I would not wait more than 10 minutes for Test Track, it was so disappointing for us. I agree that Maelstrom is not worth waiting for as well.

What to skip and what to ride really depend on your personal preferences. I'm not a thrill junkie, so for me, Mission: Space is a skip. A lot of people would disagree. I like watching the live shows in the different countries, and some people find that boring.

If you're into thrill rides, be sure to hit Mission: Space and Test Track. Otherwise, pass.

Soarin is more of an immersive ride than a thrill ride. I like it a lot, but if I can't get a Fastpass, or the standby sign says more than 40 minutes, I pass - standby lines can be two hours or longer if it's busy.

I always go to Spaceship Earth. It's the last of the classic Epcot dark rides left, and it just doesn't feel like Epcot to me unless I go there.

Imagination. the Land greenhouse, and Living Seas are OK if they aren't too busy. I will go in if there's no line, but otherwise, I skip for another trip.

Of the live performances in WS, my favorites are Voices of Liberty and Off Kilter. I try not to miss those. But there are some quirky ones, like the mime in Italy or the French balancing act, that are fun to watch as well. I'm not really into the Beatles, so the copy act in the UK doesn't interest me - although the UK improv troupe can be a hoot if you get good audience participation.

The 360 movies make me motion sick, so I don't do those too often because of it. If you don't have motion sickness issues, they are OK (I prefer China to Canada). I like the French movie much better - I don't get sick there (I think because it's more like a regular theater).

I may get some flack for this suggestion, but I wouldn't plan on dining at any TS restaurant if you are short on time. You can get a wide variety of decent CS meals, especially in WS, and going to a TS restaurant can take a big chunk of your touring time. So unless it's a restaurant that you've been just drooling over, I'd skip it until you have a longer stay.
