    Do I have to have a park ticket to go to a restaurant inside a park?

    Welcome back, Jessica! 

    Walt Disney World® Resort has magic around every corner, including all the fabulous dining locations inside and outside of the theme parks! However, when wanting to dine, or visit, a restaurant located within a theme park, guests must have valid theme park admission to gain entry. 

    I would love to know which theme park restaurant you were interested in, Jessica! With so many wonderful options available at our resort hotels and the reimagined Disney Springs™ Area, I may be able to suggest for you a restaurant with similar cuisine or ambiance that will not require theme park admission to enjoy.

    For a "taste" of some of Disney Springs™ newest dining locations, just select the highlighted link. I'd also love to hear from you again so I may assist you further. 

    Happy planning!
