    Hello! I was thinking about booking a meal at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, but I did not plan on visiting Epcot while at WDW. Will we be allowed into Epcot just for dining or do we have to have the Park Hopper Pass for that day? Thank you

    Hi, Amy! You will not be able to enter a different theme park without the Park Hopper option. You will need to make your dining reservations in the park that you have chosen to attend that day.  You can't enter a park without a ticket, even with an Advance Dining Reservation, and if you have already entered another park that day, your non-Park Hopper ticket for that day would no longer be valid.  Another great option for your travel party is to make reservations at any of the wonderful Walt Disney World Resort Hotel restaurants. Since those do not require theme park admission, you can visit those whenever you like.   Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
