Best Disney Fastpass Strategies for EPCOT

Disney World FastPass Tips

Skip the line, Disney Fastpass Strategies for EPCOT

Fastpasses are key to your Disney World vacation and Disney is constantly chasing how Fastpasses work and which rides and attractions have fastpasses.  Epcot has some new rides and also a tiered fastpass setup which makes this Disney park different than the Magic Kingdom.  The Epcot fastpass system has two tiers.  Tier one fastpasses are your E Ticket rides that everyone wants and you only get to pick one tier 1 fastpass at EPCOT.  Tier 2 fastpasses are you lessor rides and attractions at Epcot and you get to pick two fastpass tier 2 level fastpasses.

There are several different ways to plan your Disney Epcot fastpasses.  On this weeks Mouse Chat podcast we cover all the different ways to best use your Epcot fastpasses.
We have tested these fastpass strategies over this Summer.  Chris got to Epcot at rope drop so she could ride Frozen without a fastpass and got on the ride first thing with no wait.  This allowed Chris to use her tier 1 Epcot fastpass for something else.

Lauren also went to Epcot and tried a few fast pass strategies.  We also recommend some options for fastpasses for families with kids going to Epcot.  Also we cover fastpasses in multiple Disney World parks and how to add additional fastpasses to your My Disney Experience when you are in the park.

  1. I love your show. It is so wonderful hearing the different perspectives. You are my fav Disney podcast. And I have to confess, I am a bit for a Disney podcast addict these days. *grin*

    I am planning a trip in early Nov. & can’t wait. If I hadn’t booked the trip before I started listening to the show, I definitely would have loved to have Pixie Vacations book it. Hopefully next time!

    Is there any chance you will be doing an Epcot Food & Wine show this year? I have listened to the live one from last year & should listen to it again.

    My family is going on the next to last day. Hoping it won’t be too insane…

    I would love to hear your top pics & suggestions.

  2. Ellen’s Energy Adventure is on of my guilty pleasures! I think its awesome and adorable and horribly outdated, but it’s a ride I have to do every time I’m in EPCOT.

    Love you guys so much and can’t wait to book our next trip with you!
