    If we are spending the day in mk but have dinner reservations at a restaurant at animal kingdom can we leave mk go to eat at ak without hopper pass?

    Hi there, Jenny!

    Unfortunately, theme park admission is required to dine at any restaurant within a Walt Disney World Theme Park.  Yes, you would need to have a a ticket with the Park Hopper option if you want to dine at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and are coming from Magic Kingdom Park.  For what it's worth, I always recommend that guests consider purchasing the Park Hopper option.  It makes your vacation more spontaneous, and allows you to hop around if you choose.  For example, maybe you want to experience something twice and want to hop back to that theme park just for that purpose.  Think about it!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation!
