    Me, my 12, 10 and 8 years old kids. We have a hotel close by (Quality Suites) with free shuttle. Will purchase tickets in the next day. Is there a cheat sheet on how to plan going to 4 Parks (no waterparks) in 4 days. Want to properly plan. Fastpass?, etc.

    Hi, Robert! I bet you and your family are so excited about your upcoming trip - only a couple more weeks to wait until the pixie dust finds you! There is a great planning page devoted to visits with Teens and Tweens, so be sure to check it out.

    Once you have your Disney Theme Park tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account, begin making FastPass+ selections. Be sure to look over the posted theme park hours. Pick a theme park to visit each day, making sure to not pick a park that is hosting Extra Magic Hours that day. Since you are ineligible to attend those, it makes more sense for you to spend your time elsewhere. Look over this list of FastPass+ enabled attractions, which can be filtered by each theme park. An idea is to have each child pick one FastPass+ choice that is most important to them at each park. You will be able to prebook three per day, so that works perfectly for your family! If you initially are not able to get what you need, keep checking back! One thing to note is there are FastPass+ tiers in place at each theme park except Magic Kingdom Park. You will make one selection from Tier One, two from Tier Two. Pop by again soon if you would like to talk more about FastPass+ tiers or would like some FastPass+ recommendations for each park!

    If you are not able to get FastPass+ selections for any of your favorite attractions, be sure to make those attractions your must-do for each day! Try to get to the park as early as possible (I tend to get there well before posted opening time) and head straight to those attractions to experience them with as little wait as possible.

    I hope this information helps you start planning your trip, but please let us know if you have any other questions!

Hi, I'm Brandy, a speech pathologist and busy driver of daughters to marching band and dance events. My Annual Pass is used often to check out new Disney must-dos and resort changes. I enjoy giving advice about itinerary and FastPass+ planning, Epcot's fantastic festivals, Memory Maker, and transportation at the Resort. The time I spend at Walt Disney World Resort is distinctive because it is the one place I can forget other responsibilities and focus on having the time of my life with my family!
