Mom and Child wearing Magic Bands

    Which rides should we use the Fast Pass on in Magic Kingdom? We are traveling with two 7-year olds.

    Dear Delvida,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about FastPass+ planning in the Magic Kingdom.

    The good news about FastPass+ is that there are no wrong choices. That being said, there are some attractions that have longer wait times typically than others.

    For 7 year-olds, I recommend a FastPass+ selection for Seven Dwarves Mine Train for sure! I would definitely try to sign up for that right away at the 60-day mark if you are staying on-site or the 30-dayy mark if you are staying off-site. Another one if your kids like thrill rides is Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. That one is popular and FastPass+ selections tend to run out early. 

    Do your children like to meet characters? The lines for character meet-ups can be a bit slower sometimes, so that might be a good use of a FastPass+ selection if you have a particular princess whom you'd like to meet!

    Another recommendation from someone who loves the "classics" is Peter Pan's Flight, which is a lovely and nostalgic romp through the Peter Pan story and is wonderful for all ages. 

    Moms Panel tip - Did you know that after you use your initial three FastPass+ selections, you can continue to choose additional FastPass+ selections one at a time throughout your day, depending on availability!
