    We are planning a visit to Magic Kingdom and Epcot with our 5 and 7yr old girls and need suggestions for fast FP. We want frozen and Peter pan but we are unsure what else to pick. Should we use it for parades?My 5 yr old doesn't like fast rides

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Karol!

    Planning a trip to Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot with your little ones is super-special. I am so excited for you!

    If your girls are early risers, make those FastPass+ plans as early in the day as you can. Because you may pick up to 3 FP+ in one park each day, but get to add another FP+ once you've used that third (and another after you've used the 4th), you'll want to get through your first 3 as early in the day as you can.

    1st: Frozen Ever After at Epcot. This attraction is popular, so all FastPass+ arrival times are taken quickly. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, your window opens 60 days prior to arrival. If you are a ticket holder staying off-property, your window opens 30 days prior to arrival. Get yours 1st thing in the morning on the day your window opens.

    Other FastPass+ options at Epcot I recommend for your family are Turtle Talk With Crush and The Seas with Nemo & Friends. We also love Spaceship Earth and Disney & Pixar Short Film Festival. If you'd like to meet some Disney characters, then use a FP+ for Meet Disney Pals at the Epcot Character Spot. If your daughters are both 40" or taller, don't miss Soarin'; that line will be long, so head there early.

    At Magic Kingdom Park, Peter Pan's Flight is very popular, so get that FP+ first for your MK day. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a good 1st coaster (38" height minimum) and may be mild enough for your little one. It's popular, so if you want to ride, get a FP+ for that as well. Next, either Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin or The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, both of which may have longer lines than other attractions.

    Have a magical visit, Karol! Send more questions as you plan; we love to help!
