    Our family includes 8 adults and one child. We plan to get Fast Passes for her to meet Mickie & Minnie, Ariel, and Cinderella. If we all want to be there to see her meet the characters, do all of the adults have to reserve a Fast Pass, as well?

    Hey there, Kelly! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. 

    You have got to be getting so excited for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. It is right around the corner! If you have your tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account, you can actually make your FastPass+ selections now. Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can make their selections up to 60 days in advance and Guests staying at other hotels can start making their selections 30 days in advance. Any Guest that enters the FastPass+ queue for an attraction will be required to have a FastPass+ selection for that specific attraction. So, yes, all of the adults in your party would need a FastPass+ selection to see her meet all of the characters.

    If you don't want to use a FastPass+ selection for meeting characters, another great way to still be able to spend some time with them is to book character dining experiences. We did this a lot when my daughter was younger and obsessed with character meet and greets. It saves a lot of time waiting throughout the day because you aren't waiting in lines at the park, the characters come to your table while you are eating. Knocking out two birds with one stone kind of thing. Cape May Cafe at Disney's Beach Club Resort has a fabulous character breakfast that the whole family will enjoy. The food is wonderful and Minnie and her pals are dressed up in their beach attire ready for a fun day in the sun! It's a unique photo opportunity with them. Another great character meal is the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast at the Trattoria al Forno Restaurant found on the BoardWalk. Here you can dine with dynamic duos like Ariel and Prince Eric and Rapunzel and Flynn Rider as they set out around the room to welcome all of their Guests. It's a really fun breakfast with some really great food. I think that your entire group would love a character meal and being able to use that FastPass+ selection for a different experience. 

    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask.

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
