    When would you recommend getting a FastPass+ for Kilimanjaro Safaris in the morning or the afternoon? Which would you recommend getting a FastPass+ for: Frozen Ever After, Test Track or Soarin' Around the World? Thanks.

    Dear Christy,

    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel about your upcoming vacation! 

    FastPass+ planning is among the most fun parts of the whole Walt Disney World Resort vacation process, so I understand that you want to be prepared and ready to book when you can!

    Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom is among my favorite attractions also! It's a wonderful experience at any time of day, but you might think about booking it earlier in the day because at times the animals are more active than they might be as it heats up later in the day (your results may vary). I recommend that if you are able to take advantage of evening hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom, that you ride the Kilimanjaro Safaris again when it's dusk or dark - it's a completely different and wonderful experience!

    As for your question about Epcot FastPass+ strategy, I recommend that you pre-arrange your FastPass+ for Frozen Ever After. Then, I recommend that you get up and out early that morning so that you are at the entrance to Epcot before it opens. You can then choose to walk directly to Soarin' Around the World or to Test Track to beat the crowds. If you are a party of only adults, I recommend walking first to Soarin' Around the World and then trying the single-rider line at Test Track immediately afterward. That will help with your wait times!

    No matter how you slice it, you are bound to have a pixie-dusted time!

    Have fun!
