    I'm trying to plan for a group of 8. We will be there 3 1/2 days. Suggestions on what parks to visit when? Which require the most time? Will there be enough time for water parks? We are 60 days out and need help with dining and Fast Pass.

    Hi Tara,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My family always spends the most time in Magic Kingdom because there are so many attractions that our girls enjoy there. With Toy Story Land opening on June 30th, I would definitely spend a day at Disney's Hollywood Studios. And, of course, you must take an expedition on Pandora - The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom. You could also try to do Epcot on the half day. If you do, I suggest that you Fast Pass+ Test Track, Mission: SPACE along with one other attraction and then find time to ride Soarin' Around the World.

    Definitely make your Fast Pass+ selections as soon as possible. Book an attraction in Toy Story Land first then choose a few others at Disney's Hollywood Studios. We love Star Tours - The Adventures Continue and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™. On Pandora - The World of Avatar, you need a Fast Pass+ for Avatar Flight of Passage. Also, try Kilimanjaro Safaris, Festival of the Lion King and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain. At Magic Kingdom, our must-do attractions are Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain and Tomorrowland Speedway. Just check the height requirements before making Fast Pass+ selections!

    We always make dining reservations, especially for character meals. Some of our favorites are The Crystal Palace, Cinderella's Royal Table, "Ohana and Chef Mickey's. If you have any little ones in your family, character meals are so much fun!

    Tara, I do not think you will have time for water parks unless you only visit two theme parks - decisions!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
