    What do you suggest getting fast passes for at the parks? What are the most popular rides? We are going January 17-24, how crowded do you think it may be?

    Hi again, Kelly!

    Welcome back! I am thrilled to be able to answer another Walt Disney World vacation planning question for you.  January is a wonderful time to visit and the crowds are always a bit lighter.  You will probably notice the resort a little more crowded over the holiday weekend, but things should settle back down towards the end of your trip.  

    Choosing which FastPass+ selections to pick completely depends on who will be visiting with you and what type of attractions your party prefers.  In my family, my oldest loves thrill rides, so we choose attractions like Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, Tower of Terror or Expedition Everest for him.  My other two kiddos are still pretty young, so their must-do's include talking to Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater, visiting Belle at Enchanted Tales with Belle, Toy Story Midway Mania!, Kilimanjaro Safaris or various shows and parades. One of the best things about FastPass+ is that you are able to change your selections later should something else interest you, as long as there are still openings. Be aware that some of the parks do incorporate a tier system in making your selections, which does limit which attractions you are able to select. 

    I'd love to help plan your Fairy Tale vacation further, so if you have a specific park in mind, if you need help creating an itinerary, or anything else, please let me know.

    Have a magical vacation, Kelly. I look forward to hearing from you again soon.
