    We r going for the first time in 2018 and I have some questions 1 if I pick the park I wanna go to can I go to another park for dinner. 2 is the dinning pack worth it. 3 is there any purks for it being our first time and it will be my birthday

    Hi, Nina!

    Wow - your first visit AND your birthday! Now that's something to celebrate. Make sure to stop by a guest services location or the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel to pick-up your complimentary celebration buttons that you can proudly wear during your magical vacation. 

    To switch parks mid-day is considered "Park Hopping." To park hop, you will need to add this option to your theme park tickets. Without the park hopper option, you are welcome to take a mid-day break and return to the same park, but cannot switch parks.

    When planning your dining reservations, plan accordingly with your ticket type. If you do not plan to park hop, book any dining reservations in the park you plan to visit or there are many wonderful restaurants outside the theme parks (Disney Springs, Disney's BoardWalk, or even Disney Resort hotels) as well.

    Whether or not to book the Disney Dining Plan is up to you. It is a nice way to have your meals paid for ahead of time, and allows you to "pay" for your meals with a tap of your MagicBand. Look over the details of the plan to decide if it will work for you. For pricing and more information, book your Magic Your Way package online or call a friendly Cast Member at (407)934-7639.

    Best wishes to you as you plan for this amazing vacation!
