    My 9-year & I are planning on visiting MK 2 days during our May trip. We have Fastpass+ already for LaughFactory, Speedway, UndertheSea, & Splash,Thunder&Space Mnts. What other rides typically have longer lines that we should try to get to when

    Hi Erica,

    How exciting for you both to be visiting Walt Disney World soon! You've nailed the most popular FastPass+ options, Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Space Mountain. You guys are going to have a blast. If I could make one suggestion, I would swap your Monsters Inc Laugh Floor for Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin, if available. Monsters Inc is a theater setting where several guests are allowed in at once. You run the risk of a much longer wait for Buzz depending on when you visit Tomorrowland.

    Your question cut off, but I think you were asking where should you head early in the day to avoid longer lines later in the day? I would head to Fantasyland and enjoy Peter Pan's Flight, it's a small world, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. Fantasyland crowds early in the morning are much lighter than visiting this area of the park at 2:00.

    Also, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the opening of Magic Kingdom's newest attraction, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. It may be open in time for your trip and if possible, I'd swap out another FastPass+ to enjoy this attraction (perhaps Speedway). I anticipate very long stand-by lines for this attraction!

    Any other questions, Erica? I'm happy to help.

    Best wishes for a magical vacation.
