    Trying to plan what FP to book. We will be at WDW week after Thanksgiving. My daughters will be 8 and 3 and don't ride roller coasters. Which would be the best use?

    Hi, Alicia!

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Planning a trip to Walt Disney World should always include how best to use Disney's FastPass+; excellent start!

    Many guests prefer to use a FP+ for character greetings, so consider if this is something that your girls would like, too. However, if you are going to meet some of your favorite Disney folks at a character dining reservation, I would save your FP+ options for the most popular attractions instead.

    At Magic Kingdom Park, pick three of the following: *Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin; Dumbo the Flying Elephant; Enchanted Tales with Belle; Jungle Cruise; *The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh; *Peter Pan's Flight; Pirates of the Caribbean. Once you have used the third FP+, pick another from the list. They are all classic attractions that sometimes have a long wait in the standby lines.

    Epcot: *Frozen Ever After (a FP+ MUST); *Soarin' (40" minimum height requirement); Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros; The Seas with Nemo & Friends; Spaceship Earth

    Disney's Hollywood Studios: *Toy Story Mania!; Star Tours - The Adventures Continue (40" minimum height requirement); Muppet*Vision 3D

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park: *Kilimanjaro Safaris; It's Tough to be a Bug!; Kali River Rapids (if it is a warm day; 38" minimum height requirement)

    Keep in mind that the most popular attractions' FastPass+ availability (*) book up quickly; if your FP+ booking window opens at 30 days (60 days for guests staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel), know what you'd like before that, and secure those plans early the morning your window opens.

    Ask more questions as you think of them, Alicia; we love to help!
