When To Use A FastPass At Animal Kingdom

You may note that we do not recommend using your selections for a few of the more popular rides. This is because we feel that there is time to be saved by using a pass or that your pass would be better utilized elsewhere (particularly at one of the parks with the tier system). We tend to think a pass is better spent on a ride that consistently has lines of 30 minutes or longer.
