So what does it mean for an attraction at Epcot to change Fastpass tiers? Epcot has a tiered FastPass system to ensure visitors don’t load up their virtual reservations just on the park’s most popular rides. While visitors to Epcot are welcome to enjoy all park rides via standby, they are limited to one Tier 1 FastPass attraction selection. Meanwhile, you can select 2 FastPasses from the second tier of attractions, of which Character Spot had been a member. This means you essentially have to choose between meeting Mickey, Minnie and Goofy…or riding Frozen, Soarin, or Test Track.

Disney likely made this move because Character Spot FastPasses were very tough to come by while it was in Tier 2 due to the extra allowed selection and the attractions relative low capacity.

Here is a listing of what is included in each of the Epcot FastPass tiers currently:

Over time, it will be interesting to see how much this change impacts  Epcot FastPass availability for the remaining tier 2 rides….

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us. My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments: 1) The birth of my son (who is now 7 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?) I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
