    I have a 9 year old thrill seeker who loves roller coasters and fast rides! Please help me plan my days in each one of the parks as far as what fast passes to sign up for and what time of the day! Thanks!!!

    Hi, Carrie!  It took me until my last child to get a thrill seeker!  After years of being ride weenies, having a little sister who is a daredevil converted my older two, and now the thrill rides are the things we hit first!

    At Disney's Hollywood Studios, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is your must do attraction.  I'd definitely FastPass that one.  Not a roller coaster, but also a must do for my own thrill seeker, is Tower of Terror.  Straight up and straight down - but you'll never know how many free fall drops you'll make.  So exciting!

    You won't want to miss Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom.  This coaster can see long lines, so you'll want to FastPass it if you can.  Other great choices at Animal Kingdom include Primeval Whirl, and "wild mouse" type of coaster, or the other big thrill ride there, Dinosaur.

    EPCOT doesn't have a coaster, but for the adventurous, you want to check out Test Track, Mission Space, and Soarin'.  If you have time, check out the Sum of All Thrills at Innoventions and Maelstrom in the Norway pavilion.

    Finally, the Magic Kingdom is home to the mountains!  Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, and Space Mountain are not for the faint of heart, but you'll want to make sure your coaster kid checks them all out.

    Have an absolutely amazing time!
