    I have my kids and grandkids going to a park visit in Nov. There are 17. All are managed under my Disney experience. Can I get the fast pass for everyone in the group? Can others reserve at the same time? I am worried I will miss out if I mess this up!!

    Hi Sandra,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Wow! Mickey and Minnie Mouse are just tickled to know that you are bringing the whole gang to visit them at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    If you do indeed have everyone linked in your My Disney Experience account, you could make Fast Pass+ selections for everyone and everyone could ride at the same time. My suggestion would be, however, to consider everyone's interests and ages. Remember also to check the height restrictions on rides.

    You may want to split the group for some rides. That could be tricky. Just be sure to keep note of your Fast Pass+ selections as you go. Once you have discussed which rides and attractions everyone wants to do and you have checked the height requirements, prioritize your Fast Pass+ selections.

    We prioritized Avatar Flight of Passage and Splash Mountain on our last trip. Those were the Fast Pass+ selections I made first. For popular attractions, you may have to take whatever is available. For Avatar Flight of Passage, you may need to make this Fast Pass+ selection for a day towards the end of your trip since the ride is so popular. 

    Also, make sure you understand the tiered system for rides. At Epcot, for example, you can only select one ride out of the following list - Soarin', Frozen Ever After, Test Track and IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. You can then choose two rides from the tier two list. Since we wanted to do Frozen Ever After on our last visit and did not want to stand in a long line, I made a pre-park opening breakfast reservation for 8:10 a.m. at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall. We were done with eating and in line to catch a boat to Arendelle by 9:10 a.m.

    Sandra, sending pixie dust your way for patience as you plan. You can do this!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
