    Will this FP plan work on a 9am Epcot opening? Arr 8:15, go straight to Soarin, 9:15 FP for Living w Land, 9:30 FP for Test Track, Mission Space Green, 10:30 FP for Spaceship Earth, then try for same day 8pm FP for Frozen (least important to us)? Thanks!

    Hi Paula!

    It sounds like you've spent a lot of time perfecting your Epcot Disney Day! FastPass+ has really taken over how families plan their Walt Disney World Resort vacation time, which is really helpful should parties want to split up to experience different attractions. Keep in mind that with FastPass+, you're only allowed to hold one reservation per hour and the system won't allow you to book anything within 60 minutes of whatever you already have scheduled. So if you book something for 9:15, the next time you'll be able to schedule something would not be until 10:15. Also note that you may not be able to secure a reservation for the more popular attractions once you're in the park as there are only a limited number of reservations per day.

    Of the 11 Epcot experiences that participate in the FastPass+ reservation system (10 attractions as well as the super awesome Character Spot Meet & Greet), Soarin' Around the World, Test Track and Frozen Ever After are the three that command multi-hour waits in their Standby lines. Epcot also operates on a 'tier' system where you're only allowed to hold one of those three reservations in advance. So definitely reserve whichever one is most important to you.

    Pro Tip: Test Track does have a Single Rider line where as the others don't, so should you want to head straight to Soarin' Around The World at opening and reserve Frozen Ever After, you could easily make it through the standby line of Test Track in 30 to 45 minutes. This way your group would be able to experience all three of those attractions. The only con would be that your party would be split up into different vehicles on Test Track.

    I hope this helped, Paula, and We'll See You Real Soon!
