    We are coming to WDW in Feb for 11 yo bday. I am looking at planning our FP. Looking over your past MP answers, I keep seeing Tiers for FP. Can you please explain what these tiers are? Your recommendations for favorite FP. PS she is scared of wide rides.

    Hey, Nicole! How very exciting that your princess gets to celebrate her birthday at Walt Disney World.

    The FastPass+ tiers are just the way the FastPass+ selections can be made. You know the line from  from Aladdin that goes "Have some of column A, try all of column B!" in the song "Friend Like Me" - it's like that. You can choose one FastPass+ attraction from Tier 1, and choose your others from Tier 2. 

    Tier 1 attractions are usually brand new attractions or ones that continue to be very popular. The new attractions at Toy Story Land at Disney's Hollywood Studios are all Tier 1 attractions - meaning you can choose one of those with your initial three FastPass+ selections. 

    I'm afraid of wild rides myself, so I think I have a pretty good list of attractions you may want to look at using your FastPass+ selections on. I love Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin at the Magic Kingdom, and Soarin' Around the World at Epcot. Frozen Ever After is a super popular attraction, and lines tend to be long, so that's another good one to FastPass.

    I always get a FastPass+ for Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom, but by far, the toughest attractions there are in Pandora - the World of AVATAR. I'd say get those first.

    Have a great visit on your daughter's birthday, Nicole!
