    Why cant I book a fast pass for Soarin and Test Track? I could only do one or the other?

    Hi Christine!

    Yes....this is one of the drawbacks (in my opinion) of the new FastPass+ system.  It's often referred to as "tiers".  The math is way above my head, but I think they have "tiered" them so that the most popular rides don't have too many FastPass+ reservations during the day.  The following is a great article about the FastPass+ system.  It's not an official Disney website, so the information may become outdated, but I think it's worth the read to educate yourself on how it works. You can copy and paste this address:

    What you can do, is schedule your FastPass+ reservations at Epcot for early in the morning.  Then, after you use those, you can add more from a kiosk at the park.  (they are working on getting this available on the My Disney Experience app, but right now, you still use kiosks)  There is no guarantee that the other ride(s) you want will be available, but it could be worth a try.  Or, you can always stand in line the old-fashioned way!

    The tier situation is one that I hope Walt Disney World changes, but for now, that's how it works!

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
