5 Rides Or Attractions You Really Should FastPass At Magic Kingdom

FastPass+ is a system where you can choose three rides or attractions per day ahead of time. You can pick the ride times as well, as long as there is an opening. Walt Disney World Resort guests can make their FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance, for everyone else it is 30 days. Some people love FastPass+ because they are guaranteed a shorter wait for three rides. Others don’t like it because they feel that it takes some of the spontaneity out of their vacations. Here are five of the most popular FastPass+ attractions at the Magic Kingdom, but you won’t be able to get all five unless you spend two days at the park. Remember that you can grab a fourth FastPass after you’ve used your first three reservations. Just find a FastPass+ kiosk in the park and tell the Cast Member there what you’re interested in.

5. Splash Mountain


On Splash Mountain you’ll climb into a log and ride through the film Song of the South. It’s a cute ride, until you get to the five story drop at the end. Splash Mountain is a Disney Parks classic, and you will get soaked. For that reason it’s a good idea to pay attention to the time of your FastPass+. If you ride too early you’ll walk around wet all day. It’s not a bad idea to time your reservation for the middle of the day, when the Florida sun is at its hottest and the ride will cool you off.

4. Peter Pan’s Flight


In some ways Peter Pan’s Flight is the perfect family ride. It’s great for kids of all ages, and it will bring back fond memories for adults. You’ll climb aboard a sailing ship and fly over the streets of London and above Never Land. There are two problems with the ride, making it a good FastPass+ selection. First, it is extremely popular. Peter Pan’s Flight is on most must-do lists, so the line will quickly get long. Second, the ride has a relatively low capacity, meaning that not all that many people can ride at once. If you can’t get a FastPass+ for this one, ride early or late. During the middle of the day the line can grow to be 60 minutes or longer.

3. Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade

Various Lands

If seeing the incredible Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is at the top of your must-do list, you have two choices. You can plan to grab a spot along the parade route an hour early and wait in the sun, or you can try to get a FastPass+ for the reserved viewing area. This is one of the most popular selections, since there is a limited number of spots available most likely they will run out weeks in advance.

2. Space Mountain


Space Mountain is a Disney Parks icon, with five versions across the planet. This dark roller coaster feels like it goes a lot faster than it actually does. The stars and the music add to the experience. Space Mountain is one of the most popular rides at Walt Disney World, and you’ll be glad that you have a FastPass+. If you can’t get one, head immediately that way at rope drop. Otherwise, you’ll be in for a long wait, but at least it’s indoors.

1. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train


The final piece of New Fantasyland is also its most popular attraction. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a family friendly roller coaster. The ride is one of the smoothest that you’ll ever experience, and you’ll love seeing all seven dwarfs at work and the glimpses of New Fantasyland. The standby line can be insane, and a good part of it is outdoors and in the sun. If this is a must-do, make your FastPass+ reservation as soon as you can. It is rare to be able to snag a spot at the last minute.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
