    We currently have fast passes booked for Magic Kingdom but we are looking to switch our plans and go to Animal Kingdom. Is there a way to check for fast pass availability in that park without losing our current selections? We don’t have park hoppers

    Hi Melissa! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so glad you're here with your planning question, and I'd be happy to assist you.

    It's great that you are thinking ahead, plotting out your itinerary, and making FastPass+ selections prior to your arrival at the Most Magical Place on Earth. Isn't FastPass+ the best? I love reserving my family's must-do attractions in advance, and my children enjoy discussing and choosing their favorite experiences as they count down the days until our trip.

    I am pleased to inform you, Melissa, that you absolutely can check FastPass+ availability in Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park while maintaining your current selections at the Magic Kingdom Park. I'll explain exactly how to do this.

    First, once you are logged in to your My Disney Experience account, choose "Get FastPass+" from the drop down menu. If you are using the mobile app, click the + symbol to add a FastPass+ experience. Then choose the date you plan to switch, and select Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    At this point, you will be warned that guests may only select FastPass+ experiences at 1 park per day, and that if you continue, your current FastPass+ selections will be canceled and replaced. Don't panic! Your current selections will only be lost if you choose, confirm, and finalize experiences at a different park. Nothing will be canceled by simply looking around. If you do you confirm and finalize an experience at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, all existing FastPass+ selections at the Magic Kingdom for that day will be canceled.

    Melissa, should you decide to alter your plans to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, a few of my favorite attractions that frequently have flexible FastPass+ availability are Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain and DINOSAUR. I try to experience the attractions in Pandora - The World of Avatar at park opening or just prior to closing. No matter where I am in the theme park, when my stomach sounds like an angry lion, I head directly to Satu'li Canteen. It is my current favorite quick-service dining spot in all of Walt Disney World, and I recommend it to anyone visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The design-your-own bowls are wildly delicious.

    I hope that helps you navigate the planning process for your traveling party, Melissa. I know you will have a fantastic day wherever you decide to go.

    Hakuna Matata!
