    I have already bought tickets, I'm looking into the Genie + Lighting Pass, or just the Lighting Pass. Is the Genie + Lighting Pass like the old Fastpass? I notice the Lighting Pass is only good for 2 rides

    Hi there, Stacy! Welcome to planDisney!

    It looks like your trip to the Disneyland Resort is coming up in just a few short weeks! You're in luck, as your trip times up perfectly to catch some of the action at the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival! Whether you sample some tasty bites from the Festival Marketplaces or book a Wine, Beer and Mixology Education and Tasting Seminar, you'll never run out of options at this classic festival.

    Stacy, I see you've become familiar with my good friend, the Genie! These services are a bit different than what we're all used to from the past, but I'm happy to explain the new system to help you navigate during your stay. Disney Genie+ is an add-on to your tickets that allows you faster access to nearly 20 rides across both theme parks. You will be able to make one attraction selection at a time once you enter the park using the Disneyland Mobile App. The Tip Board portion of the app (select the menu button in the bottom right corner of the Home Screen, followed by "Tip Board") will be your go-to spot to make selections and will allow you to select the next available arrival window for each attraction. Once you scan into that attraction using the Lightning Lane entrance, you are eligible to make your next selection.

    There are a few attractions that are not included with your purchase of Disney Genie+. These include Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Disneyland Park and Radiator Springs Racers and WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure in Disney California Adventure Park. To utilize the Lightning Lane for these rides, you will need to make an additional Individual Lightning Lane purchase. You can purchase up to two Individual Lightning Lane attractions per day and like Genie+, you'll be given the next available arrival window. It is important to note that you can purchase Individual Lightning Lane attractions with or without purchasing Disney Genie+.

    I find it very helpful to make a wish list of attractions before my stay. If that list is pretty long and includes many of the rides and attractions available through Disney Genie+, I'll make the purchase so that I can experience as many of my wish list items as possible! If my list is a bit shorter and I'd like to spend more time shopping, dining and taking in the magic in other ways, I will forego purchasing Disney Genie+ and maybe just grab an Individual Lightning Lane purchase to add some variety to my itinerary! It all depends on how you'd like to spend your time at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    I hope I've helped clear up any confusion for you, Stacy! Enjoy your magic carpet ride with Disney Genie services!

    Have a magical day,
