    Visiting Feb 7th-14th, 9 people (kids/girls 11, 10, 9, 2). 3 days at MK, 1 day at HS, 1 day at AK...what would you use the FP+ on? Which rides, fireworks, parades, etc? Thanks!

    Hi Jagena,

    This question will get you so many different responses that I can only state what I think is important for my family. We have two daughters now 15 and 17 who have been visiting Disney since they were 2 and 4 so that is the perspective I am coming from to give my thoughts.

    First, if the children know about the trip, ask them. These thoughts outweigh any advice I can give to you. If they do not, you will have to judge what they like and determine if it is FastPass worthy as the current system allows only three FastPasses a day per person.

    My thoughts on a strategy is to avoid using a FastPass on any attraction that loads quickly like Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin or the Jungle Cruise. These lines move fairly quickly. New attractions like Toy StoryMania Midway Spin, Test Track or Soarin' are popular and load slower so these are worth the FastPass.

    In my opinion, parades, fireworks and shows are not worth the FastPass. You can usually find a good spot to see the parade or fireworks and the shows load hundreds of guests at a time. 

    If you have a FastPass to spare, then use it on a show or parade or even a character greeting if that is important to you.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
