    Preparing to book fast passes for our family of 14, but my husband & I aren't interested in seeing Anna & Elsa with everyone else, but also don't want to go ride something without them and not be able to get fast passes for it later. Suggestions?


    I have a few thoughts on your situation:

    • Be careful of touring the park with all 14 of you in a group. Believe me, I've tried to do it several times unsuccessfully. Between random bathroom breaks and folks wanting to stop "for just a second" to see a store window, the only attractions you may see by the end of the day will be your allotted 3 FastPass+ reservations. With that in mind, don't be afraid to leave the group for a while to have a mini "date" at an attraction that only the two of you might enjoy like Hall of Presidents or the Steamboat. 
    • Continuing that thought, keep in mind that the Magic Kingdom provides a plethora of FP+ attractions so it will be impossible for the group to get one for every "must-do." After you determine your group's FP+ options, treat yourself to a FP+ later in the day on one that doesn't make the group's TOP 3. Use it or lose it. 
    • If you feel you must stay nearby while the group is at Princess Fairytale Hall, consider getting a FP+ for an attraction for the same time in the Fantasyland area that, again, won't be in the group's TOP 3. You'll have plenty of choices in the area. Peter Pan's Flight comes to mind or ride the nearby carousel which rarely has a line and save your FP+ for later in the day for that "mini date."
    • If the thought of getting separated  and stuck at another nearby attraction is not palatable, consider hanging out at Pinocchio's Village Haus and grabbing a table near the window to "people watch" It's a Small World and its fascinating clock.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!
