    Hi Jason! We are stopping at Magic Kingdom for one day- next wed. only, on way to Sam's gymnastics competition! Because this is so last minute, wondered if you have recs for where to stay and how to get FastPasses ? (our 1st time using new FastPass system

    Hey Beth-

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love when fellow Georgians visit the “Most Magical Place on Earth”. With Sam’s gymnastic tournament and Mickey Mouse on your horizon this trip is sure to score a “10” from everyone.

    Here are my favorites resorts at each level. Disney’s Pop Century Resort (value resort) is a trip down memory lane. Themed buildings from the 50’s to the 90’s accompany a fantastic Hippy Dippy Pool. Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort (moderate resort) offers larger beds and more theming with a fantastic spitting Jaguar slide. Beachfront cabanas and the brightly colored Castias make this resort a wonderful place to relax. Disney’s Contemporary Resort (deluxe resort) is chic and within walking distance to the Magic Kingdom Park. With beautiful views of Bay Lake and Wishes Nighttime Spectacular, I highly recommend this closest resort to the magic. Any hotel where the Walt Disney World Monorail runs through is a place for me.

    FastPass+ system is different from the previous FASTPASS system. First link your theme park ticket through your Disney account in the My Disney Experience website or mobile app. You will then be able to make FastPass+ reservations. With the new system you may pre-select a time to visit an attraction instead of waiting in the queue. These advanced FastPass+ reservations initially are for three attractions. After you have visited your three attractions you may visit a FastPass+ kiosk to receive another one entitlement. You may continue to do this on a rolling basis one at a time until you leave the theme park or until there are no FastPass+ entitlements remaining.

    If Sam needs any help with bouncing for a floor routine, just ask Tigger.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
