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. 


MAGIC KINGDOM
  • Pick any 3-there are not Tier levels at this park
Rides
  • "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
