It has never been a secret that Soarin' Over California in Walt Disney World's Epcot has one of the longest lines at Walt Disney World. I have always told people how important it is to get a Fast Pass for this ride. But I just wanted to share that it is more important than ever now that Test Track is closed for refurbishment.
Soarin' is a great, ride it is one of my favorites and I don't think it should be missed, especially if you don't plan on returning to Walt Disney World anytime soon. Waits for Soarin' are almost always 120 minutes so I think it is extremely important to get Fast Pass to avoid the line. The problem is that the Fast Passes often run out very quickly but because Test Track is closed there is not another "major attraction" to share the crowds with Soarin; so the Fast Passes will run out even faster than normal. The Fast Passes ran out on our trip by 9:30, it was so disappointing because there is no way we were waiting the 120 minutes for Stand By with our two little ones. I think that all the rides in Epcot's lines are longer because of Test Track being closed, we actually waited 30 minutes for The Seas with Nemo and Friends when I have NEVER waited for that ride!
To sum it up, I am saying get your Soarin' first thing in the morning or the Fast Passses will quickly run out. Yes, this seems to be a no-brainer for some people but I can't stress to you to get them ASAP now that Test Track is closed.
If you don't get a Fast Pass and don't have small children, then maybe the Stand By line is something to consider!
