In Part 1 of this 4 part series Jillian discusses the most effective use of FastPass+ in Epcot. Stay tuned for other entries in this series, being published throughout the week!
Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the FastPass+ options? I have been there too but I have a handy guide for you on some of the best uses for FastPass+ for Epcot. In this article I will focus on how to choose when you have children in your party those under the 40 inch height mark and those over but still under the age of 13.
Group A (Choose 1)
• IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth
• Living with the Land
• Test Track
Group B (Choose 2)
• Captain EO
• Epcot Character Spot
• Journey Into Imagination With Figment
• Maelstrom at Norway
• Mission: SPACE Green
• Mission: SPACE Orange
• Spaceship Earth
• The Seas with Nemo & Friends
• Turtle Talk with Crush
For Group A with children under 40 inches the best choices are Living with the Land or Illuminations if your kids can last until 9pm. From Group B, Turtle Talk with Crush and The Seas with Nemo and Friends are a good choice especially if you are going during the busy season.
Children over 40 inches will not want to miss Soarin’ or Test Track. The best advice I have is to FastPass one and then ride the other right away. I would get the FastPass for Test Track in the late morning and then ride Soarin’ first thing. In Group B my suggestion is Mission: Space Green and The Seas with Nemo and Friends. Thrill seekers will enjoy Test Track and Mission: Space Orange.
Many of the attractions in Group B will not have long lines so a FastPass isn’t necessary but if it is a busy time of the year it doesn’t hurt to have one.
Stay tuned for the next installment on FastPass for Hollywood Studios.
Thanks for the insight!
I hope it can help you out Jennifer!
I haven’t used FastPass+ yet, but had a question. Can you pick different options for each person, or do the fast passes in a group have to be the same? For example, if I went with my sister and she loves a ride, but I hate it, could she fast pass it and me pick a different one to ride at the same time?
You can absolutely make a different FastPass for each person in your party. It might take a bit of work to get them all at the same time but you could get it within a close window.
Thank you for the explanation! I have not used FastPass yet. We are going to WDW in November for the first time. Very excited and very overwhelming at the same time! 🙂
I hope this helps you out! I can totally relate! It is a lot to take in, but I bet you will have a wonderful time!
