You get up extra early eat offsite go do a couple rides at expect ang get to magic kingdom by 12 by monorail. I have done it before and it is possible!

Make sure you go to Disneyworld.com and click on "My Disney Experience" in the upper right corner, to register and set up your Fastpass+ ride reservation times.

You can select three reservation times per day per park per person in your group. If you want to see Soarin', make that your top priority for FP+ reservations. (For people who've been to California Adventure before and seen that show there, pick Test Track instead.)

For your other FP+ reservations, I'd suggest Mission: Space and either Living with the Land or Spaceship Earth. Be sure to make dining reservations via the "Things to Do" tab on disneyworld.com before you go, too.

With reservations in hand, then you can work around those to get the most from your day. Go see Test Track early in the day if you didn't get a FP+ reservation for it. Or you can split your group and go through the single rider line to minimize your wait, though that means you won't be ride in the same vehicles.

The Future World attractions open at 9am, while World Showcase doesn't open until 11. Try to avoid the park on days when Epcot has the morning Extra Magic Hours, and opens early to on-site guests. You can find out which day that happens by looking up the "More Park Hours" under the Parks & Tickets tab on disneyworld.com.

Don't miss the France movie or American Adventure in World Showcase. You can find out more about Epcot and see our reader ratings on http://www.themeparkinsider.com/reviews/epcot/.

Have a great trip!
