8 FastPass Selections to Make at Animal Kingdom

Festival of the Lion King

6. The Festival of the Lion King

We rarely recommend using a FastPass+ selection for a show, but Festival of the Lion King is not a regular show.  Guests will love escaping the Florida sun, sit down, and take in the air conditioning!  The show is very popular with shows throughout the morning and the afternoon, so you can always sneak in a second show if you want!

5. Kilimanjaro Safari

Our recommendation is grab a FastPass+ for this attraction earlier in the day because the animals that guests will see throughout the attraction are more active in the morning before temperatures get too high.  Seeing how up close guests can get with animals, this is a popular attraction with wait times frequently exceeding an hour.  Guests who have a great time on this attraction and are looking for more are encouraged to research the Wild Africa Trek!


This attraction can be found in DinoLand and invites guests to travel back in time to learn more about dinosaurs and see them up close.  The standby queue takes guests through various exhibits that teach guests more about the animals they are about to encounter. We are always too excited to start our journey, so we always grab a FastPass+ for this one!
