    when planning fast passes should i get all 3 in the same land then arrange more passes?

    Hi Janine! I hope you get this in time for your Walt Disney Vacation and all the planning you need to do.

    I suggest you look at all the options in each park and have your family decide which three Fastpass attractions are the ones that they must do. Also look at which ones might have the longest lines as that is the best way to use your Fastpass.  It does not matter if they are in the same land or not as you will have at least an hour between them and you can arrange for more time in between if you wish. In the Magic Kingdom the most popular attractions with the longest lines include the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, Peter Pan, Pirates, and Winnie the Pooh. The Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, and Buzz Lightyear are close behind. Pick the three you would most like to enjoy without waiting in a long line and use those for your Fastpass.  Then try to get to the park early and do a few of the other ones before lines grow long. I suggest you start your Fastpass selections after 11am when the lines become longer for the rest of the day.

    This reasoning would be for all the parks and not just the Magic Kingdom. Get your Fastpasses for the most popular attractions and avoid those 90 minute lines. It might mean moving around more going from one area to the next but you should have plenty of time to sit and rest and enjoy the magic of your surroundings.

    Hope this helps and have a wonderful vacation!
