Fastpass Recommendations

Don't get too stressed about which fastpasses to get for your upcoming Walt Disney World Vacation. I get asked a lot which fastpasses people should choose and there is not one "Right" plan.  It really depends a lot on the kinds of rides your family enjoys. However, there are a few rides that are never long waits or that load an entire auditorium at one time. 

  • Pick any 3-there are not Tier levels at this park
  • "It's a Small World" -I would not fastpass this
  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad 40 inch height requirement
  • Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin
  • Dumbo Flying Elephant
  • Enchanted Tales with Belle
  • Haunted Mansion
  • Jungle Cruise
  • Mad Tea Party
  • Meet Cinderella and Rapunzel
  • Meet Mickey Mouse
  • Meet Tinker Bell
  • Mickey's Philharmagic - This is a huge theater, you won't need a fastpass
  • Monster, Inc Laugh Floor-you won't need a fastpass
  • Peter Pan's Flight-surprisingly long waits-get a fastpass
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Seven Dwarf Mine Train  -Usually my first fastpass 40 inch height requirement
  • Space Mountain 44 inch height requirement
  • Splash Mountain 40 inch height requirement
  • The Barnstormer 35 inch height requirement
  • The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
  • The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
  • Tomorrowland Speedway 52” to be the driver of the gocart-This is a great choice if you have kids that love to 'drive' their own car
  • Under the Sea-Journey of the Little Mermaid
  • This park separates rides into 2 tiers. You can pick 1 "great" ride considered Tier 1, then 2 "okay" rides considered Tier 2.

Tier 1
  • Frozen Ever After-if this is a make it or break it for the happiness of your Princess (whether she be 2 or 52...) you pretty much have to take the fastpass! sorry!
  • Illuminations: Reflections of Earth-end of night show
  • Mission: Space 44 inch height requirement
  • Soarin' Around the World-Easily the best ride in this park. 40 inch height requirement

  • Journey into Imagination with Figment-no way
