    We are in the process of setting up our Fast Passes. Do you know of a list by each park that gives top recommendations of what rides to use with our Fast Passes?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christy!

    You must be very excited about one of the best parts of planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort: making FastPass+ selections! Don’t forget that if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel you can start making your selections up to 60 days before arrival.

    There is no official list of recommendations because choices depend on the age of the Guests in the party, their height, interests and other factors. Little ones have different interests than tweens and teens, for example. I am going to share with you my personal selections for each theme park, but I always recommend that you do your homework with your family at home and check all attractions that offer FastPass+ to see which ones are important to you.

    At Magic Kingdom Park I always select Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, and Splash Mountain. If I am visiting for a second day then I also secure a spot for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean. Some Guests always make sure to select Peter Pan’s Flight. Our top picks at Epcot are Soarin’ Around the World, Spaceship Earth and Character Spot to meet Mickey and friends, but for other Guests their priority might be Test Track or Frozen Ever After. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios we make selections for The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Star Tours – The Adventures Continue, and Toy Story Mania! At Disney’s Animal Kingdom I highly recommend Avatar Flight of Passage, Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, and Kilimanjaro Safaris.

    Thank you for stopping by, Christy! I hope this helps you plan FastPass+ selections for your favorite attractions, and that you come back to visit us with more questions!

    Best magical wishes,
