If you want the shortest wait times, it’s imperative that you pick the right attractions for your FastPass+ selections. But certain popular attractions are hard to get, so plan early to make sure you can snag one for your next trip. We’ll go over our short list of attractions we suggest you book a FastPass for… otherwise prepare to wait in a long line. We’ve broken the list down by park for easier organization while setting your plans. Remember, you can only pick three to start, so choose wisely.
The newest coaster to open in Magic Kingdom is a family-favorite. It has garnered high wait times sometimes over two hours.
