    Going to park hop on a Friday, first week of Feb. Morning will be AK, evening will be Epcot. Which should I book fast passes for?

    Hi Nicki,

    My family loves the Park Hopper Option, and we have been faced with this very dilemma! 

    I would suggest using your FastPass+ selections for your evening in Epcot. My family enjoys visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park in the morning; we have found the crowds and lines to be manageable if you get there when the Park opens. That said, Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain and Kilimanjaro Safaris are two attractions you will want to visit quickly upon your arrival at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. 

    Epcot has a tiered FastPass+ system where you choose one attraction in Tier 1 and two attractions in Tier 2. Here's the current breakdown: 

    Tier 1: 
    IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth
    Living with the Land
    Test Track

    Tier 2: 
    Journey Into Imagination With Figment
    Meet Disney Pals at the Epcot Character Spot
    Mission: SPACE
    Spaceship Earth
    The Seas with Nemo & Friends
    Turtle Talk With Crush

    Because Soarin' will be closed for enhancements during your visit, I suggest choosing Test Track for your Tier 1 FastPass+ selection. You can then choose among the several Tier 2 options that suit you and your group best.  

    Happy hopping!
