    Hi! I will be staying at the Polynesian from Sept. 9 - Oct 4 and have several lunch and dinner resturants in different parks. Can I get into the parks for my reservation without having a park hopper pass?

    Hi Janet,

    Guests wishing to dine at restaurants within Disney Parks must pay for admission into the park.  So yes, you will need to have a park hopper pass if you have breakfast and dinner reservations at two separate parks.  If purchasing a park hopper pass is not in your budget, you'll need to make sure that you make reservations in the park that you plan on visiting on any given day.  For example, if you're going to Magic Kingdom, you may want to have breakfast at Crystal Palace and dinner at Liberty Tree Tavern.  Alternately, you might want to have one meal inside a park and another meal at a nearby resort.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
