    Hi! I need advice for FastPass+ for Christmas week. We will only be in Magic Kingdom one day. Is it necessary to use one of our options for the fireworks? We prefer to use them for attractions, but we are not sure what to do in this case. Thanks!

    Hi Heidi!

    I love visiting Walt Disney World during the Christmas holiday.  I used to travel yearly with over 30 members of my family and we always had a jolly good time.  I hope you and your crew make unforgettable memories together during your visit.

    I personally use my 3 advanced  Disney FastPass+ selections to experience attractions my family loves at the Magic Kingdom.  I don't use them for fireworks viewing as you can see the fireworks from almost anywhere in the park.   You can always find a nice place to sit and enjoy a snack while taking in the magic of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular.  Christmas week will be busy and you may want to use your advanced selections for popular attractions such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train,  Peter Pan's Flight and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.   And remember after you use the first 3, you can always visit an in park kiosk and get an additional FastPass+ selection based on availability.  You can keep doing this until the day is over.  So you may be lucky and sneak in a few extra FastPass+ selections by not choosing the fireworks as an option for your family.  As you can only make additional selections once you use your initial 3 you pre-selected. 

    Whatever you decide to do, I wish you a very merry holiday.   Please stop by again with any other questions you may have about your upcoming magical vacation.
