    less than a month away from setting fastpasses for Oct trip.starting to panic as the best way to do them.how long to plan for meals(which I have all reserved).should i do all tier 1s first? do I have to do each day seperately? what has single lines? HELP

    Hello Richard! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    There are so many different elements that go into planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation that it can often feel overwhelming. I always focus on scheduling my main priorities for a day and fill in the schedule around them.

    Having mentioned that you already have your Advanced Dining Reservations scheduled, I recommend that you plan roughly 60 minutes for each Table Service Meal.

    The Tier-system for FastPass+ Selections at the Theme Parks(except Magic Kingdom) separate the predictably crowded attractions from some of the lesser high traffic ones. It's not a matter of selecting certain tiers first, as much as selecting your "must-do" attractions first. Having said that, I recommend booking the following FastPass+ Selections first (if they are on your list)as they are extremely popular and FastPass+ Selections frequently run out:
    • Soarin' or Frozen Ever After in Epcot;
    • The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror or Toy Story Midway Mania at Disney's Hollywood Studios Theme Park ; and,
    • Na'vi River Journey or Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
    Test Track, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain are the only attractions that have single-rider lanes. If you are willing to employ them, they are a great way to save FastPass+ selections while still bypassing long queues.

    WHen you have My Disney Experience choose your FastPass+ Selections for you, the times and attractions are not as perfectly suited to your individual tastes or needs and booking individually yields better results.

    Good luck!
