    Can I make a reservation for dinner at a restaurant in Magic Kindgom without buying a ticket?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Laura ~

    There are so many great restaurants inside the theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort and I love to try a new one each time I visit. Theme park admission is required when dining at a restaurant located inside any of the four theme parks so you would need to purchase a theme park admission ticket to enter even if it is only to dine.

    There are wonderful restaurants at the Walt Disney World Resort that are not located in one of the four theme parks and would not require you to purchase theme park admission. Disney Springs and Disney's Boardwalk both have a lot of fantastic dining options. Some of these dining locations highly recommend advanced dining reservations and others are quick service which means that you can just walk up.

    In addition to awesome dining, both Disney Springs and Disney's Boardwalk also offer shopping, lots of entertainment options, and exciting nightlife. We always include these destinations as part of our trips because no theme park admission is required and there is lots to do.

    Please feel free to visit us with all of your planning questions. We are hEAR for you!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
