    I am going to disney first week in feb with my son,7, daughter,5, son,2, and my DH. We got our magic bands and need to make fast past selections. My husband will not be going on thunder mountain. What fast pass choices should I make?

    Hi, Diana!

    There must be some really serious excitement going on at your house with your Walt Disney World vacation coming right up around the corner! I'm so glad to hear that your MagicBands made a safe arrival into your mailbox starting your vacation a little early.

    FastPass+ testing is currently going on at all 4 of the major Theme Parks. As far as scheduling your FastPass+ selections, you can [and should] definitely schedule those online through your My Disney Experience account. Each Park has Experience Groups for their Attractions and Entertainment and you'll see when you log in and go to the FastPass+ selections that you can pick up to 3 selections per day from one Theme Park. When you make your choices, you'll be able to choose the people you want to schedule the FastPass+ for, so if only you and your older son want to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, you can simply select just the two of you. In the meantime, you can select a different Attraction or Experience for your husband and your 2 younger kiddos.

    This scenario worked for my family on our last visit just a couple of weeks ago and it was great! Please keep in mind though, the different phases of testing can bring on changes, so if you run into any questions or issues with FastPass+ while you're at the Parks, please look for the nearest Cast Member and they'll be able assist you.

    I sure hope this helps, Diane!

    Wishing you and your family a Pixie Dusted vacation!
