Top Fastpass+ Picks

November 21, 2017

 

Picking your Fastpass+ selections for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation can be overwhelming. What rides are worth it? Which Fastpasses should I keep an eye out for? Seabrook Travel is here to help. As self proclaimed Disney Lovers, we have plenty of experience in the parks and we love to share that experience with you!  

 

First, what is Fastpass+? 

Fastpass+ is Disney's gift to you! It allows you to reserve 3 select rides, shows, and attractions per day in one park with limited wait times! If you're staying at a Disney Resort, you can make these selections up to 60 days prior to your check in date. With the purchase of an Annual Pass or Theme Park Admission, you can make your selections up to 30 days before your trip. 

Make your selections using your MyDisneyExperience account online or with the app! Come in anytime and we can help you set up your account, Fastpass+ choices, and dining reservations. 

Once selections are made, you have the flexibility to change your selections. Additionally, new updates in the parks allows you to chose another Fastpass+ selection after your three original choices have been redeemed! 

Redeem your fastpass+ selections using your ticket or MagicBand. 

Still confused? Never fear! Disney is here to explain step by step!

Because Fastpass+ is so popular, we recommend making your selections as soon as possible to ensure your best chance of getting the rides you heart dreams of! If you don't get your top choice, keep checking the app, as selections may become available any time!

 

Now, lets get started!

I've split up the rides into three groups! A list has the highest wait times and therefore have the highest priority! rides with the absolute highest wait times in the park are underlined.  B List rides are not as critical to get Fastpasses for, but still can have high wait times. C List attractions you can usually not get a fastpass+ for and still avoid a long line! Note: Not all attractions are listed. 

The Magic Kingdom

 

A List

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train 

Peter Pan's Flight

Space Mountain

Splash Mountain

Meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater

Any Princess Character Meetings

B List

Pirates of the Caribbean

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

The Haunted Mansion

 

C List

"it's a small world"

Mickey's PhilharMagic

 

 

Note: EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom all organize their attractions into tiers. You can choose one Experience Group 1 attraction, and then two other Group 2 attractions. Each Experience Group 1 attraction has its own pros and cons. 

 

Hollywood Studios

A List

Experience Group 1

Toy Story Mania 

Rock 'n Roller Coaster 

This is a tough pick, because both rides have long wait times and offer very unique experiences. If you haven't gotten to go on Toy Story Mania, I would choose this first, as its common to see wait times over 90 minutes. While in Disney the last time, I saw Rock 'n Roller Coaster as an additional fastpass option once my first three were used, but I never saw Toy Story Mania as that option. For your best bet to avoid the lines on these rides, arrive at the park before it opens. Disney lets guests in before the opening times, and right when the park opens is the best time to avoid the lines. 

Experience Group 2

Tower of Terror

 

B List

Star Tours

Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular 

 

C List

Voyage of the Little Mermaid

Muppet Vision 3D

 

 

EPCOT

A List

Experience Group 1

Frozen Ever After 

Since Frozen is a new ride, when I was in Disney I didn't see the line go below 90 minute wait times. If you're lucky enough to get a fast pass for Frozen, take it! The ride was an adorably magical experience. 

Test Track

Soarin' 

In Disney, there was a few times I saw the wait for Soarin' get down to 15 minutes! I would take the risk and choose Frozen or Test Track over Soarin'

 

B List

Experience Group 2

Spaceship Earth

Character Spot

 

C List

The Seas with Nemo and Friends

Mission: Space

 

 

Animal Kingdom

A List

Experience Group 1

Avatar Flight of Passage

Experience Group 2

Kali River Rapids -If over 80 degrees

Expedition Everest

Dinosaur

Kilimanjaro Safari 

Rivers of Light Fireworks show -When I was at Disney in September, you had to arrive hours before the fireworks to even hope to get seats. If the fireworks show is something you really want, this is the only time I recommend using a precious Fastpass. 

 

B List

Experience Group 1

Na'vi River Journey

Experience Group 2

Festival of the Lion king

Primeval Whirl

 

C List

it's tough to be a bug
