- Hi Elizabeth,
I think you will find that FastPass+ is going to be a great tool for your November trip. My family used it during our Thanksgiving visit, and it ensured that we got to do all the rides and attractions on our "must" list with minimal waits.
Right now, FastPass+ selections can be made 60 days in advance of your arrival. So you have some time to think about what you want to do and anticipate the fun. Keep in mind that you can't make your selections until you have valid tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account.
The program is still in testing, and I'm sure there may be a few tweaks before your visit, so please feel free to check back again with us for updates.
Now, for the second part of your question: You will find that most of the rides that are appropriate for your 3-year-old will accommodate at least two to three riders per seat. You can do the configuration you suggested on Toy Story Midway Mania, or you can fit the 3-year-old into the car with you and your husband or you and one of the other boys. (By the way, I'm make Toy Story a FastPass+ choice, for sure!)
You will be able to do similar arrangements on rides such as Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, Dumbo, Peter Pan and others. When my daughters were young, I often liked to put them together either in front or in back of us, wherever my husband and I could have the best view of their reactions.
Because your youngest may not meet the height requirements on some rides, you and your husband can take advantage of the Rider Switch program so that neither of you misses out on favorites such as Big Thunder Mountain Railroad or Space Mountain.
I hope that helps. Again, please feel free to check back as you visit gets closer for any new information about FastPass+ or other Walt Disney World experiences. Enjoy!
