    We have fast pass to Peter Pan Flight at 2:35, but we want to go to the parade too. I’ve heard you need to get your spot 30 min before. So, should we get our spot in Tomorrowland and rush over the ride after? Or do you think we can do the ride first?

    Hey there, Melissa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to hEAR you have already secured your FastPass+ selections for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. Your trip will be here before you know it!

    Peter Pan's Flight is one of my family's favorite attractions and a "must do" when visiting Magic Kingdom Park. That being said, we consider Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade a "can't miss" experience as well. I recommend securing a spot for Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade at least 45 minutes prior to the start for optimal viewing. I strongly suggest viewing the parade from Frontierland or Liberty Square in order to access Fantasyland once the parade has passed your area. I've seen this popular parade "minnie" times in the past and it has always started in Frontierland during our visits. The parade lasts approximately 12 minutes, so you should have ample time to see the parade and then make your way to Peter Pan's Flight before your FastPass+ window expires. I don't recommend trying to ride the classic attraction before the parade if your FastPass+ window begins at 2:35 p.m.

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app to manage your vacation plans, view attraction wait times, get showtimes for parades and fireworks, and book FastPass+ selections and dining reservations while on the go.

    I hope this information has been helpful, Melissa. Let me know if you have any new questions. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip for your family!
