    my dear husband is planning our rides and shows at theme parks with our FastPass and he wants to know HOW LONG does each ride or show last - like an hour or so?

    Hi, Janine! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The duration of each attraction really does vary. For example, Astro Orbiter, and The Barnstormer last just over 1 minute, whereas Finding Nemo-The Musical and Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular each last 30 minutes and are some of the longest attractions at Walt Disney World Resort. Despite ride lengths, I would suggest spacing your FastPass+ selections at least 45 minutes apart, if not an hour. This gives you time to travel to the next attraction, stop at a restroom, or even stop for a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar if the mood strikes! When I schedule my FastPass+, I like to look at the Disney Theme Park maps to ensure that I am not running clear across the Theme Park after each ride or show to catch the next.

    I hope this answers your question and helps you make those important FastPass+ decisions! Stop by again real soon!
