Epcot FastPass Recommendations

In EPCOT, FastPass+ reservations can dramatically increase your ability to see more in less time through proper planning.

*Please note that attractions are added and subtracted from the FastPass+ roster throughout the year depending on crowds, refurbishments and other events that are out of our control.**

Let’s Rank the EPCOT FastPass+ Attractions


WHAT IS FASTPASS+?

This is Walt Disney World’s reservation system, which allows for you to reserve your spot in line up to 60 days in advance of your vacation to Florida.

The program allows you to make 3 (three) FastPass+ reservations prior to your time in the park and add more (depending on the availability) once you’ve used the previous reservations.

FUN FACTS

Frozen Ever After

  • Frozen Ever After’s queue line has been known to hit 120-180 minutes, so either get there at World Showcase opening hours or do the FastPass+
  • Test Track has a single rider line! If you don’t have an issue with riding this attraction in separate ride vehicles, this can save you a decent amount of time. That being said, you aren’t able to design your own car in the queue line.

As with most FastPass recommendations, there really isn’t a wrong choice. That being said, at Epcot, there are a few bad choices.

Remember to choose your times as early in the day as possible, as the park is fairly quiet and will allow you to get a bunch of your bucket list done early!
