Default Which FP+ is easier to get?

I'm specifically talking about a 4th FP+, at MK, day of. So look into your crystal ball, please, and tell me, do I have a better chance getting Pirates of the Caribbean? Or Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin?

Buzz will have the most but you'll likely have an option of PoC too. Buzz first though.

From what I understand Pirates has a much higher capacity than Buzz so there should be more passes distributed for Pirates. Unless many many more people book it in advance I think it would be more available. TP and Easywdw both say that Pirates is an easy 4th pass, but that Buzz is usually available too. So, I'd say both!

I've successfully been able to get both as 4th & 5th FPs. Pro tip: split your party up when searching for extra FPs, you'll likely get whatever you want...maybe not at exact same time, but within the same window.

Agreed. Unless itís a high crowd time Iíve always found Buzz, many times PotC.

Actually, I've been thinking about this since yesterday, and I kept trying to figure which one I preferred. So I decided to go with Pirates as one of my first 3, then hope for Buzz as my fourth, because Pirates is my first choice. I'm solo, and the good news about that is that I only have to look for a FP+ for one. The bad news is that I'm ECV-bound, and I'm not sure what's going to happen when I get to Pirates. I know that I'm supposed to transfer to a wheelchair, but I have no one to push me. Last time I asked (the ride was closed, so I was just curious), the CMs were very nice and said "Oh, no problem-we'd be happy to get you to the ride." And I know that this is what happened at the Winnie the Pooh ride. But I don't want to count on it, so we'll see. Thanks all!

I usually try to ride pirates at the Christmas party for that same reason .

You should have no problem get either of these for your fourth in fact there are good odds both of those could be a Fifth or be done twice.

Do you split up so each person books their own Fast Pass or groups of two or three? Thanks!
