When you and your family are at Walt Disney World you are going to want to get as much done as possible. Standing in lines for everything isn’t fun, so you will want to take advantage of FastPass+. You can pick three FastPasses in advance per day, and after all three are used you can check to see if you can get a fourth, and so on until the park closes. The way FastPass+ works at Epcot is that there are two different tiers. You will pick one attraction from Tier One and two attractions from Tier Two. From time to time the attractions will change tiers so they will not be listed below so you’ll want to check that out in advance. Here are some of the attractions that you should consider choosing your FastPasses for at Epcot if they fit into your Tier and FastPass schedule.


6) Epcot Forever (Tier 1)

Epcot Forever lights up the World Showcase nightly with fireworks, lasers, and more. The musical score adds to the experience. It is a perfect way to end your busy day at Epcot. While some people may not think that you need a FastPass, guests do start finding the perfect spot early and it gets crowded around World Showcase Lagoon. To make sure you have a great view of the show, a FastPass might come in handy.

5) Spaceship Earth (Tier 2)

Earth is truly an amazing place. Travel back in time to see how the human race lived in the past, and how technology has changed over time. At the end you will become a part of the ride and see what your future might look like. Usually wait times are not too bad, except during the busiest times of the year. If you’re coming around a peak time you might be glad to have a FastPass for Spaceship Earth.

4) Mission: SPACE (Tier 2)

Who hasn’t at some point in their life wanted to travel into outer space? Walt Disney World can make that happen; well, sort of. Hold on tight as you become an astronaut and travel to space. You’ll have to pick an intensity level. Green Team is much calmer and less intense with an orbit of Earth, while Orange Team is a completely different story as you are launched to Mars. Those who are prone to motion sickness should probably skip being a part of the Orange Team. Orange Team spins, tilts and the G-forces might be too much for some guests. Wait times change a lot for this ride so it won’t hurt to have a FastPass, just in case.


3) Test Track (Tier 1)

Test Track is a blast! Being as popular as it is, lines can grow extremely long for this ride but it is still a must do for us! You will design your own car and then test it out while you go on an adventure. See the tests that the cars on the road go through and be a part of the experience. You’ll even go 65 miles per hour on an open track, for a ride that you’ll never forget. Keep in mind there is a single rider line for Test Track!

2) Frozen Ever After (Tier 1)

Do your best to snag a FastPass for Frozen Ever After 60 days in advance for Disney Resort guests or 30 days in advance for non-resort guests. This attraction is located in the Norway Pavilion and boasts extremely long wait times in the stand-by line. Frozen Ever After is a family-friendly boat ride that took the place of the former Maelstrom and follows a similar track, winding through multiple experiences up and down the river. It’s a fun attraction with beautiful surroundings, top notch animatronics, and of course… the forever popular Frozen characters and songs to sing along with!

1) Soarin’ (Tier 1)

Soarin’ is a must do ride. We recommend arriving to this attraction as soon as the park opens or use a FastPass if Frozen Ever After doesn’t appeal to you since they are on the same Tier. You will feel like you’re flying on a hang glider over beautiful scenery. You’ll be riding over natural and man made attractions from around the world. Lines grow very long, so if you can you will definitely want to try and get a FastPass for Soarin’.
