The Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom each offer an awesome array of thrill rides, dark rides, and attractions. Disney uses what’s called a FASTPASS system that lets you skip the regular standby line on three rides of your choosing. FASTPASSES are free, but you have to be quick. FASTPASSES become available 60 days in advance of your check-in if you are staying in a hotel on Disney property or in some hotels close to Disney Springs and only 30 days in advance if you are staying anywhere else.
The following are attractions that are “FASTPASS worthy”—meaning that getting yourself a FASTPASS could save you hours of time over the course of an entire day. This isn’t a ranking of the best rides, it’s simply a list of what rides have the longest waits, and therefore the rides we recommend trying to obtain a FASTPASS.
- Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
- Peter Pan’s Flight
- Space Mountain
- Splash Mountain
- Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
- Test Track*
- Frozen Ever After*
- Spaceship Earth
*Unfortunately, you can only choose one of the first three (Test Track, Soarin’, or Frozen Ever After) in advance.
- Slinky Dog Dash*
- Toy Story Mania!*
- Alien Swirling Saucers*
- Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster
- The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
*Unfortunately, you can only choose one of the first three (Slinky Dog Dash, Toy Story Mania!, and Alien Swirling Saucers) in advance.
*Unfortunately, you can only choose one of the first two (Flight of Passage or Na’vi River Journey) in advance.
Although you can register for only three FASTPASSES before your visit, once you visit the park and use them you can sign up for more, but only one at a time. Keep checking. You could luck into picking up a popular FASTPASS that another person just canceled.
