    Do you still get access to fast passes with your ticket or do you have to pay for them all now?

    Hiya, Carly! Welcome to planDisney, where we love helping our fellow Guests plan magical Disney vacations. 

    Your trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is fast approaching! I'm so happy to see you here, so eager to learn about all the new and exciting offerings that are waiting for you. When you land in Orlando, Spring will be in full bloom and your favorite Disney pals will be ready to welcome you home! But before you can think about all those thrilling things, let's get on with the question at hand.

    Carly, even though I am sorry to tell you that the FastPass+ service was discontinued back when the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks closed their gates in March 2020, I have wonderful news for you. The Disney Parks team worked long and hard to come up with a product that would appeal to their cherished Guests just as much (or more!) than FastPass+ did, and they finally launched the new Disney Genie service in October 2021. Disney Genie is a convenient and complimentary new service that you'll find in your My Disney Experience mobile app, and it was designed to create the perfect Disney day based on your party's interests. Now, if you decide to upgrade the service to Disney Genie+, you'll have access to special Disney PhotoPass lenses, Audio Tales (fun facts about the theme parks), and Lightning Lane entrances for over 40 attractions and experiences throughout the Resort... all for a great price. Sounds fantastic, doesn't it? Now, let me explain how you can go about purchasing Disney Genie+ for your vacation.

    If you do decide to upgrade Disney Genie to Disney Genie+, all you'll need to do is to log into your Disney account through the My Disney Experience mobile app. Click on the three lines at the bottom right corner of your screen, and then click on My Disney Day. Once here, scroll down just a bit until you see a purple banner with the option to "Get Disney Genie+ for Today". Simply click on it, follow the steps, and you're all done! I can promise you that you ain't never had a friend like that! 

    Carly, once you do upgrade the service, keep in mind that you'll only be able to make one Lightning Lane entrance selection at a time. On that note, I would also like to remind you that some attractions require you to purchase separate Lightning Lane entrances for a fee, which means that they won't be included in your Disney Genie+ purchase. If you have any other questions, remember that my friends and I are here to help, and we're always happy to assist you.

    See you real soon!
