    Hi, we have booked the different venues that we are going to visit when we come. But we were unsure about queuing for rides. Will all rides be done on a magic band or will we have to queue? Thanks

    Hello Simon!

    I can tell you are excited about your Walt Disney World vacation starting soon! The way the ride queues have worked has varied over recent years. The Walt Disney World rides and attractions currently have standby lines (queues). You don't need to use your MagicBand to enter the standby lines.

    The FastPass system is a thing of the past and has been replaced with the Disney Genie+ Service which first appeared in October 2021. The Genie+ service is an upgrade that Guests can purchase, giving Guests access to Lightning Lane Options (the Lightning Lane Options have replaced FastPass in Walt Disney World). 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. Keep in mind that prices are subject to change. 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 will need to use your MagicBand to enter the Lightning Lane line (queue).

    You can also purchase Individual Lightning Lane options (two per day limit, an extra cost per Individual Lightning Lane attraction). There are up to 2 Individual Lightning Lane options per theme park in Walt Disney World. Selections for the Individual Lightning Lane can be selected in the My Disney Experience App 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. You will need to use your MagicBand to enter the Individual Lightning Lane line (queue).

    I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation grants you all of your wishes!
