    Are park passes required for Character Dining Experiences within the parks?

    Hi Ada, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for sending us your question.  Character Dining Experiences are so much fun, they provide extra magic while enjoying a fantastic meal.  

    In order to dine at any Dining Location inside a Theme Park, Character Dining Experiences included, separate Theme Park Tickets are required.  Guests must have regular admission into the Theme Parks to dine at one of the locations inside a Theme Park.  With that being said, there are still plenty of options for Character Dining outside of the Theme Parks.  My absolute favourite Character Dining Experience is at Chef Mickey's located at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  Here, guests enjoy a delicious buffet and visit with the original gang: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Pluto.  It is classic Disney and this dining experience is a must do for my family.  Another favourite of mine is 'Ohana's Best Friends Breakfast featuring Lilo and Stitch at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort.  

    There are several other Character Dining Experiences located at Cape May Cafe in Disney's Beach Club Resort, 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and Trattoria al Forno at Disney's Boardwalk Resort where the Best Friends Breakfast features Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Ariel and Prince Eric.  

    Bon appetit!
