    Hello When do you advise the best time in the day to use fast passes to minimize wait time during the full day. Morning or Afternoon. We will be visiting the Magic Kingdom. Thank You!

    Hey, Michael George!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. When it come to maximizing time for adventure and fun at Walt Disney World Resort theme parks there is no better tool than FastPass+ reservations.

    My suggestion is to make FastPass+ reservations for the morning and to make sure you arrive 45 minutes before Magic Kingdom Park opens. There are several attractions that have long wait times all day long: Space Mountain, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Peter Pan's Flight. If you can ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Peter Pan within the first hour of Magic Kingdom Park opening then you should be set for the rest of the day. I would make FastPass+ reservations for Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Jungle Cruise. Once you have used your three prescheduled FastPass+ reservations you may acquire more, on-by-one, on a rolling basis until there are no FastPass+ reservations available for the day. We made 14 reservations per person in one day when we visited last March.

    I hope this information helps you plan a wonderful Disney vacation without much waiting in lines.

    Michael George, enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort!
