1. For any restaurant in the park, you must have park admission
This should really go without saying, but you wouldn’t believe how many people make reservations for locations in the parks and don’t have valid park admission! If you want to dine at a restaurant inside any of the theme parks, you must have a ticket or you will not be allowed to dine. Very rarely have I heard of people actually getting to dine without a ticket, so it’s not worth chancing. However, any of the restaurants at the resorts or Disney Springs are fair game and, in my opinion, are slightly better than the majority of the restaurants in the parks!
There are a lot of things to take into consideration when dining at Disney, and this is truly the tip of the iceberg! Check out all of the restaurants, dining plans and other helpful information on Disney’s website before you arrive so you’re fully prepared!
