    Hello! 2 related questions. We are going March 17-21 this year. Generally, how is the crowd that week? Then what would be good Fast Pass selections for Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, Epcot and Animal Kingdom. We will have a 2, 4 and 5 year old.

    Hi, there!

     Staci, I'm so excited to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with little ones in tow. How magical!

     Traveling to the theme parks in mid-March usually means you'll see Spring Break crowds, which can range from moderate to high. Don't let that worry you! My family of five always visits during busy times, and we always manage to dodge the crowds. Be sure to arrive to the theme parks early in the morning to experience the lowest wait times of the day. We take an afternoon break when the parks are the most crowded, and then return in the evening when the crowds begin to thin out a bit. My family also dines just ahead of regular meal times (11:00 AM for lunch and 5:00 PM for dinner) to avoid super-busy restaurants.

     To best utilize your time in the theme parks, you'll also want to be sure to select your FastPass+ experiences as soon as your "booking window" opens up. I'm happy to give you FastPass+ recommendations for your family! At Magic Kingdom Park, Peter Pan's Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, and Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin are great family-friendly options for FastPass+. You may also want to consider Seven Dwarfs Mine Train; your youngest will surely be too little, but your bigger kiddos may be just the right size! For other attractions that your baby is just too little for, use Disney's Rider Switch service. At Epcot, include Frozen Ever After, Turtle Talk with Crush, and Spaceship Earth in your FastPass+ plans. For Disney's Hollywood Studios, choose Toy Story Mania!, Disney Junior Dance Party!, and For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration. In Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, you'll want a FastPass+ for Kilimanjaro Safaris, Na'vi River Journey, and Festival of the Lion King.

     Staci, please let me know if you have any other questions. I'd love to help you plan!
