    I am bringing my 2 daughters, ages 5 and 7 to Disney at the end of august. We plan on going to magic kingdom, animal kingsom, and HS. What should we use our fast passes on in each park?


    Your daughters are a wonderful age to enjoy the Characters and the magic of Disney World!

    I typically recommend using FP+ for Princess Meet-and-Greets for children their age but because August can bring high temperatures and humidity, I recommend using your FP+ selections for attractions that will allow you to cut down your wait times that are primarily outside in the heat. With that in mind, here are my recommendations:

    • Magic Kingdom: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Peter Pan, and the afternoon parade. I usually recommend that young families leave the park for a siesta to avoid the heat of the day and return in the evening, but if you decide to stay in the park, head to a FP+ kiosk as soon as the parade is over to get your next FP+ for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and once you're done with it, Jungle Cruise.
    • Animal Kingdom: Although the lines for Nemo--The Musical and Lion King are both in the shade, I recommend the FP+ because of the wait time and seat locations. Choose your other FP+ for Expedition Everest if your daughters meet the 44" height requirement or Kali River Rapids.
    • Hollywood Studios: You'll need to use your Tier 1 FP+ for Toy Story even though you'll be waiting inside simply because the ride is so popular. Use your other two for the Frozen Sing-a-long and Indiana Jones. Make all of these as early as possible in the morning so that you can begin making more after your third one. Then, visit a FP+ kiosk and choose Beauty & the Beast.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
