    If we don't set up FastPass reservations in advance, will we still be able to enjoy some of the rides? We're visiting in mid-January with our daughters (ages 4 and 2) for our first visit and we're hoping to let them wander a bit vs. running between rides.

    Hi Stephanie,

    Of course you will be able to enjoy rides if you don't make FastPass+ selections in advance! However, you might spend more time waiting in line than you would prefer. If I were in your shoes with 2 young daughters, I think I would still take advantage of the FastPass+ system.

    For example, at the Magic Kingdom you could make selections for Enchanted Tales with Belle, Peter Pan's Flight, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. You could spread the times apart to give your family time to wander but still enjoy wonderful attractions with a shorter wait. 

    If your princesses are interested in meeting Disney's royalty, Cinderella and Rapunzel or Anna and Elsa, I would certainly try to find FastPass+ selections to shorten the wait. 

    Please let me know if you need suggestions for the other parks or if I can help you with any other questions!
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
