Top 6 FastPass+ for Epcot

You’ll want to spend as little time as possible waiting in lines while at Walt Disney World, which is what FastPass+ is all about. With it, you can make up to three reservations per day in advance. If you’re staying on property you can make those reservations at the 60 day mark, if you’re not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel you can make them 30 days ahead of time. After you’ve used your three selections, you can make a fourth on the My Disney Experience app or at a FastPass+ kiosk. At Epcot, FastPass+ is in tiers. You’re allowed to make one selection from Tier One and two from Tier Two. This means that you’ll have a difficult decision to make, since the most popular attractions are all Tier One. Here are six of the top FastPass+ selections at Epcot.

6. Epcot Character Spot

Future World

If you love Mickey and other characters, you might want to consider using one of your Tier Two FastPass+ selections for Epcot Character Spot. Characters do change from time to time, but this is currently the place where you can meet Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy. Epcot Character Spot is also sometimes home to a character or two that you can’t find elsewhere. You’ll wait in several lines, but the wait is indoors so you won’t be sweaty in your pictures.

5. Spaceship Earth

Future World

If you’re hitting Epcot during one of the more crowded times of year, you might want to consider making a FastPass+ reservation to head inside the park’s icon. The lines used to be short most times of the year, but recently that’s changed. During peak times it isn’t unusual for the Wait Time to hit 45 minutes or more. Inside Spaceship Earth you’ll travel back in time through the history of communications, and you might get a glimpse of your future as well.

4. Mission: SPACE

Future World

Have you ever dreamed of traveling to Mars? With Mission: SPACE you’ll have the opportunity to do just that. You’ll be part of the crew that heads to the Red Planet. The ride is intense, so much so that there are two experiences available. Mission: SPACE is a great use for a Tier Two FastPass+, especially if you plan to join the more intense Orange Team.

3. Test Track

Future World

If you’ve ever wanted to design a concept car and then drive it, this ride could be for you! Test Track doesn’t have any hills or dips, but it’s still a thrill. In the first part of the ride you’ll test a car, and see how your design compares. The end of the ride offers the best kick, you’ll hit the open road at 65 MPH. Test Track is a Tier One selection. If you can’t get a reservation, hit it first thing in the morning, or consider using the Single Rider line.

2. Soarin’

Future World

In 2016 Soarin’ was updated, and the results are incredible! You will now soar around the world instead of just over California. The new film is crisp and clean, and the music expands upon the classic original score. The ride capacity for Soarin’ was expanded with the refurbishment, but the line can still grow long. It is a Tier One Attraction so grab a FastPass+ for this one as soon as you can.

1. Frozen Ever After

Norway, World Showcase

Frozen Ever After opened in June, 2016, and the ride was an instant hit. Fans of Frozen are still willing to wait hours to be able to ride a boat through the film. If this is a must-do, you’ll want to make your FastPass+ reservation the moment you are able. There is a very good chance that all selections will be gone by the end of the day. If you don’t snag a reservation, keep checking because someone might cancel. If you have a reservation but aren’t going to use it, please let it go (pun intended) by canceling it so that somebody else will have the opportunity to ride. This Tier One attraction is arguably the hardest to make FastPass+ reservation at Walt Disney World.

About PaulaK

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
