    With Park Hopper on a crowded day, how risky is it to book an ADR at the 2nd park we want to attend? If the 2nd park doesn't allow more guests would we be refunded the Park Hopper fee? The small print about this is making me nervous about plans!

    Hiya, Jennifer! I'm so glad you found the trail of pixie dust that Tinker Bell left for you and followed it here to planDisney! 

    When traveling to The Most Magical Place on Earth, my husband and I are big fans of adding the Park Hopper option to our Theme Park Tickets! This is our favorite way of adding a little extra magic to a practically perfect vacation. We love being able to start our morning flying over Never Land on Peter Pan's Flight at Magic Kingdom Park, then end our night with a dessert in our hand watching Harmonious at EPCOT! Park Hopper tickets add that magical combination of both flexibility and spontaneity. As my friend Rapunzel says, it makes for the BEST. DAY. EVER!

    Even on busy days at Walt Disney World Resort, I've never had a problem hopping to our desired second park. I think you should book the Advance Dining Reservation you wish to experience with no worries. Hakuna Matata! The good news is that Guests are notified through their My Disney Experience app if that were to happen so there are no unwanted surprises. In the very rare instance that a park may be at capacity, my best suggestion would be to speak to a Cast Member in person. While a refund can't be guaranteed, I know that the amazing Cast Members do everything they can to stretch their magic wands as far as they can reach! 

    Jennifer, you are truly in for a magical visit this spring. Be sure to spend some time viewing the Beacons of Magic in all of the parks or challenge your travel party to discover all of the golden Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues. You may even be interested in booking some special experiences through the Enchanting Extras Collection! No matter what your plans are, the true magic of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is the quality time you get to spend with the people you love. Here's a little secret: magic multiplies when it's shared, and your trip is sure to be an extra special one!

    If you have any other questions, please visit us again. After all, you've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon!
