    Thanks Bernie for answering my question! I do have another question....Do we need park tickets to go to our dinner reservation at Chef Mickey's or to explore the Deluxe Resortsl? We were planning on saving our passes for the 5 full days we are at Disney.

    Hi Heather!

    Absolutely not!  You can explore the resorts, go to Chef Mickey's in the Contemporary, and ride the Disney transportation system without using any days on your park tickets.

    For example, you could take a bus to the Magic Kingdom and then instead of going into the park, head to the Magic Kingdom monorail station and get on the resort monorail to visit the Polynesian, Contemporary, and Grand Floridian hotels.  Or you could walk to the Magic Kingdom boat launch and take a boat to Fort Wilderness or the Wilderness Lodge, which are located on Bay Lake. 

    I hope this helps!  Thank you for sending me your question directly.  I really appreciate it.  Please write back with more questions!
