    Hi Ornella, 

    Thank you for the follow up question.  I love helping you plan your vacation!  My family will rarely use a Park Hopper even when we have Annual Passes.  There really is so much to do at each park that you will not get bored at all- especially since this is your husband's and toddler's first time to Walt Disney World. There are many people will love to Park Hop and will see multiple parks in one day.  There is nothing wrong with that at all!  I tend to enjoy experiencing the whole park and not spend lots of time trying to get to another park in a day.  The buses do not take you from Park to Park- only Park to resort.  If you are at the Magic Kingdom, you can travel to Epcot via the Monorail and transferring at the Ticket & Transportation Center.  To get to and from the other Theme Parks, you will need to do so at a resort or at Downtown Disney.  As I mentioned above, my family loves to explore one park thoroughly so I would not recommend the Park Hopper option, especially if this is your first visit.  Ultimately, the choice is up to you.  As far as dining is concerned, I understand that you are unable to make Advanced Dining Recommendations.  I would keep trying of course.  On the day you arrive at the park, I would go to the Table Service Restaurant that you wish to dine at the first thing in the morning and see if they have any openings.  Do not wait until later in the day as the spots that are reserved for same day add-on's will fill up.  Have several restaurants in mind and be flexible with timing.  Again, let me know, Ornella, if I can help you again!  :)
