How to Set Up Fast Passes

Fast Pass Guide

So, you've got a Disney Vacation on the calendar? Yay! You're going to have a Magical time! That is, as long as you're prepared! Rather than sit in the long lines in the hot sun all day long, avoid the lines and make the most out of your Disney experience with Fast Passes+! In today's blog, we'll cover exactly how to get the best out of your Fast Passes+ and make your vacation the most Magical one you've ever taken!

Starting with Fast Passes+ is easy to do - all you need to do is use the My Disney Experience App or Disney's website to plan the rides you'll be taking throughout the day! You are able to sign up for a Fast Pass+ at up to three rides at a time, so after you've redeemed one Fast Pass+, you can just get signed up for another one! Making sure you stay on top of your Fast Passes+ can help you to maximize the amount of time you actually spend on the rides, and you can use the time in-between passes to explore the Park, eat delicious snacks, and take pictures with your favorite Characters! One really important thing about Fast Passes+ is the Tier system. While Disney doesn't display this information readily available on their website, once you start signing up for Fast Passes+ you'll see that certain rides are only eligible for signup one-at-a-time, and others have unlimited availability. Before we go any further, we'll go over the Tier system for each of the 4 Parks at Disney World, so you have that information at your disposal before you get started.

Epcot has five Tier 1 attractions that you can sign up for a Fast Pass+ for. As with all of the other Parks, you are allowed to sign up for one Tier 1 attraction at a time, so make sure to make your selections and be prepared to sign up for another Tier 1 Fast Pass+ as soon as you've redeemed the first!

If you'd like to see a written list, you can read all of the Tiers for each of the Parks below. 

Here is a list of the Tier 1 attractions at Epcot:
  1. Frozen Ever After
  2. Test Track
  3. Soarin'
  4. Illuminations: Reflection of Earth
  5. Epcot Character Greeting

While you're reserving a Pass for the Tier 1 attractions, you can reserve two of the Tier 2 attractions at a time (or three if you don't reserve a Tier 1 attraction), as is the case with the other Parks as well. Here's a list of the Tier 2 attractions at Epcot:

There ya have it! Make sure you keep these lists handy for your upcoming Disney Vacation, and you'll be sure to have an absolutely fantastic time! One more thing to remember: if you can't get signed up for a Fast Pass+ for an attraction that you absolutely need to go on, that's fine, too! Sign up for Passes+ for the attractions you know you'll be able to get on, and hop in line for the must-go ride. By the time you're out of the line and off the ride, you'll be able to pick up right where you left-off with the rest of the Park!

Until next week, we wish you the best, and Stay Magical!
