    do you buy fast pass tickets?

    Hi Katie!

    Welcome to planDisney! I have so many fond memories of running around the Walt Disney World Resort collecting FastPasses for some of my children’s favorite attractions when they were small. When FastPass+ arrived, we enjoyed selecting their favorites and knowing they would get to ride those attractions before we even left home! While both FastPass and FastPass+ were included as part of your theme park purchase, both of these programs have been permanently retired.

    While not yet available, Disney has announced the newest exciting way for Guests to experience shorter-than-typical waits will be the new Genie+ service! All Guests will have access to Disney Genie’s complimentary planning options for the day on their mobile phone, while Guests who choose to may purchase the expanded Genie+ service. Genie+ will allow Guests to select, one at a time, access to an attraction’s Lightning Lane. At launch, Genie+ is planned to cost $15 per ticket per day at the Walt Disney World Resort, and $20 per ticket per day at the Disneyland Resort. In addition to Genie+, for Guests wishing to experience the newest and most popular attractions with shorter waits, Guests will also be able to purchase access to specific individual attractions. No pricing has been released for that option yet.

    Right now, we are still waiting for Mickey to tell us when Genie+ will be available for purchase. While Disney has stated that it plans to launch Genie+ this fall, we don’t have an exact timeline. Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest announcements, as this is where all the exciting news hits first!

    Happy Planning!
