    Hi Moms! So excited for our August visit!! Which attractions do you recommend getting a fast pass+ for MK, EP & HS? We've been to Disney with the old fast pass system and we were wondering how the new system will affect availability of fast passes.

    Hi Nancy,

    August will be here before you know it, and you'll be back at the Happiest Place on Earth. How exciting! With the new fastPass+ service, it's so refreshing that we can select our FastPass times before we even arrive at the parks. I love that I can get the whole family on those super popular rides, and not have to worry about missing out on some of our favorite parades and shows because we are in a queue for a ride. 

    Now, everyone has their own favorite attractions within Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios, but here listed bellow are the rides that seem to have the most fans, and that you may want to schedule a FastPass+ selection for:
    • For Magic Kingdom, you'll want to hit up "the mountains." Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, and my favorite, Space Mountain are musts. By the time you visit in August, The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train should be open for fun, so add that one to your list as well.
    • For Epcot, The top two FastPass+ attractions are Soarin' and Test Track. The only issue is that you can only get a daily FastPass for either one, not both. I'd go with Soarin' as it's always a big hit and has a long queue. For other selections, I suggest Maelstrom and Living with the Land.
    • For Hollywood Studios, be sure to schedule a FastPass+ selection for Toy Story Mania. This attraction is popular because mostly everyone in the family can ride, so mostly every family makes a point of riding it when they visit the Park. Being a Star Wars geek, I always recommend Star Tours as a selection, and if you love scary but fun rides, you have to check out The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

    I hope this answer helped you, Nancy, If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask at anytime and i would love to help you. 

    Have a fantastical Disney day!
