    My family and i will be traveling to Orlando to Disney World between August 27-September 3, 2016. Do you recommend getting a FastPass for Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom?

    Hi, Anna!

    Thanks for your question and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    As part of purchasing a theme park ticket, all guests have the option to use the FastPass+ system, which I highly recommend!

    The FastPass+ system allows guests to skip the long lines at their favorite attractions or shows and enjoy the magic! So yes, I would use the FastPass+ for Disney's Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom. Each park has very popular attractions, and the wait can seem endless without FastPass+. 

    You can choose up to 3 FastPass+ options initially at one park per day. For Animal Kingdom, I would suggest reserving a FastPass+ for Kilimanjaro Safari, Expedition Everest, and Festival of the Lion King. Once you have used those 3 FastPass+ selections, you can then choose the 4th selection, use it and then choose another and so on. After you use the first 3 selections, you can choose a FastPass+ for any other park if you have a park hopper. If you don't have the park hopper, you can choose another Fastpass+ in the same park. All of this is done by using your My Disney Experience App or at one of the kiosks located in the park.

    For Magic Kingdom, my favorite FastPass+ selections are Seven Dwarf Mine Train, Space Mountain, and Splash Mountain! 

    Since FastPass+ is free, it just makes visiting the parks even more magical!

    The time of your visit may have higher crowds, so using FastPass+ is the perfect solution.

    Happy planning!
