    Jennifer from GA Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My family of four is planning a visit to Disney. When choosing our FastPasses, do we all to get the same ones? My younger son might not enjoy the rides that my older son does. I'm hoping we can split up and make everyone happy.

    Hello Jennifer!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It is a pleasure to answer your first question - a very good one by the way. 

    You will be happy to know that you can make different FastPass+ selections for each member of your party depending on their interests. You can even pick different times for the same attraction. For an upcoming visit my mother is riding Avatar Flight of Passage in the morning, while I’ll be enjoying it later in the day with my husband and daughter. 

    When you make your selections, you will be able to choose the Guests you will be making a particular selection for. Please note that Park Rules require Guests under 7-years-old to be accompanied by a Guest 14-years-old or older to board an attraction.

    You can start making FastPass+ selections 30 days before your visit or up to 60 days in advance if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel. You can make 3 initial selections for the same park for each day of your visit, and after you have used your first 3 choices you can make a 4th selection using the My Disney Experience app or FastPass+ kiosks located at all parks. 

    Moms Panel tip: after you have entered the FastPass+ return queue to use your 3rd selection, use the My Disney Experience app to choose a 4th attraction while you wait to ride. You don’t have to wait until you have exited the attraction to make a new FastPass+ selection, unless you need to use one of the FastPass+ kiosks. After using the 4th selection, feel free to make another and so on.

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Come back real soon!

    Best magical wishes,
