Disney is currently trying out a “tiered” Fastpass+ system at Epcot. The idea behind it is simple, in that you’re limited as to how many major attractions you can choose a Fastpass for. It works like this:
Choose one Fastpass from the following:
- Character Spot
- Test Track
And then two Fastpasses from the rest:
- Captain EO
- Journey into Imagination
- Living with the Land
- Mission: SPACE
- Seas with Nemo and Friends
- Spaceship Earth
- Turtle Talk with Crush

It’s rumored (key word) that it will be implemented resort-wide during Christmas week, at the very least. The good news is that if you already have Fastpasses chosen, you won’t be effected by this new change, at least during this initial period of testing.
