One of the best things about Walt Disney World is that you can book fastpasses in order to ensure you get on some of the best rides during your stay. Certain rides, especially the newer ones, can have up to a 4 or 5 hour wait! If you book your Disney World FastPasses right, you will be able to avoid these lines. I wanted to share some of the rides I always try to get fastpasses for.
Keep in mind, I have two young daughters, so some of the rides just don’t make sense for us to fastpass. For example, if you have all older (taller) kids be sure to grab one for Aerosmith’s Rock ‘n’ Rollercoaster at Hollywood Studios. Neither of my girls are tall enough for that ride, so we skip it. But once they are tall enough, you better bet it will be a must do for us when we go.
Currently with the FastPass+ program, you can select 3 fastpasses per day before you arrive at the parks. You can do this 60 days out if you are staying at a WDW Resort, or 30 days out if you are not. I really like that while you are booking fastpasses for the day, Disney shows you each of the parks’ hours for that day. It really helps with planning!
TIP: Book your fastpasses for early in the day because once you use them all, you can start grabbing more (one at a time) using the My Disney Experience App or a Kiosk. Our last trip, we were actually lucky enough to use 12 fastpasses in one day (and two parks!). Below are my top picks for fastpasses, in order of importance. I hope this helps you plan the perfect trip at the most magical place on Earth!
