    Can I schedule a Disney character meal even though we are not staying in a Disney resort?

    Hi Staci,

    Absolutely! All guests are welcome to enjoy the delicious character dining meals at Walt Disney World, whether or not you are spending the night in a Disney resort. You will want to call 407-WDW-DINE to make your Advanced Dining Reservations. You can do this up to 180 days prior to your arrival. One thing to keep in mind, if you choose character dining that is located inside a theme park, you will need to use a park ticket to be able to eat there. If you select a restaurant located inside a Disney resort, you will not need a park pass.

    Please let me know if I can assist you further or if you would like some recommendations for restaurants.

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation!
