    Is there a way I can find out what is Tier 1 and what is Tier 2 at Epcot so I can plan my fastpasses

    Hi Christina,

    You've come to the right place! Epcot is my family's favorite park and we visit often, so we're quite familiar with the tiered FastPass+ system there.

    As a reminder, when you are making FastPass+ choices at Epcot in advance, you can choose one from the Tier 1 options and two from the remaining experiences. Once you have used all three, you can go to a kiosk or use the My Disney Experience Mobile App to book another FastPass+ from any category, based on availability.

    There just four Tier 1 options to choose from: Soarin', Frozen Ever AfterTest Track and IllumiNations.

    We seldom use a FastPass+ reservation for IllumiNations, in part because we find there are usually good viewing areas available without FastPass+ and in part because we want to have the opportunity to book an additional FastPass+ earlier in the day. Likewise, we use advance FastPass+ less frequently for Test Track and instead take advantage of the single rider line to speed our wait time or try to book it as our fourth FastPass+ of the day.

    So, for us, the choice usually comes down to a toss up between Soarin' and Frozen Ever After. On our next visit, we've split the vote. Two of us opted for Frozen, the other two for Soarin'. 

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christina. Please let us know if you have any other questions as you make your plans. Enjoy your day at Epcot!
