    Hi Anne ~

    I love Disney FastPass+ service (FP+)! It can be a little tricky making your FP+ selections. It sounds like you have already planned the days you are going to visit each park. I make a list of my "must-do" attractions. From there I check to see which ones offer FP+. Then I think about the historical crowd levels and choose my top 3 for each day to see what is available.

    Because they break up FP+ selections in Epcot into 2 tiers, you may want to make FP+ selections for 2 days. You can choose 1 attraction from Tier 1 and 2 attractions from Tier 2 when you select your initial 3 FP+. Here is how it breaks down (this is always subject to change):

    Tier 1
    IllumiNations
    Living with the Land
    Soarin'
    Test Track

    Tier 2
    Captain EO
    Epcot Character Spot
    Journey Into Imagination with Figment
    Maelstrom (closing soon)
    Mission: SPACE
    Spaceship Earth
    The Seas with Nemo and Friends
    Turtle Talk with Crush

    If Soarin' and Test Track are must-dos, you may want to make FP+ selections for 2 days at Epcot. There is a single rider line for Test Track if this will work for your family. You may also want to sleep in a bit on some mornings so later FP+ times work great - no pressure to jump out of bed and make rope drop.

    Keep in mind that after you use your 3 original FP+ selections, additional FP+ selections can be made at a FP+ kiosk within the same park as the original 3 FP+ selections or you can also go to a different park from your previous selections to obtain another FP+ (if available). You will need the Park Hopper Option on your tickets if you plan to park hop.

    To take the most advantage FP+, I select my original 3 in the morning so I have a greater amount of time for additional FP+ selections when I hop to a different park.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison V.
