    What would be your top three fastpass+ choices as each of the four parks for a family of four. 3.5 yr old girl and 20 month old boy. We already have fantasmic dining package so don't need that one. Thanks mom panel has been so helpful !

    Hi Christine!

    As a mom to two little Mousekeeters that are about the same ages as your little ones, I know how important a good FastPass+ reservation strategy is to having a good day in the parks. I try to get our advanced FastPass+ reservations for attractions that are "must-do" activities for our family and where the standby queue would be prohibitively long. I generally do not reserve parade or firework FastPass+ experiences as we like to find a spot for the parade early, grab a snack for the kids and use the time to give them little break from the hustle and bustle of the park. Sometimes my kids even get a little nap while waiting! Finally, FastPass+ reservations combined with the Rider Swap system allows the adults in the group to enjoy some big-kid attractions too! Check out this post from my fellow Moms Panelist Brandy on how to combine the FastPass+ and Rider Swap systems for your trip. Here are my top FastPass+ events at each park:

    Magic Kingdom:
    • Meet Anna & Elsa At Princess Fairytale Hall
    • Meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater
    • Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid or Peter Pan's Flight
    • The Seas With Nemo & Friends
    • Spaceship Earth
    • Test Track (Rider Swap)

    Disney's Hollywood Studios

    • Toy Story Midway Mania!
    • Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith (Rider Swap)
    • Disney Junior Live on Stage! or The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror (Rider Swap)
    Disney's Animal Kingdom:
    • Kilimanjaro Safaris
    • Festival of the Lion King
    • Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain (Rider Swap)

    Let us know if you have any other questions! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
