    If I were you, I would be on every ride you have time for! Good luck :-)

We were told "no only people with a Fastpass could go through the Fastpass line." We were told the same thing at Mission Space. At Hollywood studios we were told the same thing at Tower of Terror... Not sure why/when the policy changed.
    The change is most likely a direct result of the ADA and compliance with "mainstream access."

    It's the only way I'll ever go to Walt Disney World. We stayed in the Boardwalk Villas which were great and centrally located, especially to Epcot's international gateway for dinner :-) We were escorted out one night as the last guests; we apparently overstayed our welcome What a fun night that was!

    Just to be clear, a fastpass requires you to go to the ride before you want to ride it and get a ticket. You can only get one fastpass at a time. If we got a fastpass to Soarin we would have to return in a few hours to ride the ride (instead of waiting 75 minutes). It didn't make sense to get a fastpass and then come back to the ride in a few hours - we were on the other side of the park by then and I don't have the energy to continually cross the park.
