    Trip is 1/5/15 to 1/15/15, with the lower crowds in Jan. what are the 3 most recommended Fast-passes to get for all 4 of the parks? We will be attending 1 park each day. 2 adults staying at sports resort.


    Keep in mind that early January doesn't exactly mean low crowds now that the Disney Marathon is no longer a best-kept-Disney-secret... However, you'll find lower crowds the farther you are out from the race weekend. My top picks for FastPass+ selections for adults in each park are:

    • Animal Kingdom: Expedition Everest, Kilimanjaro Safaris, and Nemo--The Musical
    • Disney's Hollywood Studios: Toy Story Midway Mania (because you can ride Rock 'n' Roller Coaster in the single rider line), Tower of Terror and Star Tours
    • Epcot: Soarin' (because you can ride TestTrack as a single rider with a short wait), Mission Space, and Spaceship Earth
    • Magic Kingdom: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (whose line is ALWAYS deceptively long) and Space Mountain. If you're into parades, choose the Festival of Fantasy parade instead of Space Mountain. This way, you'll be eligible for additional FP+ selections after the parade and won't be locked out like you would if you chose the night parade.

    The best way to maximize FP+ is to make them for early in the morning, one after the other, so that as soon as you are done with your three, you are eligible to either go to a kiosk in the park to book another one or book with the My Disney Experience app on your phone. 

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
