    are there any restaurants that I can eat inside the Parks at Walt Disney World without park pass?

    Hi Tara! That’s a great question! I’m glad you came to planDisney!

    There are so many amazing Disney Dining locations in the Disney Parks! Some of my favorites such as Be Our Guest Restaurant, Yak and Yeti Restaurant, Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano, and Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria all come to mind immediately!

    Guests wishing to enjoy Disney Dining at any restaurant inside the four Disney Parks are required to have valid theme park admission to that particular park. For example, if you want to enjoy a meal in Beast’s Castle at Be Our Guest Restaurant, you must have valid theme park admission for Magic Kingdom Park.

    Of course, Tara, there are just as many delicious Disney Dining options located outside of the parks as well! Some of my favorites include Cape May Café, Chef Mickey’s, California Grill, Topolino’s Terrace, and the Grand Floridian Café! All of these are located in resort hotels. You are not required to be staying at the resort to enjoy dining at restaurants located within them.

    Tara, if you had an in-park restaurant in mind, but you are not visiting that park, send us another question to let us know which restaurant you were considering. My planDisney friends and I could probably offer a similar restaurant located outside of the park!

    Answering your question has made me hungry for some of my favorites! Yes, “Grey Stuff,” I’m talking to you!

    Happy Planning!
