    We're staying at the Allstar Sports Resort, can we eat at any resort restaurant even if our tickets aren't good till the day after we check in?

    Hi Omny!

    Oh my, yes! Walt Disney World is full of easy to access dining choices at the resorts and at Disney Springs. You'll be able to visit, and dine, at any of these locations without a theme park ticket.

    For the first day at Walt Disney World, our family loves to explore Disney Springs. We spend a few hours browsing through the shopping district, and then enjoying a family meal. You really can't go wrong with any dining choices, but some of our favorites include Earl of Sandwich for a quick-service meal that never disappoints, The Daily Poutine for amazing fries, gravy and cheese, and Enzo's Hideaway for a more leisurely, table service meal. 

    To have even more fun, you can dine and bowl at Splitsville - the whole family will enjoy fun bowling and excellent cuisine. If you have Star Wars fans or technology geeks in the family, you don't want to miss The VOID: Step Beyond Reality. On a recent day in Disney Springs, our family saved the galaxy and had a blast doing it!

    If you'd prefer to head to a Walt Disney World Resort, you'll have lots of choices as well. From 'Ohana at Disney's Polynesian Resort to dinner with Mickey & friends at Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort, the choices are numerous and delicious.

    I hope this helps! Be sure to stop by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again if we can help you plan some more details for your trip!
