    I am traveling with my family in the beginning of April and have purchased 4 day passes to see all 4 parks. My children are ages 10 and 3. What are your recommendations to use fast pass on? And what are some must see and do’s in the parks.

    Hi Lisa,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    So much to see and do! If possible, you may want to make some Fast Pass+ selections separately for your 10-year old to ride a few bigger kid rides. When we last took our girls, they were 10-years old and they still loved doing all of the rides, so even if you cannot do a few rides separately, your older child will still have a blast!

    If either of your children are princess fans, you may want to consider doing a Fast Pass+ for Princess Fairytale Hall. We often dine at Cinderella's Royal Table right after visiting Princess Fairytale Hall - the girls always dress as royalty!

    Review the Planning Guide for Pre-School Kids & Little Ones to get an idea of the rides your 3-year old might enjoy. Some of my favorites for little ones are Dumbo the Flying Elephant, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, The Magic Carpets of Aladdin, Mad Tea Party, The Barnstormer, Kilimanjaro Safaris, Na'vi River Journey, and Toy Story Mania! Always check height requirements before making your Fast Pass+ selections!

    For your 10-year old, must-do rides are Avatar Flight of Passage, Test Track, Soarin', RELAUNCHED! Mission: SPACE, Star Tours - The Adventures Continue, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain and Space Mountain.

    Lisa, Epcot, Disney's Animal Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios have a tiered Fast Pass system so review which rides are in which tiers prior to making your selections.

    We also love the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, the Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It! Street Party and the Happily Ever After Fireworks - simply magical!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
