    What are the tiers for fp making at Epcot, Hollywood studios and animal kingdom? Wanna start planning my fp's

    Hi Sarah,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Clearly, you have been doing your research on those Fast Pass+ selections!

    Fast Pass+ has certainly enhanced our experience. With that said, there are tiers for certain rides at Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom theme parks. For Tier 1 attractions, you must choose one. The Tier 1 attractions for each park are: 

    • Epcot - Frozen Ever After, Soarin', Test Track and IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth
    • Disney's Hollywood Studios - Beauty and the Beast-Live on Stage, Fantasmic!, Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, The Great Movie Ride, Toy Story Mania!
    • Animal Kingdom - Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey
    Remember that you must use your first three Fast Pass+ selections (or the time window must expire) before you can make an additional selection. For this reason, we use our initial Fast Pass+ selections for earlier times during the day. I always create a chart before our booking window opens and, on that chart, I have noted our dining reservation locations and times. This helps me schedule our Fast Pass+ selections around existing dining reservations.

    Sarah, I suggest you go online at exactly 7:00 a.m. Eastern Standard time on the day your booking window opens - 60 days prior to your trip if staying at a Walt Disney World Resort or 30 days prior if not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort. You must have valid theme park tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account. Try to book Avatar Flight of Passage first if it is one of your must-do rides. It is amazing!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
