    My wife is pregnant and won't be able to ride some of the attractions. When setting fastpasses for our family, can we get fastpasses for rides we know we can't go on, so we can get more fasspasses after we use our 3?

    Hi Sean,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Fast Pass+ selection day in my household is exciting. I am happy to see you considering multiple possibilities!

    I am not sure that I am interpreting your question correctly, so please submit a follow-up if this response is inadequate! Since your wife may not be able to experience some of the same attractions due to her pregnancy, it seems that you have two decisions - 1) do you want to ride together all of the time? or 2) do you want to split up and experience different attractions? Since I am not quite sure of the ages of everyone in your family, I am not sure if choice two is a viable possibility.

    If you have one older child and one younger child, you could potentially ride the thrill rides with the older child and let your wife ride with the younger child. At Magic Kingdom, this would mean she could possibly ride Peter Pan's Flight, Dumbo the Flying Elephant and "it's a small world" while you and the older child ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Space Mountain. Of course, pay close attention to the safety warning signs at each attraction. 

    Sean, if you decide to stay together, it would mean that you skip the rides that she cannot ride for safety reasons. Whatever you do, I would not make Fast Pass+ selections that will not be used. If you were to make Fast Pass+ selections for attractions that your wife could not ride assuming that you could later make additional Fast Pass+ selections to match the ones that she did not use, that may not be possible. In my experience Fast Pass+ availability on the day of our visit has been limited - the ride and/or the time window you want may not be available.

    Good luck with the rest of your planning!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
