Best Attractions to FastPass at Walt Disney World
Fastpass+ is Disney’s virtual queuing system, which gives guests a one hour window to attend an experience with a much shorter wait time. Disney allows each guest to pre-select three FastPasses to use in one park each day of your trip, and they are available for many rides, shows, and character meet and greets.
According to my six-year-old princess, these are the FastPasses and experiences a young princesses-in-training just must have during her trip to Disney!
Meet Anna and Elsa at Princess Fairytale Hall – At writing this is the hardest FastPass+ reservation to get. I booked FastPasses for a friend recently who was staying off site, and there were none available at midnight on the 30 day mark, or at any time I checked within that 30 day window. If you cannot FastPass this attraction and your princess just must see Anna and Elsa, head straight to the meet and greet when the park opens. Other options to view these two princesses are to go to the Frozen Sing-Along Celebration in Disney’s Hollywood Studios (no meet and greet or photo ops) or to catch the afternoon parade in the Magic Kingdom (no meet and greet or photo ops).
Seven Dwarfs Mine Train – Disney’s newest (and tamest) roller coaster, this is a great first roller coaster for kids. *Must be 38 inches or taller to ride. Rider swap is available.
Enchanted Tales with Belle – This interactive storytelling experience allows children (and adults!) to become a part of Belle’s story.
For dining, reservations made ahead of time are called Advanced Dining Reservations. These can be made up to 180 days in advance. For meals that are must-dos for your family, Advanced Dining Reservations are a must.
Cinderella’s Royal Table, located inside Cinderella’s Castle, is the dining location of choice for all princesses.

All three original FastPass selections on a given day must be booked for the same park. FastPasses are connected to your park tickets, and may be booked online 60 days before your trip (if you are staying at a Disney resort) or 30 days before your trip (if you have your tickets but are staying off property). Once you have used all 3 of your FastPasses, you may obtain an additional FastPass at the kiosk within the park. FastPasses can be booked on the My Disney Experience app or website.
