    What are the top 3 rides in Magic Kingdom & in Animal Kingdom that you would use a fast pass for with a 4 year old boy?

    Hi John,

    I am happy to help you consider which attractions at Magic Kingdom and which attractions at Disney's Animal Kingdom will be good uses for your Disney FastPass+ selections with your little one.

    Before I offer you specific suggestions, let me make a couple of more general comments. There are many attractions at each theme park that appeal to different traveling parties. To that end, take a look at the websites I linked above for a list of attractions at each theme park to see which spark your interest. I also suggest that you take a look at the planning a Walt Disney World vacation with preschoolers webpage, which offers great thoughts on attractions for this age group. Be aware that there are height requirements for some attractions at Walt Disney World. As a 4-year-old, there are some of these that your boy might not make. Height requirements are listed on attraction webpages as well. Finally, remember that you can use Disney FastPass+ selections for character greetings, so you might want to choose some of those as well.

    Some of my favorite attractions to choose Disney FastPass+ selections for at Magic Kingdom are Peter Pan's Flight, Tomorrowland Speedway, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Jungle Cruise, and Pirates of the Caribbean. If you have a slightly more daring child who is ready for some thrills, also check out Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and Splash Mountain. At Disney's Animal Kingdom, check out Kali River Rapids, Kilimanjaro Safaris, and Na'vi River Journey.

    Please do let us know if you have any further questions, John!
