    Hi. I'll be visiting MK on Tuesday February 26th and 27th with my 5 1/2 & 7 1/2 year old girls. I'd like advise for which rides to reserve fastpass for (and at what times) we'll probably arrive at opening each day. Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Greg! How exciting you and your daughters have an upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World! 

    I have limited space but will try to give you some ideas. Magic Kingdom Park has so much to offer that it is great to hear you all will be visiting twice!  

    There are several attractions and experiences you can select to use a FastPass+ at Magic Kingdom Park; however, you should strategically choose what to use a FastPass+ selection on so that it is worth it as some of these attractions might not have long lines at a given time.

    Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is still a favorite since its opening in 2014, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (check for height requirement), and of course, Peter Pan's Flight, remain as the most popular ones. If you think your princesses will not be scared of dim lights and the theming, you might want to take them to Pirates of the Caribbean or The Haunted Mansion, which are considered must-do classics! If they love Meet & Greets, they might want to visit Mickey y Minnie Mouse at Town Square Theater, where they will be able to interact with them, get their autographs and picture taken. 

    Something a lot of people do not know is that once you have used your three FastPass+ selections, you can have more! So try to schedule them for the morning or the early afternoon so that you can get more after you've used them up. To do this, you can visit a FastPass+ kiosk or try doing so from the My Disney Experience app. 

    Here is a list of attractions that you can filter according to your girls' interests.
    I hope these ideas help with your planning, Greg. If you have any more questions, please come back and see us again!

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
