    is it possible to dine in a restaurant in a park different than the one you are visiting without a hopper pass? We are arriving on Dec 20th but will not be using tickets to visit a specific theme park that day.

    Hi Sandy!

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Unfortunately, a separate theme park admission is required to enjoy a meal at any restaurant located within a theme park. This will mean that you will need to make a reservation in the theme park you plan to visit, or purchase the park hopper ticket option. The great thing is that if you are not planning to visit a theme park, there are plenty of dining options to choose from in the Downtown Disney area and the Disney Resort hotels. I hope this helps.

    Have a magical meal!
