    do you have to have tickets to the park to make reservations at a restaurant in the park?

    Hi Patience,

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel!  Yes, you do need to have park passes to enter and dine at all of the restaurants located within the parks.

    If don't have passes, keep in mind that there are wonderful alternatives, that are incredibly popular, located at all of the Disney Resorts, and the fabulous Disney Springs area.  Please check out Dining at  There are so many fun choices; you might be happy you didn't dine in a park!

    I hope this information helps.  Have a wonderful time at Disney!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
