    I have selected my fast passes but could only pick one option per day/park from the Fast Pass+ list and then could only select from the "Other Experiences" list for the the other two....why is that? Really limits what we can do

    Hi There, Karen, and Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I know you must be eager to finalize your FastPass+ selections so that all you have left to do for your February trip is to start packing!  

    Karen, I believe what you are referring to is the tiered FastPass+ system. Depending on when you last visited the Walt Disney World Resort, this may be new for you. The tiered system is in place in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Epcot and will allow you to select one Tier 1 attraction together with two Tier 2 attractions. In the Magic Kingdom, there is no Tier system, and you are free to select any three attractions that are available!  

    In Disney’s Hollywood Studios, all of the rides in Toy Story Land (Alien Swirling Saucers, Toy Story Mania!, Slinky Dog Dash) as well as the thrill rides (Rock’ n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror) are considered Tier 1 attractions.

    Please note that FastPass+ selections are not available at this time for those attractions located in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run is operating on a stand-by system only while Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance is currently using an electronic boarding pass system

    In Disney’s Animal Kingdom, you may select one of the Pandora – The World of Avatar attractions, either Na’vi River Journey or Avatar Flight of Passage. You may then select any two other attractions in the park to round out your FastPass+ selections. I always make sure that I grab a FastPass+ for Kilimanjaro Safaris as this is a can’t miss attraction!

    In Epcot, Test Track, Soarin’ Around the World, Frozen Ever After, and Epcot Forever are all considered Tier 1 attractions. Karen, I believe that Test Track is scheduled for refurbishment during your stay, so this selection may not be available. 

    It is important to know when you are making your daily FastPass+ selections that all pre-selections for the same day must be in the same park. 

    Karen, did you know that once you use your three pre-selected FastPass+ reservations, you may get more? Simply hop on the My Disney Experience Mobile App and select “Get FastPass+” from the menu. While these selections can only be made one at a time, there is no limit to how many you can use!

    I hope that this helped, Karen, and please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can be of any help as you plan your magical vacation!
