EPCOT Extreme Touring Plan

Walt Disney World, Epcot

Attractions Characters Entertainment Hours
Menus Touring Plans    
ktp iconThis plan isn’t for those who want to enjoy a casual stroll in the park.  If you are fruitful with your Fastpass+ usage, it would be easy to take in every headliner and meet all of the characters.

I recommend that you arrive 45 minutes before this park opening.  Look for a turnstile that doesn’t have a line or a very short line.  Most people tend to line up behind others.

This plan was designed to be able to experience all the best rides, see the fireworks and meet every character in one day from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM without too much backtracking or rushing around.

Shouldn’t I go to Soarin first?

No, because you’ll need to travel all the way to Test Track, then come all the way back across the park to the France Pavilion to meet Belle.  Follow this plan and it will work nicely.

Why shouldn’t I ride Spaceship Earth first?  

I realize it’s right in front of you when you enter and you’re tempted to walk right on, but it will take 20-30 minutes of your time and both headliners will have huge waits, meaning you’ll either have to skip one or ride the other one instead of watching Illuminations.

12:45 PM
  Grab a quick service lunch. Japan and America have some decent Quick Service locations

  • Arrive by 1:15 pm for the shortest wait. If your family hasn’t finished lunch, you could have one member wait in line or move her meet down the list. She can also be met in the Magic Kingdom in the same dress.
1:30 PM

  • This is the only meet and greet for Mulan and her next meet isn’t until 3:50 pm, so arrive a few minutes early.
2:00 PM
Mexico Donald.

  • We’re going to meet Donald Duck before Anna and Elsa to insure that we don’t come here during his one hour break. It’s only a few steps from Norway.
12:00 PM – 03:15 PM & 4:10-7:15 PM
Mexico Gran Fiesta Tour.

  • You’re here already and you’d like to get off your feet. Why not take an air-conditioned boat ride with little or no wait?
 
Norway Anna & Elsa.

  • I recommend meeting the ladies this late in the day because the lines are shorter in the afternoon and it allows you to experience the attractions first. You may still wait one hour or more.
 
Norway Maelstrom. If the wait times exceed 20 minutes, why bother? It’s an okay boat ride, but nothing spectacular. Certainly not worth ever using a Tier 1 FP+ on.  
World Showcase Plaza Duffy the Disney Bear Arrive before 6:30 PM
Space Pavilion Mission: Space.

  • You should have little to no wait, but go ahead and reserve the FP+ anyway. Orange is the intense side and Green is the wimpy side.
Use FP+
Innoventions East Sum of All Thrills.

  • If this Kuka arm robotic ride is important to you, you should make sure to be in line by 7:00 PM. Lines are usually low in the late afternoon.
Innoventions closes 7:00 PM

Entrance Area Spaceship Earth.

  • Avoid the desire to ride this early. It will save you long waits at other attractions. There will be little or no wait later in the day.
