    Hi! I bought genie+ but am not really sure how it works - what do I have to doto go through the express lines on the attractions? so I need to buy anything else? I heard fast pass was retired but it's not clear to me if genie+ substitutes it. Tks!!!

    Hello, Camila! These are all great questions, and I would be happy to help.

    If you are familiar with the sunsetted Fastpass system, some elements of Genie+ may feel similar. For example, with Genie+, you can book Lightning Lanes, which will give you a return time for access to a shorter attraction queue.

    However, other elements of Genie+ are different. First, Guests will need to purchase Genie+ for a small fee. You can buy Genie+ either in advance with your ticket or on the day of your visit using the Disneyland Mobile App. Just note, if buying through the app, you will not be able to purchase Genie+ until you are physically in one of the theme parks.

    All Lightning Lanes will be booked directly through the Disneyland Mobile App. You can only book one Lightning Lane at a time. To be eligible to book the next Lightning Lane, you either need to redeem your previous Lightning Lane or wait two hours after your last one was booked (whichever comes first). Once it is your time to redeem your Lightning Lane, you will pull up the barcode on your phone and scan it at the ride entrance.

    Another perk of Genie+ that not enough people know about is free Disney PhotoPass downloads. If you have Genie+ and have a photo taken with a Disney PhotoPass photographer, don’t forget to have them scan your app so you can access the photo for free later.

    Please have an incredible experience at the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Ta-ta for now,
