    We are visiting WDW for the first time. We will be staying at a non-Disney Resort. Can we still dine at the Disney resorts restaurants even though we are not staying at Disney?

    Yes, absolutely. Anyone is welcome to dine at any of the restaurants at WDW, including those at the resorts. Many off-site guests and local Florida area residents dine at the Disney resorts every day. If you want to dine at a Disney resort, I strongly suggest that you make advance reservations. You can do this by calling Disney Dining at 407-WDW-DINE. Most meal reservations can be made up to 90 days in advance.

    You can take the free WDW transportation to get to your resort meal from one of the theme parks, or you can drive directly there. If you are driving, simply tell the guard at the resort gate that you'll be enjoying a meal at the resort and he or she will direct you to the appropriate parking area.

    Have a great trip!
