    I have one day to visit any attractions & I’m planning on Epcot. I will be alone. Is there a fast pass option I can purchase w/ticket to minimize my time in line?

    Hi Shanaya, welcome to planDisney!

    It would be my pleasure to help you design your best day ever at EPCOT. Your first step is to purchase a Standard Theme Park Ticket for the day you plan to visit. 1 Day, 1 Park Per Day Tickets currently include a theme park reservation for the park of your choosing as long as there is availability. Tickets purchased on are automagically linked to your My Disney Experience account so the last thing you'll need to enter the park is a method of entry: MagicBand, admission card, or Disney MagicMobile pass.

    Purchasing Disney Genie+ service and/or an Individual Lightning Lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will let you spend less time waiting and more time experiencing attractions on your EPCOT day. Disney Genie+ service gives you access to Lightning Lane entrances at 12 attractions and entertainment experiences in EPCOT. You can purchase Disney Genie+ service via the Tip Board of the My Disney Experience mobile app any time after midnight on your park day. Start by clicking the three small lines at the bottom right of the app's home page, "Tip Board," then "Purchase for Today" in the Disney Genie+ banner. I recommend purchasing by 6:45 a.m. so you can book your first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction at 7:00 a.m.

    To book a Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction, scroll to a desired attraction on your Tip Board and click the "LL Disney Genie+" button. You'll be given the next available arrival time to experience the attraction, which is a 60-minute window. You can book your next Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction as soon as you've tapped in at your first, or at the time listed on your Tip Board banner. To maximize your Genie+ purchase, continue booking Genie+ attractions throughout the day as soon as you are able. I recommend booking either Frozen Ever After or Remy's Ratatouille Adventure as your first Genie+ Lighting Lane attraction as those are the more popular attractions that tend to run out of arrival windows first. 

    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is a groundbreaking attraction for thrill seekers. Currently, this attraction can only be experienced via a virtual queue and/or as an Individual Lightning Lane purchase. All Guests can try to join the virtual queue at 7:00 a.m. in the My Disney Experience mobile app (three small lines --> Virtual Queues). Pre-select your party by 6:55 a.m. and click "Refresh" at 7:00 a.m. to join. Spots for the virtual queue fill up in seconds, so I would attempt to join the virtual queue before booking your first Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction. If you are unable to join the virtual queue at 7:00 a.m., you'll have another opportunity at 1:00 p.m. If you decide to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind (Tip Board --> scroll to attraction --> select "LL Individual Lightning Lane" button), you get to select your return time. It's possible to experience this unforgettable attraction twice in one day by joining the virtual queue and purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane. Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can purchase an Individual Lightning Lane at 7:00 a.m.; all others may purchase at park opening.

    In addition to experiencing attractions, be sure and take in the sights, smells, and eats of the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival. I also recommend catching a stirring Voices of Liberty performance and ending the day with EPCOT Forever.

    EPCOT days are some of my favorite Disney days, Shanaya. I hope yours is full of fun, laughter, and magic!

    Plan magic; planDisney.
