    I want to book a day at disney for my family of 6. I want to know if there are fast passes or what I need to get to skip lines etc.

    Hello Sam!

    I can tell you are planning a fabulous Walt Disney World day for your family! 

    First, you will need to purchase your one-day Walt Disney World tickets for you and your family, and you can add the Disney Genie+ service to your tickets when you are buying them. The Disney Genie+ service has replaced the FastPass system. Next, you need to make a theme park reservation for your tickets. To reserve your first theme park of the day, you will have to do a couple of things:
    1. Link your Walt Disney World Tickets to your My Disney Experience Account
    2. Check the Park availability for the first park you want to start in on that particular day
    3. Make a Theme Park Reservation for your first park of the day for each day of your tickets

    There are three incredible services available to Guests to help make their Disney day more magical. They are the Disney Genie service, Disney Genie+ service, and Individual Lightning Lane. The Disney Genie service is available to all Guests of Walt Disney World, accessed within the My Disney Experience Mobile App. The Disney Genie service will help you create a personalized itinerary, keep track of your reservations, give recommendations for your day in the park, show maps and information of the park you are in, and so much more!

    There is an upgrade to the Disney Genie service, the Disney Genie+ service. The Genie+ service is an upgrade to Walt Disney World park tickets that can be purchased, giving guests access to Lightning Lane Options and many more benefits. More than 40 Lightning Lane experiences in the four theme parks are included in the Disney Genie+ service. Currently, the Disney Genie+ service is available for $15 plus tax (United States Dollars) per Guest per day. If you have purchased the Disney Genie+ service, then you can make your first Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 am on the day of your visit. Once you have redeemed your initial choice or the time arrival window has passed, then you can use the My Disney Experience App to check your My Day Itinerary or Tip Board to see when you can make your next Lightning Lane selection. You can make Lightning Lane selections up to the regular park closing for that particular day.

    You can also purchase Individual Lightning Lane options (two per day limit, an extra cost per Individual Lightning Lane attraction). There are 2 Individual Lightning Lane options per theme park in Walt Disney World. Selections for the Individual Lightning Lane can be selected and purchased at 7:00 am for Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resorts and at the time of park opening for all other Guests. Guests can purchase Individual Lightning Lane options without purchasing the Disney Genie+ service. 

    I hope that your family's Walt Disney World day is incredible!
