    I am visiting in January with my adult daughter. When we pick our fast pass, do we each get 3 choices? Also, is there a list of the rides that need fast passes the most due to long lines?

    Hi Diane,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am happy to assist you with planning for Fast Pass+ selection day (yes, I call this an official day)!

    When staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, each guest with valid theme park tickets can make Fast Pass+ selections 60 days in advance. Each of you will be able to make three Fast Pass+ selections per park per day that you have valid theme park admission. Although there is no official list of rides that need Fast Pass+ due to long lines, these are the rides we typically do with Fast Pass+:

    • Magic Kingdom - Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain
    • Disney's Hollywood Studios - Star Tours - The Adventures Continue, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, Toy Story Mania!
    • Disney's Animal Kingdom - Avatar Flight of Passage, Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Forest, Kilimanjaro Safaris
    • Epcot - Test Track 

    Fast Pass+ is tiered at certain theme parks. This means that you can only select one ride from the most popular attractions, then you select your remaining two rides from the second tier. At Epcot, for example, we have to choose one attraction from Test Track, Soarin', Frozen Ever After and IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth in Tier 1. Here is a link to another answer from my fellow Moms Panelist Ritzy - she explains the rides in each tier.

    Diane, be sure you have downloaded the My Disney Experience Mobile App. When we are in the parks, we use the app to add our additional fourth "rolling" Fast Pass+ after we have done our initial three Fast Pass+ rides.
