    Hi, We are going to be in the Magic Kingdom with our 6year old from 3/13-3/16. Which rides for that age group are the busiest and would you recommend getting fast passes for right away?

    Hi, there!

     Katherine, you'll be in Magic Kingdom Park in just a few days. How very exciting! Using Disney's FastPass+ service is a fantastic way to maximize precious time in the theme parks. As a mom of three, I especially love this Guest perk because my kids do not wait well, and FastPass+ gets us to the fun faster! I have some great FastPass+ suggestions for your 6-year old.

     Peter Pan's Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Jungle Cruise, Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, and Haunted Mansion are FastPass+ worthy attractions. These rides are appropriate for all ages, and typically post high wait times, especially in the afternoon. If your 6-year old is a thrill seeker, search FastPass+ availability for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. You can view a list of FastPass+ eligible attractions at Magic Kingdom Park for more information about each ride. 

     With your visit just around the corner, you may find limited availability for some of the harder-to-get FastPass+ attractions, like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Be creative in your search! A FastPass+ arrival window is an hour long. You may not find the exact hour-long window for everyone in your group, but as long as everyone in your group has an overlapping period of time, you can enjoy the attraction together! I once made four separate FastPass+ selections for everyone in my family. Among the four, we had an overlapping window of 15 minutes, so we watched the time carefully and shared the experience together with no wait!

     Wishing you a magical visit, Katherine!
