    How do we make attraction reservations (ie fast pass)?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    In the past there was the FastPass program, but at the start of 2022 Disney replaced that with an all-new set of programs that include the ability to make attraction reservations. Ride or show reservations are all now made the day you are visiting a park.

    The combined programs of Disney Genie, Genie+, and Individual Lightning Lanes are interrelated. The second two parts of this trio of associated programs are involved in making ride reservations, but I will describe all three, just so you know how they all work.

    • Disney Genie: The basic Disney Genie service is free, and it runs within the My Disney Experience App. It serves up a daily itinerary for you, including dining and attraction recommendations based on your preferences. The recommendations come with valuable information like wait times, and links to online food ordering.
    • Disney Genie+: If you pay to add the Disney Genie+ option, you can use the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane entrances for a reduced wait time. You can choose the next available boarding time at any of the 40 attractions currently listed across the four parks. You book that next magical experience, and then get to enjoy some other activities in the park until your arrival time comes due. 
    • Individual Lightning Lane: These are available at the 2 most popular attractions at each of the given parks where you can pay for an arrival window time. The prices vary, based on demand, and this can help you lock in that "Must Do!" experience that was at the top of your bucket list. You can purchase these, even if you are not using Disney Genie+. 

    So, Disney Genie+ and the Individual Lightning Lane programs are how you can make ride reservations, but you can only make those reservations on that day that you will be in the park. No, you cannot reserve ride times ahead of your visit. 

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel you can make an Individual Lightning Lane purchase starting at 7 am the day of your visit, while other guests can only start ordering when the park opens. 

    Write me back if you have any other questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
