    Hi. We have relatives who live in Orlando and would like to join us for dinner one evening during our stay. Can they dine at our resort restaurants without park tickets? In our instance, we are staying at Coronado Springs.

    Hi Jaime,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The best way to have a family reunion is to gather everyone around a table full of delicious eats! 

    Your family can join you for dinner at your Disney Resort hotel. All they have to do upon arrival at the resort is show the security Cast Member their dining reservations, and they will be allowed time to use the parking lot and enjoy the evening with you. We did the same thing last year with my father who was not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, but joined us for dinner at California Grill at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

    You can make Advanced Dining Reservations for dinner at two amazing restaurants located at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, Maya Grill with Mexican and Latin flavors, and Las Ventanas, featuring American cuisine with wonderful salads, burgers and ribs. Please note that Maya Grill is only opened for dinner.

    Remember that reservations are encouraged and can be made 180 days in advance by visiting DisneyWorld.com/Dine, calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463, or using the My Disney Experience mobile app. Don’t forget to share your Reservation Confirmation Number with your relatives.

    I hope you have an unforgettable visit reuniting with family.

    Best magical wishes,
