    What are the restrictions for fast passes. For example, I know if you book Soarin', you can't book another "popular" ride like Test Track.

    Dear Vivian,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for reaching out to us about the FastPass+ system at Walt Disney World Resort since it can sometimes get confusing with the four different Parks. 

    You are absolutely correct that at Epcot, the FastPass+ system has two tiers, with Tier 1 including Soarin', Test Track, and Frozen Ever After. Tier 2 includes many other Epcot attractions. Disney's Hollywood Studios has a similar system, with the ability to pre-select one attraction from the top tier and two additional FastPass + attractions from the second tier. 

    In both the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal KIngdom, there is no tiering system at this time.

    When you use My Disney Experience, it will show you clearly which attractions you can choose for each Park, and how many FastPass+ experiences you still have left to select.

    On the day that you are in the Parks, after you use up your first three FastPass+ opportunities, you can select additional FastPass+ experiences for your group one at a time until Park closing. I love the FastPass+ system because my family really hates waiting in lines when we could be having fun doing another activity. This system really allows you to balance waiting and attractions so that your day keeps moving and no one gets bored!

    Have a magical trip!
