    Hi! I bought tickets with lightening lane. Does this work like a fast pass where we have access to shorter lines? Or is there something else I should have purchased?

    Hello, Vanessa! 

    It seems like you already added Genie+ to your tickets, and, girl, that's a smart move! 

    Genie+ will indeed give you access to Lightning Lane queues (formerly known as FastPass queues), and that will save you precious time at the theme parks. The key to unlocking Genie's phenomenal powers is to activate it on the Disneyland Mobile App as soon as you enter the theme parks, right after the turnstiles. 

    Once you enter the park, open your Disneyland Mobile App, click on the plus sign at the bottom, and choose "View My Genie Day and Tip Board." Then you should go straight to the Tip Board (on the left of the screen). You will notice that some attractions only have Standby Line information (that will be the case for Autopia, for example). But some attractions have a Standby Line and a Lightning Lane, and your Tip Board will show them on top of each other. This is where you'll select the LL Disney Genie+ option to book that experience at the available time. 

    You will be able to make new LL Disney Genie+ selections as soon as you redeem your current choice or two hours after making your selection, whichever comes first. 

    It's also important to know that three attractions at the Disneyland Resort have Lightning Lane queues that don't come with Genie+. They are Star Wars: Rise of the ResistanceWEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure, and Radiator Springs Racers. To enter these attractions through the Lightning Lane queue, you will have to purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for each attraction. This option will also appear on your Tip Board, so there's no mystery there! 

    I hope this helps you create an extraordinary itinerary for your Disneyland Resort visit, Vanessa! Let us know if you have any other questions, and your wish will be our command! 

    May the magic be with you,
