    We have two daughters that we're traveling with - ages 19 and 12. Any suggestions for the first choices of attractions that we should reserve under the fast pass? And should we reserve one for the fireworks?

    Hello, John! Your vacation is just around the corner. I bet you're getting so excited about visiting Walt Disney World with your daughters! I visited with my teenage nephew a few months ago, and let me tell you this - it's so much fun to visit Walt Disney World with a teen (or two!) 

    Some FastPass+ attractions that were a hit with my teen nephew:
    • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and the "mountain" rides at Magic Kingdom Park (Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad).
    • DINOSAUR, Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, Kali River Rapids, and Kilimanjaro Safaris at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. You can even reserve access to the big-as-Broadway show Festival of The Lion King, if there is a particular show time that you want to experience.
    • At Disney's Hollywood Studios, my nephew really enjoyed Star Tours - The Adventures Continue, Toy Story Midway Mania!, and The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
    • Soarin' and Test Track at Epcot are two of my family's favorite attractions, and both are great FastPass+ options.
    As far as fireworks go, I can only advise you to check with your family on their preferences. While there are no "bad" places to view the nighttime fireworks displays, some viewing locations are better than others. The one drawback to reserving a FastPass+ for the fireworks is that you will be unable to add another FastPass+ attraction until after the fireworks are over, but if having the perfect view of the fireworks is a priority to your family, I say go for it!

    I hope that you have a wonderful vacation to Walt Disney World, John. If you have any additional questions before your visit, please do not hesitate to contact me here at the Moms Panel. Happy planning!
