Best FastPasses for Families with Babies and Toddlers at Epcot
We are a few months away from embarking on our third Disney World vacation with a baby or a toddler in tow. Heading down to Disney with such a small person certainly requires different planning and prepping. But one thing that stays the same is booking FastPasses. You need to do this regardless of the age of the kids going with you. Your selection certainly changes though. Today’s post is going to give you a handful of suggestions for your FastPass selections while heading to Epcot with a toddler or baby in tow. Whenever we have smaller vacationers with us we pick two FastPasses for all of us and a third that’s for us, or the taller members of our party. You can choose up to 3 FastPasses for each park day of your vacation. Here are the attractions I suggest choosing from when picking your FastPasses for your Disney World vacation with a little 32 inches and smaller.
Spaceship Earth is the first attraction you’ll see upon arriving at Epcot, if you’re coming through the main entrance. Spaceship Earth takes guests through the development of the world we know today. From the creation of the printing press to the first computer, all voiced by Judy Dench. It’s a slow moving ride that climbs into the iconic Epcot ball. The ride moves slowly, so riders getting onto the ride takes longer than some other attractions. The ride often stops for guests needing assistance getting on and off the ride. On our last vacation with kids we waited approximately 45 minutes for this ride. Much too long in my opinion. In hind sight I would have opted for a FastPass for Spaceship Earth over Mission Space because there was no line for that attraction.
Frozen Ever After
This is a MUST! Especially with the second film coming out in the Fall, Frozen Ever After is going to be as popular as ever. Frozen Ever After is an attraction found in the Norway Pavilion, in Epcot’s World Showcase. It’s one of two rides found in this area of the park. It’s a flume ride that takes guests through the different scenes of the film Frozen. You’ll see Olaf, Anna, Kristoff and Sven. And get your kleenex ready for when your boat travels through Elsa’s ice castle as she performs Let It Go. All the characters are animatronics. The line at this attraction is somewhat interactive. There’s lots to look if you end up making your way through the regular line but the line will be extremely long with so many guests waiting to ride the attraction. So grab a FastPass for this one.
The Seas with Nemo & Friends
This is a simple ride, perfect for guests with younger visitors. Visitors will climb into a shell and be taken through the different parts of the Finding Nemo film, looking for Nemo along the way. You’ll see appearances from many of the characters throughout the ride. The line is very dark, as guests are heading under the sea. The line moves quickly because the attraction is constantly moving. You’ll continuously weave through the ropes as you make your way to the start of the attraction. The biggest reason you may want to grab a FastPass for this attraction is because there is nothing to do in this line, and not much to look at, making the wait feel excruciating for young ones.
