    My children are 9 and 7. What is best to fast pass? I am confused.

    Hi Melissa,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted that you brought this question to us. Fast Pass+ has enhanced our experience at the Walt Disney World Resort and, honestly, just makes me happy!

    If you have not created a My Disney Experience account, I suggest that you do! It will help you track all of your Dining Reservations and Fast Pass+ selections. With the mobile app, we track the wait times for rides and attractions while in the parks.

    If your children like thrills, I would definitely make the following Fast Pass+ selections:
    • Magic Kingdom: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    • Epcot: Test Track and Mission Space (scheduled to close on June 5th until the end of July for refurbishment)
    Frozen Ever After and Soarin' are also wildly popular at Epcot but they are in the same Fast Pass+ Tier as Test Track so you can only choose one from this Tier. Check out this great answer from Wilma about the Tier 1 options at Epcot. Once you choose one option from Tier 1, then you can choose two options from Tier 2.

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios, definitely Fast Pass+ the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Star Tours - The Adventures Continue and Toy Story Mania! Finally, at Animal Kingdom, use your Fast Pass+ selections for Avatar: Flight of Passage (scheduled to open May 27th), Kilimanjaro Safaris and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Forest.

    Melissa, I hope this helps! 

    Sending pixie dust your way as you plan the magic!
