Fastpass+ Advice for Young Families

My kids are 5 and under what should we make sure we get fastpasses for?
As you start to plan your Disney getaway it can become pretty overwhelming. The fastpass+ system doesn't have to steal all of your Magical thoughts!!  Remember you can choose 3 total options a day, these will include character meet and greets, shows and rides. Once you use those three you can get one at a time on property inside the park. Even if you have park hoppers you have to do all three of your original fastpasses in one location.

Here is my advice if your chilren are 5 and under:

Magic Kingdom
  • Meet Anna and Elsa
  • Peter Pan's Magical flight
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
  • Meet Ariel
  • Enchanted Tales with Belle
  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Haunted Mansion
  • Jungle Cruise

All available fastpasses:
  • Fantasyland – Barnstormer, Dumbo, Enchanted Tales with Belle, It’s a Small World, Mad Tea Party, Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Meet Ariel at her Grotto, Meet Anna and Elsa at Princess Fairytale Hall, Meet Rapunzel and Cinderella at Princess Fairytale Hall, Peter Pan’s Flight, PhilharMagic, Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

  • Tomorrowland – Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor, Space Mountain, Tomorrowland Speedway
  • Frontierland – Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • Adventureland – Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, Magic Carpets of Aladdin
  • Liberty Square – Haunted Mansion
