    What are the best rides to book fast pass for for Animal kingdom, hollywood studios and magic kingdom? My kids are 11-14 in ages. They are all between 4'10" and 5'8" tall. Thanks

    Hi, Mary! It's so much fun to book FastPass+ reservations, knowing you'll have some great experiences to look forward to with your family.

    At Disney's Animal Kingdom, we always get FastPass+ for Kali River Rapids, especially if your trip is in the summer; Expedition Everest, which is a must do even for our 9-year old youngest; and DINOSAUR, which is thrilling fun for the whole family.

    When we go to Disney's Hollywood Studios, we HAVE to get a FastPass+ for Toy Story Midway Mania. We have a long standing competition among our family to see who can score the highest.  If your gang is big into thrill rides instead, definitely snag those passes for Rock'n'Roller Coaster and the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, maybe adding in Star Tours.  FastPass+ here usually is a tiered system, where you can choose one from Column A and two from Column B, so you may have to choose between Toy Story and Rock'n'Roller Coaster.  You can choose different options for different members of your family, so if you have some thrill seekers and some less adventurous members in your crew, you can send some to the more exciting attractions and other can do something a bit less of an adrenaline rush.

    The hardest FastPass+ to snag at Magic Kingdom is the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, so you may want to grab those if you can, especially if you haven't ridden before.  Others you might want to get include the mountains - again, for those thrill seekers.  Splash Mountain and Space Mountain are popular with my kids, as is Big Thunder Mountain.   

    Have fun choosing your magical adventures!
