    I have reservations for breakfast at Cape May, but if I can get a reservation at one of the park restaurants for an early character breakfast do we need tickets to the park? No time to visit the parks this trip :( Want my kids to get some Disney time.

    Greetings Stephanie!

    In order to access dining within Walt Disney World Theme Parks, guests must present valid theme park admission at the park gates, even if the park is not open at the time of your reservation.

    Cape May Cafe is a great character breakfast!  You can stroll around the lake to The Boardwalk area after breakfast.

    There are also other Character Dining Experiences outside of the parks.  'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort is one of our favorites.  Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort is another fun option.  

    I see you're arriving next month.  I know Character Dining reservations fill up fast, but if you're interested in one of the other non-park options, keep trying!  I often check the site several times each day to find a last-minute reservation.  

    I hope you have a magical time!  Please come back and see us again real soon.
