    Hi - we're planning our first trip to Disney with our 3yo and have purchased non-park hopper tickets. We have dining reservations at Downtown Disney and Animal Kingdom - does this mean we're limited to those parks on the days of our reservations?THANKS!

    Hi Francesca!

         Congratulations on planning your first Walt Disney World vacation!  If you have purchased Magic Your Way Tickets for your vacation with out the Park Hopper Option then you can go to one park per day.  You can leave and return to the same park in the same day.  Downtown Disney is free to all Guests and does not require a ticket to go there so you would not need to use a ticket to get to your Advanced Dining Reservation at Downtown Disney.  For Animal Kingdom you will need to use a Magic Your Way Ticket to enter the park to eat so I would plan on staying at Animal Kingdom on that particular day.  If you choose to dine at any of the Resorts in Walt Disney World you would not need to use a Magic Your Way Ticket to eat there.  As you are planning your first Walt Disney World vacation, please don't hesitate to ask us Moms and Dads more questions.

    I hope that your first Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
