    I know that there are certain restrictions for booking certain rides for FastPass+. What are they for all the parks? For example, you can't book a fast pass for Soarin' and Test Track. Thanks!

    Hey there, Tracey! 

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m glad you brought us your question!

    FastPass+ is a great service that allows you to skip the standby line so you can enjoy even more of the attractions you love at the Walt Disney World Resort! Currently, two of the four theme parks have a tier system. At Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you can make your three initial FastPass+ selections at any of the attractions that offer FP+; no tier system there. You will find the tier system at Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The way this works is that you get to choose one selection from the top tier, then your other two initial selections from the second tier. So, you are correct. If you choose Soarin’ as your top tier selection, you won’t be able to select that and Test Track for your initial three FP+ selections. 

    My advice is to arrive early and head straight to the attraction you didn’t FP+. When I’ve done this with my crew, we experience little to no wait early in the day. Something else to keep in mind is that you will be able to make additional FP+ once you use your third. I usually try to book mine for early in the day, if possible, so I can take advantage of that rolling FP+ later in the day. Bearing in mind this will depend on availability. So, arriving early is a safer bet! 

    If you’re staying at one of Disney’s wonderful on-site resort hotels, one of the benefits is that you will be able to book these FP+ early; up to 60 days in advance! If you’re staying off property, you can begin making these 30 days in advance. 

    I hope you have an absolutely magical time during your stay! Come back and see us again soon!
