    Since I do not foresee getting a fastpass+ for the Mine train at 30 days, I am hoping to ride it with minimal wait at the Christmas party. Has anyone had experience riding it at the Halloween party and how long were typical waits then? One month to go!

    Hi there, Brook!

    Don't give up on checking for FastPass+ availability for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train for the duration of your trip.  As Guests change plans, availability does often change.  If you still have no luck, I think your plan to ride during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is a good one.  During Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party on a recent trip, I did the very same thing.  I will say that, in my experience, lines for attractions seem lighter during the first parade of the night.  If you don't mind attending the second one, you might consider queueing up then for the Mine Train.  Our wait time was under 20 minutes!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I wish you a truly magical vacation.
