6 Rides Or Attractions You Should Really FastPass At Epcot In Walt Disney World

Plenty of guests who visit Walt Disney World love to spend a lot of time in Epcot enjoying all that the park has to offer. Epcot is broken down into two distinct halves which come together to form a cohesive whole. The front of the park is occupied by Future World which celebrates the unity of technology and nature and the rear of the park features World Showcase which highlights eleven different countries of the world to celebrate culture and unity. Guests love spending time in Epcot enjoying attractions, dining, shopping, and entertainment and love to return time and time again. With so many things to experience on a day in Epcot, guests are smart to utilize the FastPass system in order to enjoy popular experiences while not losing a lot of time standing in line. FastPasses allow guests to book a specific time to return to an experience and enjoy it with little to no wait time saving them lots of time and allowing them to see more throughout their day in the park. Here are six rides or attractions that guests should really FastPass on their next visit to Epcot.

6. Illuminations: Reflections of Earth

Each night in Epcot, World Showcase Lagoon comes to life with a presentation of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. The show symbolically gathers guests around the fire to tell the story of how all people are united as one through laser lights, beautiful music, dancing water, pyrotechnics, fireworks, and a massive globe. While there are plenty of great viewing spots all around World Showcase Lagoon, those looking to score the ultimate spot can book a FastPass for Illuminations: Reflections of Earth and enjoy the show from a reserved FastPass viewing area. A great view of Illuminations: Reflections of Earth is the perfect end to any day in Epcot!

5. Spaceship Earth

Located just inside the entrance to Epcot is perhaps the most recognizable attraction in the park. Spaceship Earth is housed inside a massive geodesic dome which is covered in silver triangles giving it a futuristic look. The attraction brings guests from the beginning of time to modern day to celebrate the history of communication through scenes like the burning of Rome, the Renaissance, and the invention of the printing press. While Spaceship Earth is a fast boarding attraction with a line that tends to usually move rather quickly, it can often backup as the majority of guests who enter the park immediately get on line for the experience. Guests who are looking to avoid the bottlenose and proceed directly to boarding Spaceship Earth are smart to book a FastPass for the attraction.

4. Living with the Land

Located across from Soarin’ on the lower level of The Land Pavilion is an attraction which teaches guests about the sustainability and importance of the land. Living with the Land brings guests on a serene boat ride through several different environments which demonstrate how the land can thrive in all sorts of settings. Guess can then enjoy a tour of beautiful greenhouses which grow all sorts of produce, vegetation, and plants that are used throughout Walt Disney World. While Living with the Land isn’t the most popular of attractions in Epcot, it can still feature wait times on busy days making it a great choice for a FastPass in order to save some time.

3. Frozen Ever After 

This is a tier one attraction and it can be a hard one to get! Don’t expect to get a same day FastPass for this popular ride that features Frozen characters like Anna, Elsa and Olaf. You have to plan ahead for Frozen Ever After unless you want to wait an average of 90 minutes to get a chance to experience this chilly and joyful replacement for Maelstrom. Between waiting to meet the sisters at The Royal Sommerhus and the standby line, you could be in Norway a good portion of your day with a FastPass for Frozen Ever After.

Guests especially love the finale of Test Track Presented by Chevrolet as the attraction vehicles whip around an outdoor portion of track at top speeds of sixty five miles per hour. Since Test Track Presented by Chevrolet is so popular, it tends to have long wait times on busy days in the park making it an ideal candidate to use a FastPass for while in Epcot.

1. Soarin’

Another extremely popular attraction in Epcot can be found on the lower level of The Land Pavilion in Future World West. Soarin’ invites guests to take to the skies for an unforgettable experience over the beautiful sights of the world.
