    I will be traveling to Disney World in 2 weeks with my two children (12,4). We have never been before. Do you have any advice on which rides to use my fast pass on in Hollywood studios, Animal Kingdom, and Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Tashiba,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting to be preparing for your very first visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth. Your two children are great ages for a vacation in Walt Disney World and I am sure you will all fall in love with the parks when you arrive. Each park has so many great attractions, Character Experiences, shows, parades, and tons of yummy places to eat or grab snacks along the way. You are on top of your planning game by booking those FastPass+ selections before your arrival. If you have not already done so, be sure to download the My Disney Experience App as you can use it to easily book or modify your FastPass+ selections. You will want to check out each attraction for yourself to ensure it is suitable for your children’s ages, interests, and thrill levels. You can easily search the various attractions and entertainment options on the Disney website, filtering your choices based on height requirements, thrill levels, and interests, to tailor more specific FastPass+ selections. Let me provide you a list of some great, family-friendly attractions with no height requirement, for each of the parks.

    Magic Kingdom Park – Peter Pan’s Flight, “it’s a small world”, Pirates of the Caribbean, Under the Sea – Journey of The Little Mermaid, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Mad Tea Party, Haunted Mansion, and Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor.

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios – Toy Story Mania, Voyage of The Little Mermaid, For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration, and Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage.

    Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Finding Nemo – The Musical, Kilimanjaro Safaris, Festival of the Lion King, UP! A Great Bird Adventure, and It’s Tough to be a Bug!

    Epcot – Spaceship Earth, Disney and Pixar Short Film Festival, The Seas with Nemo and Friends, Frozen Ever After, and Living with the Land. 

    My above selections are a great jumping-off point to get you started in making those FastPass+ selections. Remember, there are tons of attractions that you may find better suit your children’s interests and thrill levels so be sure to check those out! 

    I hope you have the most magical vacation! Please stop back by if we can help you with any more of your vacation questions.
