Planning Your Walt Disney World Vacation – Part 5 FastPass+, MagicBands and Luggage Tags

60 days before your trip you can book your fast passes on the My Disney Experience site or Ap. This is where you make sure you get to ride the most popular rides. In the Magic Kingdom the new king of all rides is a Princess and her 7 buddies. The Seven Dwarf Mine Train is a family roller coaster that consistently has 80 minute wait times (must be 40” tall). Others that have long lines are Splash and Space Mountains and believe it or not Peter Pan’s Flight (one of our favorites). If you want to ride these rides without giving up a few hours I recommend a fast pass. Or if you want to ride the ride twice, wait in the standby line and get a fast pass.  When planning FastPasses one thing to consider is the Experiences vs the Rides.  In the Magic Kingdom for example one of your FastPasses can be to Meet Anna and Elsa, this can be a huge time saver for families with children that want to do this.  Other experiences are reserved seats at Fireworks or Parades.  For our trip this October we have 2 experience FastPasses and the rest are rides.
