    Wondering how to best use fast passes when park hoping. Extra magic hours for animal kingdom in the AM then Epcot in the pm. Is it a bad idea to assume we will get a fastpass for frozen ever after that day after we use our 3 fast passes at animal kingdom?

    Hello Trisha!
    Thanks for asking us a question on the Disney Parks Moms Panel! There are many ways to plan your FastPass+ selections when you are planning on visiting two Walt Disney World theme parks in the same day. Since you are planning to go to Disney's Animal Kingdom as your first park of the day and then to Epcot, I am going to recommend that you make your FastPass+ selections at Epcot (your second park) especially since you are wanting to experience the Frozen Ever After attraction. Frozen Ever After is extremely popular and FastPass+ for this attraction go quickly (there is a high probability that there will not be FastPass+ availability for this attraction later on in that same day after you have used up your 3 FastPass+ selections in Disney's Animal Kingdom). Also I would advise you to arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom 30 to 45 minutes before the park is scheduled to open on that particular day and go straight to Pandora - The World of Avatar to the Avatar Flight of Passage attraction first and then Na'vi River Journey for the least amount of waiting in line without a FastPass+. Then you can experience other attractions in Disney's Animal Kingdom using the standby lines. The more you can do first thing in the morning in Disney's Animal Kingdom before crowd levels get larger is better according to my experience. I hope your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
