    Hi. We are going to disney in August. I think it's time to almost get my fast passes, but I'm not sure how to do this? And which should I get fast passes for? I know peter pans flight and Anna and Elsa but I'm not sure what else I need to fast pass?

    Hi there Brian, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your Walt Disney World plans are really coming together. If your vacation is in August, then your 60-day window for making FastPass+ selections will be here any day, so let's make sure you get your "must-do's"!

    Yes, Peter Pan's Flight and the Anna and Elsa meet and greet are both very popular attractions that can see wait time exceed an hour as the day goes on. It is possible to ride Peter Pan's Flight on standby if you arrive at the Magic Kingdom at park opening and go straight there. The early morning wait is usually shorter but builds through the day.

    The most popular attractions are generally the ones you'll want to use a FastPass+ selection for. Here are a few others to consider:

    • At the Magic Kingdom, you might add Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or one of the Mountain rides (Splash, Space, Big Thunder).
    • At Epcot, you should use a FastPass+ selection for Soarin' or Test Track. Since Epcot uses a tiered FastPass+ system you can't select both, so we usually do single rider line for Test Track.
    • Disney's Hollywood Studios also uses the tiered system. First priority is Toy Story Midway Mania, then Rock 'n' Roller Coaster, Twilight Zone Tower of Terror or Star Tours: The Adventures Continue.
    • At Disney's Animal Kingdom Park, the Kilimanjaro Safaris often have a long wait and Expedition Everest is also very popular, so those are good FastPass+ choices.

    Your FastPass+ strategy depends on your family's interests and your Theme Park touring schedule, but I hope this helps get you started on making those selections. Please stop by and see us again if you have any more questions, Brian. We love to help!

    Have a magical day,

    Kathy K.

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
