    While planning fast passes for Animal Kingdom I encountered a problem. After booking Flight of passage for our youngest only, I couldn't get Na'vi river for our whole family on the same day. Thought you could get 3/day?

    Hello, Johannes! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Thank you for bringing your excellent question to our website. You will indeed be able to make three FastPass+ selections in advance per day. FastPass+ is a fantastic benefit to help you save time, so I hope I can help you can make the most of it. 

    FastPass+ options are separated in tiers at EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. This scenario means that some attractions at each Theme Park belong to Tier 1, and some attractions at each Theme Park belong to Tier 2. You will be able to book one Tier 1 FastPass+ option and two Tier 2 FastPass+ selections per day, so it's wise to plan your choices considering this rule. 

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, both Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey are Tier 1 attractions, so Guests must choose one of them to book as their Tier 1 FastPass+ selection. Your remaining choices have to feature Tier 2 attractions like Kilimanjaro Safaris and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, for example.

    Since your youngest already has an Avatar Flight of Passage FastPass+ selection, he will not be able to have another reservation within the Tier 1 on the same day. This logic probably explains why you couldn't book a FastPass+ for Na'vi River Journey for your whole family. If you select everyone but your youngest, you will be able to choose Na'vi River Journey if there is still availability. 

    If you can manage to arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park 30 minutes before its opening, though, you will probably be able to enjoy this attraction with a very short wait. My family and I enjoyed it twice on the same morning last September, and without FastPass+ reservations! 

    I hope that these tips help you make the most of your time at the Walt Disney World Resort, Johannes! If you have more questions before your trip is here, don't hesitate to come back. We're always here to help!

    May the magic be with you,
