    Is there some kind of order that I should get my fast passes in? I know Flight of Passage should be first because its popular, but what if You get there at rope drop on EMH do you need to get fast passes or save them for the evening at another park?

    Hey, Darla! My older daughter and I went on a little research mission to Pandora - The World of Avatar last month. Visiting during morning Extra Magic Hours is a great idea and worked well for us. However, while arriving at rope drop, or park opening, is great for experiencing most attractions with little wait, that will really not suffice at this time if you are heading for Avatar Flight of Passage. We arrived a little over an hour before Extra Magic Hours was set to begin and found a small crowd already gathered at the bag check area. Once we were let into the park a short while later, we were quickly hopping on the back of our banshee and cheering "Sivako!" As a comparison, I knew two other families present that same morning, but they arrived shortly before and right as the park opened. They ended up waiting an hour and a little over an hour to board their banshees and dealt with large crowds entering the park.

    Darla, if you think you can get there very early to experience this attraction, then it may be fine to go with your other idea - to secure FastPass+ selections at a park you plan to visit later that evening. However, if you really do not want to deal with a very early morning and with the crowds, then I highly suggest trying to get an Avatar Flight of Passage FastPass+.

    As for other FastPass+ that I think you should quickly look to secure, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park is very popular, as is Frozen Ever After at Epcot. Beyond those, I suggest you start looking for FastPass+ attractions that are important to you. The way I do it is I first look for the three attractions I have mentioned. Once I have them done, then I go day to day, focusing on our favorites.

    Darla, I hope this gives you an idea how to best plan your FastPass+ selections. Please let me know if you have more FastPass+ questions!
