I'm visiting WDW Jan 21 - 30 2014 we're very excited! When it comes to pre booking our fastpass we're stuck on which three magic kingdom rides would be the best to choose. My daughter is 5, what rides would be worth the fastpass for magic kingdo

April, of course you are excited! In only a few weeks you will be flying with Peter Pan, sailing with pirates, and eating Mickey ice cream bars.
If your five year old princes is enchanted with Disney princesses, consider choosing Princess Fairytale Hall for one of your FastPass+ picks. The chance for a meet and greet with Cinderella or Rapunzel and a princess friend for pictures, autographs, and hugs is an excellent way for a fan of royalty to use a FP.
Does your daughter adore excitement, plummeting downhill, and zipping around curves? Then use a FastPass slot or two for some of the peaks in the always popular Magic Kingdom mountain range. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad takes passengers of 40 in or more and is a rollicking good introduction to thrill rides. Think twice before making a reservation on Splash Mountain; the weather in January might be too chilly for a log flume. Grab your tape measure to make sure your child is at least 44 inches before booking a FP for Space Mountain. This flight through the galaxy can be a bit intimidating so if your daughter is hesitant about the dark or speed save this rocket ride until she is older.
Fantasyland has a few attractions where FastPass+ is the way to go. Enchanted Tales with Belle, Peter Pan's Flight, and the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh are all experiences your five year old would love that tend to have longer lines you will want to bypass.
Enjoy your visit to Mickey!
