What To Use Your Fastpass On At Magic Kingdom

It’s finally time to plan out the details of your trip! You can read my full post on how Disney World’s Fastpass+ system works here.

Now that you have a good handle on what a Fastpass is, you can finally decide what attractions you want to use them on. When my husband and I went to Disney for our honeymoon a few years ago, we made the horrible mistake of wasting a Fastpass on the Dumbo ride(which never has a long wait).

The truth is some rides are not worth using your precious Fastpass on. On the flip side, some rides can have +3 hour waits! Now THOSE are the attractions that are worth your Fastpass.

Here is my guide to what is worth booking in advance:

What To Use Your Fastpass On At Magic Kingdom


I hope this little tip will make your trip that much more magical!

Stay tuned because in the coming weeks I will fill you in on what to use your fastpasses on at Epcot, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom.

What To Use Your Fastpass On At Magic Kingdom

  1. I can’t believe Disney World has fast passes for Peter Pan’s Flight! Disneyland still doesn’t have it for that ride, and every time we go it’s a total madhouse and we never know if we’ll get to ride it!

    1. Wow! I didn’t know that. I haven’t had the chance to go to Disneyland yet, but I’d love to someday 🙂

  2. As usual, you’re right on the money. If you can, go during extra magic hours and hit Seven Dwarfs and Peter Pan. Than you can use your fast passes for Splash Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain, and Space Mountain.

    1. That’s the best way to do it! I’m so excited that we are going to be staying at a resort for the first time in May. I’m gonna reread your Pop blog for some tips!

  3. We are just getting ready to finish planning our Disney trip! I feel like we definitely would of wasted our fast passes on silly rides. I’ll definitely remember which rides it’s important to save for!

  4. I love that you put in what not to use it on. I have reassurance that I didn’t flub up previously. We are planning our trip as we speak!

    1. Yay! I’m so glad it was helpful. I hope you have an extra magical trip! ✨

  5. I’m so glad you included what NOT to use it for & why. Sounds like at DL the rides with lines are somewhat different so good to know for when we go to WDW in 2020.

  6. I wish I had this info 2 years back when I visited Disney land. We used our fast pass where we should not have and later ended up waiting for hours in one of the most popular ride. This is very useful information which can be used to preplan the rides you want to enjoy with children and family. Thank you for sharing.
