    Hi, I am traveling with a 6 yo girl and 4 yo boy later this year. Can anyone recommend where I should use my fast plus passes? We plan on visiting Ak, MK and epcot. Thanks!

    Hi Eleni,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! We on the panel love helping guests to plan magical vacations.

    I am so glad that you are going to take advantage of making Disney FastPass+ selections for your Walt Disney World vacation. Being able to visit some attractions with a shorter wait time can really make your day go smoothly at the theme park, especially with young children. Generally, I find it best to use Disney FastPass+ selections for attractions that build longer lines. Let me give you some thoughts on the attractions I would select in each of the parks that you are visiting considering the ages of your children. Some of the attractions do have a height requirement. I have indicated these in parentheses after the attraction if there is one. For some theme parks I have offered more than three attractions. The ones that you choose will be based on the interest of your children.

    At Magic Kingdom, I suggest that you consider Disney FastPass+ selections for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (38" height requirement), Peter Pan's Flight, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (40" height requirement), Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, and Dumbo the Flying Elephant. In Epcot, consider Soarin' (40" height requirement), Spaceship Earth, The Seas with Nemo & Friends, and Journey into Imagination with Figment. Finally, at Disney's Animal Kingdom, check out Kilimanjaro Safaris, Kali River Rapids (38" height requirement), and Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain (44" height requirement). Additionally, if you are interested in character meet and greets at any of the theme parks, these are great choices for your Disney FastPass+ selections as they are very popular.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Eleni! Have a great time planning your magical vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions.
