    I don't want to overplan my trip.I know I should book ADR and did so. f I book one ADR in Epcot and one in MK for the same time do I get charged for the two ADR? I'm on the dining plan.I would prefer to choose which park to visit each day when I get there.

    Hi Karen,

    I know it can be difficult to plan your meals and which parks you'll be at each evening -- what if you're having an amazing time at Epcot and you have to leave to go to the Magic Kingdom for dinner?  However, I can't recommend double booking dining reservations.  It's just not fair to other guests.  It can be really frustrating to not be able to get reservations for your favorite restaurant when you're planning your vacation.

    For most restaurants, unless you had to give a credit card number to make the reservation, you won't be penalized if you don't show.  However, you may be making another guest's visit a little less magical.

    My advice is to make a reservation at one restaurant for the evening and plan on spending the time in that park.  If you change your mind while you're on your vacation, cancel the reservation, go to a different park and grab a counter service meal.  I know that's probably not what you want to hear.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
