    should i get a fast pass for jungle cruise or buzz lightyear space ranger spin

    Hi Caroline!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    When planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, choosing which rides and attractions to get FastPass+ reservations for is a fun decision. FastPass+ helps you fit more magic into your day at the theme parks, while you enjoy smaller lines and shorter wait times for some of your favorite attractions. With FastPass+, you can spend less time in line and more time exploring all there is so see and do at Walt Disney World Resort.

    If you need to decide whether to choose a FastPass+ for Jungle Cruise or Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, there are a few factors to take into consideration. While the lines at both attractions can get long during certain times of the day, the line for Jungle Cruise is under a covered structure while the Buzz Lightyear line can sometimes end up with a queue outside of the building (important to consider in months with hot weather). Both lines move at about the same pace. Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin is a continual ride, which only occasionally stops during the boarding process. The boats at the Jungle Cruise take a bit longer during the boarding process, but also hold more guests.

    It's really up to you which ride to use your FastPass+ reservation on, between the two. We typically like to ride Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin early in the morning, when lines are shorter, and use one of our FastPass+ for Jungle Cruise later in the day.

    I hope this helps with your planning at Magic Kingdom Park. Have a magical day! - Diane W.
