Fastpass+ Tier Changes Coming to Epcot and Hollywood Studios


According to there will be some re-arranging of the tiers for Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The changes are effective now for Fastpass+ selection that are made from June 16 on.

At Hollywood Studios ‘The Great Movie Ride’ is moving to group 1.

At Epcot ‘Living with the Land’ is moveing to group 1. ‘Character Spot’ and ‘Maelstrom’ are moving to group 2.

If you already have Fastpasses picked from the old groups, they are ok and will stay active unless you cancel them.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom do not make use of experience groups.

    Living with the Land and Great Movie Ride in group 1?? Really??!? Weird!
    I just wish I could choose Tower of Terror twice for my two group 2 picks. :-/ Not that there is ever a really long wait in off-season.
    Or what would be really cool is to trade in two group 2s for one group 1. :-)
