    Hello, Are there Fast Passes available for characters at Epcot--I know there have been in the past, but I cannot find them on the Fast Pass site now. Thanks for your information.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lynn!

    I see you’ll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort next month – hurray! You’ve reached that stage in your planning where it’s all coming together, including making your FastPass+ selections so you can really make the most of every magical minute. It’s so exciting, isn’t it?

    There’s a transformation taking place at Epcot, with all kinds of new experiences and attractions coming to the park over the next couple of years. The Disney Parks Blog has been doing a great job of keeping us updated on the latest news, and I recently visited The Epcot Experience, which features a model, sights, and sounds that transport you into the Epcot of the future. I had tears in my eyes!

    As part of the transformation, the Epcot Character Spot is temporarily closed. As of right now, none of the character experiences at Epcot have FastPass+ queues; all Guests queue up in one line to meet the characters. When I was there last week, we saw Guests meeting Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy near the International Gateway entrance, between the France and United Kingdom Pavilions in the World Showcase. Pluto was meeting Guests between the front gate and Spaceship Earth, and Daisy was located in the World Showcase Plaza. There are also several characters located throughout the World Showcase; I hope you find this list of character experiences in Epcot helpful. You can also use the My Disney Experience mobile app to find characters; navigate to the map and select “Characters” from the top drop-down menu. Tap each Mickey head icon to see which character is meeting where and to see times and other information. You can also check a Times Guide when you arrive at the park or ask a Cast Member.

    So, what FastPass+ selections can you make in Epcot? You’ll be able to choose from one of Frozen Ever After, Soarin’ Around the World, Test Track, and Epcot Forever for your Tier 1 FastPass+ selection. All other current FastPass+ attractions are considered Tier 2, and you’ll be able to choose two of these. 

    Lynn, have so much fun planning, counting down the days, and dreaming about all the fun you’re going to have at the Walt Disney World Resort. Please come back and see us if we can help with any more questions!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
