    Hi Moms! Trying to maximize our 10-day, no expiry, Park Hopper plus waterpark tickets. Wondering if there's any times/examples when you could go into one of the parks JUST to get to a dining reservation without using a park admission day. Thanks!

    Hi Krista,

    You know we here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel LOVE to maximize our time at Disney Parks! Unfortunately, any time you want to enter one of the theme parks, even just to dine at a restaurant, you will need to use a park admission. 

    The good news is there are so many amazing restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels that would not require a park admission. Whether your party loves characters, family-style meals, buffets, or fine dining, you can find great options at the resorts!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Be sure to let us know if we can help you with any other questions!
    Wishing you a magical, maximized vacation,
    Amy H
