10 DO’s and DON’Ts for Making Advanced Dining Reservations at Disney World

2 - DON’T forget to plan park admission or event admission that is required

If you plan to dine inside one of the Walt Disney World theme parks, you are required to pay park admission.  This is true even if you only plan to go to breakfast, and it is before park opening.  You are still required to have valid park admission in order to enter the park.  So be sure when you are planning and making your reservations that you plan to have park admission for all of the days that you have dining for, and that you purchase park hopper tickets if necessary.  Also, if you are there during one of the special event parties like Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, be mindful of those times and dates for reservations.  The parties start at 7, and if you don’t plan on purchasing park admission, you may get picked out of the park if you make a reservation during the party times, and won’t be able to make your reservation.   Photo: Skipper Canteen in Magic Kingdom Park.
