    My question has two parts. First, what rides would you suggest using a fastpass for in Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios (traveling with a four year old boy)? Second, when will the schedule for shows/fireworks come out for November 2014?

    Hi again Julie!

    Welcome back to the Moms Panel! I hope you are having a wonderful time planning your November adventure. I am honored to be able to answer another great question for you. 

    You should begin to see your trip dates on the shows and fireworks calendar towards the beginning of June.  You will have plenty of time to view your options prior to selecting your FastPass+ reservations. Parades and fireworks can be a great choice for your selections, but personally, during the the less crowded time of the year I would use your selections on the popular rides and attractions.  Remember, you have the flexibility to change your selections all the way until you enter the FastPass+ que.  So, if you change your mind, or the stand-by line isn't long enough to require FastPass+, check to see what other options may be available.

    At the Magic Kingdom, we chose meeting Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater because my son loves The Big Cheese.  If there are any characters your son adores and they offer FastPass+,  I highly recommend it.  As a parent, it offered such piece-of-mind to know I had a reserved time to meet his favorite pal.  We also chose Peter Pan's Flight due to its popularity and The Barnstormer. For Disney's Animal Kingdom, again we chose FastPass+ to Meet Favorite Disney Pals at Adventurers Outpost and we selected Kilimanjaro Safaris, and Kali River Rapids (if your son is over 38 inches.) For Hollywood Studios I recommend, Toy Story Midway Mania!, Star Tours and one of the great shows also offered.

    I hope you find these recommendations useful.  Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with further.  

    Happy Planning!
