    Thx in advance!Our 2nd trip is nov16-21 is typhoon lagoon open this time of yr?Also if I book dining rerservations in a park is a park ticket for that day required?I read rain forest cafe DTD and planet hollywood now accept disney dining is this true?=)

    Hi Priscilla! Traditionally, Typhoon Lagoon is closed for the Novemeber/December months and Blizzard Beach is closed for the January/February months. Disney always keeps one water park open during the winter months, and maintains heated pools WP and resort wide. As for dining in the theme parks, Yes, you are required to have park admission in order to enjoy dining experiences in the theme parks. You can choose to enjoy your dining experiences at Downtown Disney, which requires no admission ticket. At DD, Rainforest Cafe, T-Rex, Paradiso 37 and Bongos are now accepting the Disney Dining Plan. Planet Hollywood has accepted and continues to accept Disney Dining Plan. Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation! -Malanie

Meet the Panelist: Malanie, New York

Hi there! The Disney Parks have been a part of my life since I was a little girl. Introducing my children, husband, and family to all the magic that Walt Disney World can offer has led to countless moments with Mickey and Friends, Disney Vacation Club membership and fun on the high seas with Disney Cruise Lines! Our vacations are usually centered around a visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth, and I am super excited to help you plan and create magical moments for you and your families!
