Mom and daughter on Dumbo

    We are bringing our 4 year old and 2 year old for their first Disney trip in February. One set of grandparents will be there too. I booked our Fast Passes and used them on the big rides (Space Mtn, etc.). Should I change it and book rides for my 2 yr old?

    Hi Jessica! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I'm so excited to hear about your upcoming trip! February is a great time of year for a visit.  Booking Fastpass+ selections in advance is always a great idea.  I would say, keep those bigger rides because wait times tend to be longer for them as the day goes on. Rides without any height requirements may sometimes have shorter wait times, with the exception of Peter Pan's Flight and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.  If you have your heart set on those rides then yes, you should definitely reserve them in advance. When I travel with a bigger group, I sometimes assign different attractions for people in my party using the My Disney Experience mobile app.  For example, if you would like to ride the more thrilling rides with your spouse, keep the selections for those assigned to your park ticket.  Talk to the grandparents traveling with you and see if they might want to visit attractions like "it's a small world" or Jungle Cruise for your mouseketeer while you enjoy your rides. You can then assign the preschooler friendly rides to their tickets.  Getting to the parks first thing in the morning has always worked for my family when it comes to snagging shorter wait times for our little ones. Another way to make sure everyone gets on the big rides is by using rider switch passes. These are magical slips of paper given to you by cast members that allow you to come back with up to 3 other people to ride an attraction that your toddler is too young to ride. Hope this helps!
