    Hi- first timer bringing two sons, 5&7. Fast pass opens tomorrow & I am pretty clueless. Any recommendations on rides/attractions? And which ones are in which parks? Help please! Thanks! And what time does fast pass booking start?

    Hey Rachelle-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Let me share the best thrills and fun that Walt Disney World theme parks offer. Your FastPass+ window opens 60 days before your visit if staying on property while only 30 days if off property. Once you use all your initial prescheduled FastPass+ selections you may receive more on a rolling basis one FastPass+ selection at a time from kiosks around the theme parks. I have noted the attractions to make FastPass+ reservations by theme park. Of course, you must meet the wonderful Disney characters also.

    Magic Kingdom Park
    *Seven Dwarfs Mine Train(do at park opening)
    *Splash Mountain(FastPass+)
    *Big Thunder Mountain Railroad(FastPass+)
    *Jungle Cruise(FastPass+)
    *Pirates of the Caribbean
    *Peter Pan’s Flight (soon after park opens)
    *Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
    *The Haunted Mansion

    Epcot - has a tiered FastPass+ System one attraction in Tier 1 and two in Tier 2
    *Test Track Presented by Chevrolet/Soarin' (both Tier 1)- FastPass+ reservation for one and the other visit when you arrive at park opening
    *Mission Space(FastPass+)
    *Turtle Talk with Crush(FastPass+)
    *Living Seas with Nemo and Friends

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    *Toy Story Midway Mania(FastPass+)
    *Hollywood Tower of Terror(FastPass+)
    *Star Tours-The Adventure Continues(FastPass+)

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park
    *Kali River Rapids(FastPass+)
    *Kilimanjaro Safari(FastPass+)
    *Festival of the Lion King stage show
    *TriceraTops Spin
    If your 5 year old is 42 inches tall then face the Yeti in Expedition Everest-Legend of the Forbidden Mountain when the park first opens.

    Rachelle, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
