    We are four couples going to Magic Kingdom with a 9month old. Splash Mountain will be closed so please suggest us the best rides and times for fastpass reservations.

    Hi Rimsha,

    I am glad that you are thinking ahead to plan your Disney FastPass+ selections for your day at Magic Kingdom! Disney FastPass+ service will allow you to select up to three experiences before your vacation to experience with shorter wait times. It is a great way to maximize your time in the theme park.

    As to which attractions to use Disney FastPass+ selections for, I generally look for attractions that tend to be popular and build long queues. These might be attractions that the baby cannot go on due to height requirements, so you can also take a look at Rider Switch Service and decide how to use these in conjunction with Disney FastPass+ selections. My fellow Moms Panelist Lindsey P. recently wrote a great answer about using Rider Switch and Disney FastPass+ service together.

    If you are considering attractions that the baby will not be able to ride, I suggest Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain, and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. For rides that the baby would be able to go on, but that adults would enjoy as well, consider Peter Pan's Flight, Jungle Cruise, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant. As for timing, I like to make my Disney FastPass+ selections for early in the day. Once you have used your third selection, you can make another selection, and then another one, and so on, for the rest of the day based on availability.

    Please do let us know if you have any further questions, Rimsha!
