    Hi. I was wondering if you can make reservations with a dining plan at the Magic Kingdom (for example) if you don't plan on going there that day? We don't plan on getting the park hopper. Thanks.

    Hello Steve!
    If you are dinning at at restaurant that is inside a Walt Disney World Theme Park, then you will need to have a valid park ticket to enter the park for your meal even if you have a Disney Dining Plan. You can always add the Park Hopper Option to your park tickets for an additional fee. If you do not have a park ticket or the Park Hopper Option on your park tickets, then I would recommend trying out some of the fabulous restaurants in the Walt Disney World Resorts or at Disney Springs because all of the restaurants in those locations do not require a park ticket to eat at them. I hope that your next trip to Walt Disney World is truly amazing in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
