    For the magic kingdom, if spending the morning, which rides should be fastpassed and which rides typically have a shorter wait. Trying to plan for the 3 and 1 preassigned fastpasses when we can book 60 days out.

    Hi, Jeremy! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Magic Kingdom is my absolute favorite park at the Walt Disney World Resort! Ever since my first visit at the age of 6 I was captivated by the sights, sounds, and smells. There’s just no other place like it. Makes me smile just thinking about it. 

    Arriving early to Magic Kingdom, and all other theme parks, is a great way to get a good start to your day. Morning crowds are usually light and this will allow you to get in several attractions in less time. That being said, there are definitely some attractions that are very popular and worth locking in a FastPass+ for. Here are my personal suggestions for Magic Kingdom must have FP+:

    1. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train- A family favorite! 
    2. Peter Pan's Flight - A beloved classic
    3. The Mountains: Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain-  Bigger thrills for big kids of all ages. 

    One last tip: I try booking my FastPass+ early in the day so that once I redeem that third initial FP+, I can jump on My Disney Experience app right on my smart device and book more throughout the day!  

    I hope that helps get you started! Have fun planning your magical vacation and fun park days. Do come back and see us again soon!
