    What is the best time of day for Soarin, Test Track & frozen Ever After (tier 1 attractions at Epcot) if you do not have a fast pass? We want to enjoy all three but can only fast pass one.

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, James!

    Maximizing the magic on a visit to Walt Disney World is a great idea--Disney's FastPass+ service can surely help with that!

    Consider what your day at EPCOT will look like and plan around that. Breakfast at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall? That means you'll be in World Showcase, and Frozen Ever After is right next door. Consider getting a FastPass+ for about an hour before or an hour after your regal meal. Planning a lunch at the fabulous Quick Service Sunshine Seasons, in EPCOT's Land Pavilion? Soarin' Around the World is just steps away. Use that one FastPass+ Tier 1 opportunity at a time when you have additional plans nearby. That will save you steps--and time--enabling you to enjoy more of the additional attractions throughout the rest of your day. 

    Test Track is a fantastically fast attraction, and wait times vary wildly each day. I've noticed that wait times tend to be shorter here if you arrive at Park Open, then rise throughout the day. As other Guests linger in World Showcase later in the evening, wait times may decrease here just a bit. Keep in mind that Test Track offers a single rider line, too, so if you don't mind your party getting split up upon entry to the vehicle, that may be a time-saving option as well.

    If you can't get onto an attraction using a FastPass+ reservation or by arriving early in the morning (as close to Park Open as you can get) keep an eye on current Wait Times using the super-handy My Disney Experience mobile app. I've used that app to track trends well in advance of arrival, helping us plan accordingly. You'll love it!

    As you plan your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, James, be sure to send us more questions. We love to help!
