    What fast passes would you recommend at each park for a 13, 11, and 10 year old? Thank you!

    Dear Erica,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your terrific question about park recommendations for your kids! I think those ages are among the must fun ages for a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort because they can enjoy all of the thrill rides while still being young enough to "be a kid" and enjoy the magic!

    It absolutely depends heavily on the individual personalities of your kids, but if they are thrill-seekers as many kids are at that age, I will give you some recommendations!

    For the Magic Kingdom, I recommend Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad for thrills. I would recommend Haunted Mansion too, for some fun spooks!

    For Epcot, I recommend Soarin' Around the World and Test Track, but since those are tiered I would tell you to get a FastPass+ for one and then "rope drop" the other, which means that you should arrive before park opening and make your way quickly to the one for which you do not have a FastPass+.

    For Disney's Animal Kingdom, I recommend Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids, and the NEW Flight of Passage!

    Lastly, for Disney's Hollywood Studios, you might check out Star Tours, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, and Tower of Terror! Lots of fun! Again, there are tiers for FastPass+ there, so plan to arrive early and get another attraction in first!

    Have a magical time with your kids!
