Best Rides to Book a FastPass for in the Magic Kingdom
Top Magic Kingdom Fastpass Choice – Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Ride
The longest lines in the Magic Kingdom tend to be Peter Pan’s Flight and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, so both of these are great choices for a FastPass. However, since it is still a new ride, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (7DMT) tends to attract a long queue starting at rope drop. The height requirement is 38 inches, but it’s packed full of thrills for all ages. If we had to choose one major ride to book FP+ with, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train would be it.
Other Priority Fastpass Choices: The 3 mountains (Big Thunder, Splash and Space) are also high on our list of priorities. If you are a wimp like me, on the other hand, I would aim for Jungle Cruise, Character Meet and Greets, and Buzz Lightyear Ranger Spin and Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid.
What to Avoid Booking
While all of these rides are amazing, some do not necessarily warrant a Fastpass selection. Their queues are so short (less than 30 minutes) or the waiting area is so entertaining, that you will not want to skip the lines. When you only have 3 choices – it is important to make the right choice.
We would avoid fastpassing Dumbo, only because they have a great play area while you wait. Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor, Mickey’s PhilharMagic and it’s a Small World also tend to have the shortest lines – or fastest moving lines.
General FastPass+ Information
What Does FastPass+ Cost?
There is no fee to use FastPass+ — it’s available to everyone and free with park admission.
When Can I Book FastPasses?
Guests staying at Disney resort – otherwise known as ‘on-site’ – are able to make their Fastpass reservations up to 60 days in advance of their check-in date. Off-site guests, those staying at an outside hotel, are able to make their reservations at 30 days before check-in.
How Many FP+ Reservations May I Make?
Before heading to Walt Disney World, guests are able to make an initial 3 reservations. Once you have used these 3 pre-selected FastPasses, you can then make additional FastPass+ reservations, one at a time, while you are at Walt Disney World, through your smartphone app or at an available Kiosk.
How Does a FastPass+ Work When I’m in the Theme Parks?
Most FP+ ride reservations specify a one-hour window during which you may enter the attraction.
When you arrive at an attraction with your FP+, you’ll be directed to a separate, shorter “FastPass+ Return” line. To enter the line, you must validate your reservation by touching your MagicBand or RFID ticket to a reader at the FP+ Return entrance.
