    Heading to WDW in March for a whole week and trying to hit all parks. I want to make FP choices, but what rides should I add? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!


    I'm going to assume that everyone in your party is tall enough to enjoy all of a park's rides. With that in mind, I'd choose:

    Magic Kingdom:
    Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain. These three rides have the longest standby lines. If you have children in your party, consider choosing Peter Pan or Enchanted Tales with Belle as those lines rarely wane after about an hour into park opening.

    Epcot: Soarin', Mission: SPACE, and Spaceship Earth. Honestly, the only rides that truly need a FastPass at Epcot are Test Track and Soarin' but you have to pick between the two for your Tier 1 FastPass. Although Test Track's standby line can get extremely long, it does have a Single Rider line if you don't want to wait, making Soarin' my choice.

    Hollywood Studios: Toy Story Mania, Tower of Terror and Star Tours are my picks here. Just like Epcot, you have to pick between Headliner Attractions for your Tier 1 FastPass, so it comes down to Toy Story or Rock 'n' Roller Coaster to me. And again like Epcot, because you CAN ride Rock 'n' Roller Coaster as a Single Rider if need-be, Toy Story is my pick.

    Animal Kingdom: Kali River Rapids, Kilamanjaro Safaris, and Expedition Everest top my list. These rides tend to have the longest standby lines, in my experience. If you enjoy interactive cues, consider swapping out Expedition Everest for Nemo--The Musical which can see long lines along the sidewalk and leave you with an unfavorable seat if you're not willing to show up 45 minutes before a performance.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!
