    My DH & I have the Hop Pass, & leave in 5 days! I am wondering if it is silly to hop to a park just for ADR, and then hop back, or should we plan our park visits around our ADRs? And how much time should we allow for travel btwn parks if we do that


    That is an excellent question. I like to minimize the hopping, as time on a bus (or boat, or monorail) is time NOT in a park. However, I have no problem with hopping between Hollywood Studios and Epcot, as the boat ride is both scenic, relaxing, and relatively short. If the parks are fairly light, I might even do the same between the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, via monorail.

    Otherwise, however, I would stick around wherever I was for the ADR. I try not to switch parks more than 1 time per day, with 2 times being the maximum.

    Please feel free to send me any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
