    I was wondering if Disney offers a pass to enter a park to have dinner, without purchasing a park ticket?

    Unfortunately, you do need a park ticket to go to restaurant within an individual park.

    The good news is that there are plenty of great restaurants to be found both in the resorts of WDW and in Downtown Disney, which is an area of WDW that contains shops and restaurants.  It does not require park admission.  If you are looking for a real Disney experience that includes hugs from Mickey Mouse, check out Chef Mickey's.  For a more formal adult meal, I would recommend the upstairs dinning room at Wolfgang Puck's located in Downtown Disney. 

    Parking at Downtown Disney is free.  For resort dining, you need advanced reservations for the restaurant in order to be able to park in the resort's lot.  Call (407)WDW-DINE for more information and reservations.

I have been fortunate enough to be on the Walt Disney World Moms Panel since 2008.  As a Disney World enthusiast, I can’t imagine a greater opportunity.  My husband, our 6-year-old daughter, and I visit WDW a few times a year.
