    What is the best way to get a FastPass for the Frozen ride at Epcot? We are not staying at a Disney resort but know about the 30 day window.

    Hi, Marcia!

    Frozen Ever After, located in the Norway Pavilion in Epcot is for sure the hot ticket. Everyone just can't wait to visit Arendelle to see Anna, Elsa, and the gang and simply LET IT GO! As soon as you hit your 30 day FastPass+ booking window, you can book your selections. If there is still a time slot open for Frozen Ever After, grab it!

    But are you ready for my little secret? I've been on this attraction several times, and NEVER have I had a FastPass. My family and I make sure to get to Epcot about 30 minutes prior to the official opening time. As soon as we are allowed in, we head straight to Norway. Even during the busiest of times (July 4th weekend!) we waited less than 30 minutes.

    Do you want my next little secret? We prefer the Stand-by line for this attraction! We love the queue. It is done so well with such great detail, and we get such a kick out of walking through Wandering Oaken's Trading Post.

    OK, my final secret, just between us - I'll give you my Epcot plan. After Frozen Ever After, we head to Soarin' Around the World, make a stop at Sunshine Seasons for  a quick breakfast, then zoom over to Test Track and ride using the Single Rider line (usually less than a 20-30 minute wait). So before lunch, we get in three "Tier One" attractions without a single FastPass. We like to park hop, so we have our FastPass+ selections chosen for a second park that evening.

    So now you know all my tricks, when to book your FastPasses, and how to get around Epcot even if you don't book FastPasses! I hope this has been helpful for you!
