Our top 12 attractions and experiences to reserve through Walt Disney World’s new FastPass+
FastPass+ has taken Disney’s famous FASTPASS service to a whole new level!
With the new FastPass+ you can choose from more than twice as many attractions and experiences to reserve than ever before, and - for the first time ever - it now includes select Character Greetings, shows, parades and fireworks. But that’s not even the best part…you can now reserve your Walt Disney World attractions and experiences before you even leave home!

You can find out more about Walt Disney World's FastPass+ here

So, once you’ve got over the shock of this revolutionary new service, you can start thinking about what attractions and experiences to reserve (the exciting part!). But you need to choose your reservations wisely; after all there's only one of you and an endless amount of amazing attractions to choose from. So to help you along the way, we have suggested three attractions and experiences in each Disney Park that are must dos, so check them out…

1.       Seven Dwarf’s Mine Train at Magic Kingdom

The newly opened, one-of-its-kind coaster - Seven Dwarfs Mine Train - has been acclaimed by Simon and Susan Veness as a "firm family favourite". This magical ride is a must do for any Disney fan!

Fun fact: Music from the classic Disney film can be created in the queue, by moving from spigot to spigot at the jewel washing station.

 

2.       Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom

This high speed roller coaster is a true Disney classic that’s not to be missed on any trip to the Magic Kingdom!

Fun fact: Space Mountain is the oldest operating roller coaster in Florida!

 

3.       Wishes Night-time Spectacular at Magic Kingdom

This spectacular firework show is enough to reduce even the toughest of men to tears (and believe us it has). It’s the perfect way to spend an evening making magical memories with your loved ones.

Fun fact: Wishes is several times bigger than the previous fire work show at Magic Kingdom - Fantasy in the Sky.

 

4.       Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom

Enjoy panoramic views of Animal Kingdom on this exciting, high-speed, high-altitude, roller coaster train ride!

Fun fact: Expedition Everest is the tallest “mountain” in Florida.

 

5.       Kali River Rapids at Animal Kingdom

This 12-passenger raft ride is perfect if there’s a group of you that all want to enjoy a ride together. But be prepared, you WILL get very wet…soaked in fact!

Fun fact: Before you reach Kali River Rapids there’s an enclosure on the right and hanging is a clay pot with a hidden Mickey cut out of it - see if you can spot it when you’re next there!

 

6.       Festival of the Lion King at Animal Kingdom

If you’re a fan of the classic Disney movie The Lion King and enjoy a good show…this is the one for you. Located in Africa at the new Harambe Theatre, this spectacular production is as big as a Broadway show!

Fun fact: Following the first ever show run in 1998, many performers went on to star on Broadway.

 

7.       Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster at Hollywood Studios

One for the thrills seekers! This high speed roller coaster accelerates from 0-60mph in a matter of seconds, and with a specially recorded Aerosmith soundtrack playing in the background…you will feel like a true rock star!

Fun fact:  Aerosmith attended the opening of the attraction in 1999 and band members Steven Tyler and Joe Perry rode it 12 times in a row!

 

8.       The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Hollywood Studios

Terror lurks around every corner of this crumbling hotel…and once you take your seat on in the haunting elevator things just get even worse! You will be shot up and plunged down at speeds so high you will have to hang on for dear life!

Fun fact: The Disney Imagineers watched 156 episodes of “The Twilight Zone” to inspire them whilst creating this terrifying attraction.

 

9.       Muppet Vision 3D at Hollywood Studios

This hilarious 3D film is a great attraction that the whole family will love…and won’t be able to resist having a good belly laugh!

Fun fact: In the pre-show there’s a sign telling you a key has been left under the mat….check it out, there actually is, but it is stuck to the ground.

 

10.   Test Track at Epcot

Ever wanted to design your own custom vehicle and then ride it at peak speeds of 65mph? Well with Test Track you can, and at the end you will even be tested on how well your car was designed!

Fun fact: Each Test Track vehicle will travel almost four times the amount of miles an average U.S. car is driven in a year!

 

11.   Mission: SPACE at Epcot

Here is your chance to experience what it’s like to be an astronaut and plunge into an out-of-this-world space launch on this shuttle simulator.

Fun fact: Motion sickness bags were added to the attraction shortly after it opened…which is enough to tell you that it’s not for the faint hearted!

 

12.   Turtle Talk with Crush at Epcot

A fantastic real-time Q-and-A session allows you to communicate directly with Crush and let him know anything on your mind….this is one that will amaze the little dudes!

Fun fact: No two shows are EVER the same, so you can enjoy a different experience time and time again.

 

So there they are, our top 12 FastPass+ selections, though we’re sure everyone will have their own personal favourite top 12’s. But if you’re still struggling to choose, Disney will also recommend some attractions and experiences (FastPicks) to help you along the way.

And remember all of the Attraction Tickets Direct Disney tickets are FastPass+ ready, so you can start planning your Disney itinerary as soon as you receive them.
