    I purchased the Dining package but did not purchase the hopper passes. Can I make a reservation at any park or does it have to be at the park I am in? So if i'm at the Animal Kingdom and I make a reservation at Magic Kingdom, can I do that?

    Hi Nidia,

    You need to have a valid admission ticket any time you enter one of the theme parks, even for dining. This means that if you only have a base admission ticket, you need to schedule your Magic Kingdom dining on your Magic Kingdom visit day, your Animal Kingdom dining on your Animal Kingdom day, etc. If you have Park Hopper tickets, you could tour the Animal Kingdom in the morning and dine at the Magic Kingdom in the evening.

    If you'd like to upgrade, you're welcome to add the Park Hopper option to your ticket now or at any point during your vacation.

    Another good option is to dine at one of the many wonderful restaurants in the resorts or at Downtown Disney. There is no admission ticket required for these locations and they vastly expand the choices available to you.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
