    Fast passes and tiers... list/recommendations?

    Hi Emily,

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    FastPass+ selection day is an important day in my household. Like you, we map out our FastPass+ strategy for each park prior to the day we can make those FastPass+ selections so that we are ready! At Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, and EPCOT, there are FastPass+ tiers. Some attractions (generally the most popular) are in Tier 1 while the remaining attractions are in Tier 2. At present, guests may choose ONE attraction from Tier 1 and TWO attractions from Tier 2. Here are the current Tier 1 attractions at each theme park:


    **Disney's Hollywood Studios - Slinky Dog Dash, Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run

    **Disney's Animal Kingdom - Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey

    **EPCOT - Soarin' Around the World, Test Track, Frozen Ever After, Epcot Forever


    Note that, depending on the dates of your visit, the nighttime show at EPCOT may be "HarmonioUS." As much as I love Epcot Forever, we are looking forward to seeing this spectacular new show. Also note that upcoming new attractions will be added to the FastPass+ tiers. Visit the Disney Parks Blog to take a First Look: Inside Remy's Ratatouille Adventure at Epcot. As of now, Magic Kingdom does not have FastPass+ tiers but we always make our FastPass+ selection for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train first, then we make FastPass+ selections for Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, or Space Mountain. If you will have little ones with you, be sure to check the height requirements for each attraction using the Attractions List before you make those FastPass+ selections. Using that list, you can search attractions at all parks and resorts or you can select a specific park.

    Emily, I also suggest that you plan those FastPass+ selections with geography in mind considering how close attractions are to each other. We tend to do Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad back to back because they are in close proximity to one another. Finally, we prefer to do our FastPass+ selections early in the morning so that we can make an additional FastPass+ selection as soon as we have ridden those attractions or the FastPass+ time windows have expired. Be sure to have the My Disney Experience Mobile App downloaded so that you can make additional FastPass+ selections in the park!

    Sprinkling pixie dust as you make those FastPass+ selections!

    Magic and memories,
