Top 12 Q & A About Disney World Table Service Dining

12 - Do I need park admission if I am just going to dine there?

Yes.  There are no exceptions to this rule.  If you have to enter the park for any reason, including dining only, then you must have valid park admission for that day and park in order to enter. So be aware of the location of the restaurant that you are interested in going to. If your park days are limited, there are a number of fantastic Disney restaurants at Disney World Resorts. You do not need to be a resort guest to eat at these restaurants; they are open to everyone.
