We are heading to Orlando in June for our first trip to Disney. Two adults and three children ages 16, 12, and 8. I’m needing advice on how the FP reservation works.
The 16 and 12 year old will ride some rides like Tower of Terror and Rockin Rollercoaster that me, my husband, and 8 year old won’t ride. Am I able to book FP for three of us on certain rides and different FP at the same times for the 16 and 12 year old? How does that work? Are there videos or something to show how to do this?
I think we will rope drop most days, so for HS example, the 16 and 12 year old will do Rocking Rollercoaster or something, while we take the 8 year old to do, say, Toy Story Mania. Then hopefully we can all get fast passes together later for other rides, even TSM again for all of us so that the 16 and 12 year old can ride it. I figure we would be able to ride some things multiple times with the 8 year old and focus on getting the older two kids on each ride once. Do families don’t this often? Is it safe for a 16 and 12 year old to go off for a couple rides together without an adult? They will have a phone with them.
One last thing. We have 6 day tickets- will do MK for 2 days and each other park for 1 day. What other park do you recommend doing for the 6th day, maybe even just half the day while the other half is spent at the pool. Or do you suggest a middle of the trip full pool day and only do 5 days in the parks?
