    How do I access fast pass at Animal Kingdom or any other park.

    Hi Chandler,

    Welcome to planDisney! I hope you're in full-on countdown mode because your Walt Disney World Resort vacation will be here before you know it! You'll have a roaring great time at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and with the entire Resort in the holiday spirit and celebration mode for the 50th anniversary, you'll find pixie-dusted magic everywhere you look!

    While the FastPass+ service has been permanently discontinued, I'm happy to share that you'll still be able to bypass the standby lines if you'd like. You'll find most Lightning Lanes available through the Disney Genie+ service, while Individual Lightning Lane selections will allow you access to some of the most popular attractions. While subject to change, Disney Genie+ currently costs $15 per person per day, and the Individual Lightning Lane selection costs vary based on the date and the attraction. Disney Genie+ may be added to your ticket ahead of time if you already know you would like to take advantage of this helpful service each day of your visit. Simply find your ticket in your My Disney Experience account online or by clicking the three horizontal lines in the My Disney Experience app and selecting "Tickets and Passes." You'll then want to click "Change Ticket" where you'll see the option to add Disney Genie+. If you'd prefer to add it for select days only, it will become available to purchase within the app each day after midnight, and regardless of when you buy it, you'll be able to make your first selection each day beginning at 7:00 AM. You'll be able to use Disney Genie+ one attraction at a time throughout the entire day and even at multiple parks if you're planning to park hop. If you're interested in any Individual Lightning Lane selections, you'll be able to purchase those at 7:00 AM if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel or whenever the park opens if you're staying elsewhere. Of course, please don't forget that the complimentary Disney Genie service can help you build the perfect itinerary for your visit and provide forecasted wait times to help you plan the perfect Disney day!

    I hope this helps, Chandler! Thanks for visiting us at planDisney, and please stop by and see us again if you have any other questions as you're thinking through the details of your trip. I hope you have a truly magical vacation next month!
