    I understand that I need a valid park ticket to make a dining reservation. So do I need to book my park tickets first and then book dining? Will the dining reservation ask me for a ticket number or something to prove that I have a park ticket?

    Greetings, Kelly.

    Can you believe you'll be sailing on a voyage to Arendelle, taking a safari around the African savanna, helping save the galaxy from Evil Emperor Zurg, and fighting alongside The Resistance against The First Order in just two months? I bet you can't wait, so let the final countdown commence!

    While valid theme park admission and a Theme Park Reservation are required in order to dine at dining locations inside of the theme parks, you will be able to make a dining reservation for those locations prior to purchasing your theme park ticket. I just tested this out in My Disney Experience to be sure and had no issues making a dining reservation even though there was no linked admission or Theme Park Reservation in my account at the time. Keep in mind you will need to purchase a ticket and make a Theme Park Reservation ahead of that date, because both will be required to enter the theme park and enjoy your meal that day.

    Remember, Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels can make advanced dining reservations for the length of their stay (up to 10 days) 60 days in advance of their check-in date, while all other Guests can make dining reservations 60 days in advance of the date they wish to dine. On the appropriate 60-day mark for your trip, you can begin making reservations starting at 6:00 a.m. EST, however, I recommend you start looking at 5:45 a.m. EST.

    I hope this information proves helpful, Kelly, but please stop back by if you find yourself in need of further assistance. Enjoy every memorable moment on your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Think happy thoughts,
