    Hi Robert,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your question made me laugh out loud!

    Although you may have made those Fast Pass+ selections already, you should be able to make modifications now if needed. First, be sure you have checked the height requirements using the Attractions List. Our girls' absolute favorite ride now is Avatar Flight of Passage on Pandora in Disney's Animal Kingdom but you must be 44 inches tall to ride. At Disney's Animal Kingdom, also make Fast Pass+ selections for Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, Kilimanjaro Safaris or Kali River Rapids.

    At Magic Kingdom, we always do at least two days so we plan for six Fast Pass+ selections there. Those always include Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, and Tomorrowland Speedway. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Peter Pan's Flight (it is a somewhat dark but super fun ride), and Astro Orbiter are also must-do rides for us. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, we love all things Star Wars. Star Tours - The Adventures Continue is awesome. Our girls have repeatedly tested their lightsaber skills at Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple. Recruits must arrive early to sign-up so we always do a pre-park opening dining reservation at Hollywood & Vine.

    Finally, at Epcot, we ride Soarin', Test Track, and RELAUNCHED! Mission: SPACE. The Fast Pass+ system is tiered here, so you will have to choose between Soarin' and Test Track for your Tier one Fast Pass+ selection. We always Fast Pass+ Test Track and do the stand-by line for Soarin'. Our girls love to design their own cars at Test Track.

    Robert, since I am not sure how your kids define scary, I suggest you take a look at some of the rides on YouTube. We found videos posted by past guests helpful!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
