Top 10 Mind Blowing Experiences to Use FastPass+ for at Walt Disney World

FastPass+ is designed to make your Walt Disney World vacation easier by allowing you to spend less time in line. You can pick up to three FastPass+ selections in advance, and then when you’re in the park and you’ve used those you can make a fourth selection from the My Disney Experience App. Here are ten mind blowing experiences that you might want to use FastPass+ for. The choices here usually have fairly long waits and will often run out of FastPass+ in advance.

10. Magic Kingdom Princesses

Magic Kingdom

If meeting princesses is near the top of your Walt Disney World must-do list, there are plenty of them to meet at the Magic Kingdom. You might want to use at least one FastPass+ selection to make it happen. You can meet Cinderella or Rapunzel at Princess Fairytale Hall, and they’ll each have a friend with them. Ariel meets guests in her grotto, and you can see Belle in Enchanted Tales With Belle. Your mind will be blown by the attention to detail leading to any of these princesses, you’ll feel like you’ve walked into their stories. You will need a separate FastPass+ for each of the experiences listed here, so you won’t be able to make them all in advance.

9. Splash Mountain

Magic Kingdom

Splash Mountain is a Disney Parks classic. The ride is so special that there are three different versions of it across the planet. Splash Mountain will blow your mind at the end with the five story drop, but the rest of the ride is special as well. You’ll float through Song of the South, waiting for the payoff at the end. You’ll encounter over 100 Audio-Animatronics along the way. The line quickly grows long, especially on hot days. You’ll be glad you have FastPass+.

8. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is one of the biggest thrills at Walt Disney World. The indoor roller coaster reaches 60 MPH; but you’ll feel like you’re going even faster. There are three inversions along the way. There are two things about Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster that will blow your mind. First, it’s set to the music of Aerosmith. Second, the indoor ride is in the dark. What is not indoors is a good part of the queue line. On a hot, crowded day you’ll want FastPass+ so you won’t have to wait outdoors.

7. Soarin’


A different type of thrill can be found at Epcot. Soarin’ has been updated with a new movie that will allow you to hang glide around the world. The scenery alone will blow your mind! There is now a third theater, which has helped cut down on lines to some degree, but the ride is still extremely popular. Skip the wait, and make a FastPass+ reservation instead.

6. Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Many thrill ride enthusiasts claim that Expedition Everest is the best ride at Walt Disney World. It doesn’t go upside down, but that doesn’t matter. If you love roller coasters, prepare to have your mind blown. You’ll zoom in and out of the mountain, and you might meet a scary, hairy stranger along the way.

5. Peter Pan’s Flight

Magic Kingdom

If you’re looking for a quiet ride for the whole family, try Peter Pan’s Flight. You’ll fly in a pirate ship above scenes from the 1953 classic movie. Parents will enjoy it, while little ones will have their minds blown. FastPass+ runs out quickly for this popular ride, so grab one if you can. The ride doesn’t have a huge rider capacity, which causes the line to grow throughout the day.

4. Toy Story Mania!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

This is another must-do for the whole family. Parents will have their minds blown just by looking at the walls and seeing larger than life versions of games that they knew as a child. The kids will enjoy playing the carnival style games with their favorite Toy Story characters. It’s a win win for your entire family, especially if you have FastPass+ and don’t have to wait in line for 90 minutes.

3. Kilimanjaro Safaris

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

If you want to blow your mind at Kilimanjaro Safaris, make your FastPass+ reservation as early in the day as possible. That is when the animals are most active. If you can’t get an early reservation, you’ll still want to use FastPass+. Each trip is different, it all depends on what the animals are up to.

2. Frozen Ever After


The Frozen craze continues at Epcot. Frozen Ever After opened in June, 2016, and it was an immediate hit. If you have any Frozen fans in your party, their minds will be blown every second. The line will be insane, even just a few minutes after the park opens. If you plan to ride, FastPass+ is essential.

1. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

Magic Kingdom

The final attraction added to New Fantasyland is also arguably the best. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a roller coaster that is fun for most of the family, the height restriction is only 38 inches. There are two hills, but neither of them are big. In the middle you’ll slow down and see all seven dwarfs at work. What will really blow your mind is the smoothness of the ride. Fans of Snow White’s Scary Adventures will be glad to see some of the elements have been added into the ride.

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.
