    Will I need to reserve a fast pass for my 4 year old if she does not intend to ride the ride the rest of us are going on? Example: Space mountain for my me, my wife, and 8 year old and we will use parent swap. I'd like to save FP for her

    Hi William,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! This is an excellent question and I am delighted to answer.

    Yes, you may certainly reserve different Fast Pass+ selections for your family. Just remember that your 4-year old will need someone 14-years old and over to ride with her.  So you or your wife will need to save one of your Fast Pass+ selections to ride with your 4-year old on the other ride she chooses.

    Here's another option - once you and your wife use your initial three Fast Pass+ selections in the park, you can use the My Disney Experience Mobile app or a Fast Pass+ kiosk to make a fourth Fast Pass+ selection. 

    You could then make your 4-year old's unused Fast Pass+ selection at the same time you book your (or your wife's) fourth selection in the park. By doing so, you, your wife and older daughter can use your three Fast Pass+ selections on rides of your choice. I offer one word of caution, however, Fast Pass+ availability can be limited on the days you are in the parks so if you wait, there may not be many choices remaining.

    When you are in My Disney Experience making Fast Pass+ selections, the system allows you to choose the members of your party for each Fast Pass+ selection. Once you are done making selections, just be sure to double-check!

    Hopefully, you have seen the Planning Guide for Pre-school Kids and Little Ones. It will give you great tips for making your youngest daughter's trip extra special.

    William, it sounds like you are doing fantastic planning!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
