    Hi there! I will be visiting the Animal Kingdom Park by myself with my 3 children. Due to being by myself and their ages, we will not be able to ride the bigger rides. What advantage does using my fastpass options on Lion King and Nemo show give me? Thanks

    Hi Devone,

    I've been at Walt Disney World for the past week and used some of my FastPass+ allotment for the Lion King and Finding Nemo shows you mention. Using a FP+ for a show, parade, or fireworks event basically means that you don't have to wait in line early.

    For example, guests may being lining up for the 3:00pm Finding Nemo show at 2:00, and sit there waiting for an hour. With a FP+, you could arrive at 2:55 and be guaranteed a seat with no waiting.

    If you happen to be visiting WDW during a low attendance time of year (mid September, for example) and want to see a show early in the day, then honestly you won't really need to make use of a FP+ for a large auditorium show. However, if you're visiting during a busy time of year or want to see a show late in the day, then having a FP+ can save you lots of waiting around time.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
