    We are going to Disney in 3 wks. The kids age range from 4 -12, adults 23-60, what are your recommendations to use the 3 fastpass each day for each park. Most don't love the thrill rides.


    With such a variety of ages in your group, planning FastPass+ can be a little daunting, especially if the usual choices like the roller coasters aren't the first thing to come to mind. But the new FastPass selection system gives you options for parades and even Character Meets. And for larger groups, choosing these can be just as smart a choice.

    Here's what I'd recommend for you:

    Magic Kingdom: Character Meet waits can be some of the longest lines in the park, and because they don't have interactive queues can be pretty boring for kids. These would be my top picks for your party if the parade FPs aren't available. Peter Pan and Jungle Cruise run third.

    Hollywood Studios: Toy Story Mania is loved by all ages but if you're not biting, choose Fantasmic!. Because Tower of Terror doesn't sound like your cup of tea, choose The Great Movie Ride and Star Tours for your choices.

    Even if you "think" Soarin' is a thrill ride, I encourage you to try it out and make it your Tier 1 pick. After that, choose Spaceship Earth and Nemo, not that you will use the second one.

    Animal Kingdom: Kilimanjaro Safaris tops my list for everyone in your party. Nemo the Musical is a close second, as you must get in line for good standby seats some days an hour in advance. If there is a Character Meet option when you make your reservations, choose it.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
