you have any more questions!

    Best Wishes!
