    . I do not quite understand the Fastpass tier program . So I get a fastpass for a ride I want , but then if I want another fastpass and they are both a tier one then I cant get them both ? And where do I find the list of what ride is under what tier group?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Janice!

    When planning a visit to Walt Disney World, it's a great idea to maximize the fun and minimize the time waiting in line by utilizing the fantastic--and free-Disney FastPass+ service. So glad you asked about it!

    Disney FastPass+ service utilizes tiers in some parks, enabling Guests to enjoy more of the most popular attractions by spreading out attendance throughout their vacation. At the time of this writing, Guests may select 1 attraction from Tier 1 options in 3 parks: EPCOT; Disney's Animal Kingdom Park; Disney's Hollywood Studios. (Right now, there is no tier system in place in Magic Kingdom Park). 

    Currently, EPCOT Tier 1 attractions include EPCOT Forever, Frozen Ever After, Soarin' Around the World, and Test Track. Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park Tier 1 options are Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey. Disney's Hollywood Studios Tier 1 attractions are currently Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, Slinky Dog Dash, and Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway.

    We typically chose our park touring partially based on FastPass+ availability, visiting the same park on two different mornings so that we can maximize our FastPass+ use. For example, start a day at Disney's Hollywood Studios and enjoy Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, then hop onto the standby lines for many other great attractions. Head over to EPCOT later in the day and include a fantastic dinner, capped off with a viewing of Epcot Forever. On another morning, begin the fun back at Disney's Hollywood Studios, then hop over to Magic Kingdom Park and enjoy many classic attractions, a great meal or two, and catch Happily Ever After for an unforgettable end to your magical day.

    When booking your FastPass+ plans, you'll see the tiers right there in your My Disney Experience account and in your My Disney Experience mobile app. Keep in mind that these tiers are subject to change as new attractions open, so any list you may come across elsewhere may no longer be accurate by the time of your arrival.

    As you plan your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, Janice, be sure to send us more questions. We love to help!
