    Making my Fastpass+choices for January 2014 trip. Wondering if its worth using them for fireworks/shows or strictly for rides. Should I get FP+ for Toy Story Mania instead of Fantasmic or Lights, Motor, Action? Will I get seats for the shows? Thanks MP!

    Hi Tammy!

         I have tried out the new FastPass + system and I really like it. The FastPass + for fireworks or shows will let you in to special viewing areas and you do not have to arrive as early as if you were waiting in the regular line. The main benefit is that you will not have to wait for a good viewing spot (typically you would have to wait 45 to 60 minutes or more to secure a prime view spot for for fireworks or shows). All that being said, I would recommend using your FastPass + for rides such as Toy Story Midway Mania because the wait times for this attraction can typically range from 90 to 120 minutes or more. Typically you can get seats for Fantasmic or Lights, Motors, Action if you are willing to wait 30 to 45 minutes before the show is scheduled to begin.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World trip is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
