    I have children ages 5 and 8 what should I definitely fast pass? We are going in February.

    Hello Bernadette!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Nothing makes me happier than planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, and one of my favorite moments is making FastPass+ selections. Choose your favorite attractions 30 days before your visit or 60 days in advance when you stay at a Disney Resort hotel. Being a Guest at a Disney Resort hotel will also offer you many other benefits, be sure to check them out!

    There are so many different attractions at all four theme parks that selections will depend on what your children are interested in. Do they like thrill rides or do they prefer calm attractions? Take a moment to sit down with them while you plan to go over available shows and attractions. You will be able to select by age interest, type of experience and even height requirements.

    Based on current popularity and the fact that my 6-year-old is an adrenaline seeker, here are my personal picks:
    - Magic Kingdom Park: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
    - Epcot: Soarin’, Spaceship Earth, Mission: SPACE.
    - Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Star Tours - The Adventures Continue, Toy Story Mania!
    - Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Avatar Flight of Passage, Expedition Everest, Kilimanjaro Safaris.

    You can make 3 initial selections per park per day of your visit. After you have used your first 3 choices, you can pick a 4th experience using the My Disney Experience mobile app or FastPass+ kiosks available at the parks.

    I hope this helps you while planning! Please stop by with more questions!

    Best magical wishes,
