    I only have 4 days at Disney, 1 park a day. How do I get a fast pass or what ever the plan is now to save on wait times?

    Welcome to planDisney, Carla!  We are glad you brought your question to us.

    Disney Genie+ service launched at Walt Disney World Resort last fall.  With Disney Genie+, Guests can reserve Lightning Lane access to over 40 rides and attractions, one at a time.

    Disney Genie+ is purchased through the My Disney Experience mobile app.  Look for the purple banner on the home screen, or navigate to the Tip Board using the plus button or the menu button at the bottom of the home screen and select "Purchase for Today".  Disney Genie+ may be purchased on the date you plan to use the service, anytime after midnight.  Since Guests may reserve their first Lightning Lane attraction beginning at 7:00 am, I recommend completing your purchase a few moments before that.  Guests may reserve additional Lighting Lane attractions after redeeming the first, or every 2 hours beginning 2 hours after the scheduled park opening time, whichever comes first.  To reserve Lightning Lane access, simply choose "Book Experience" from the Tip Board.

    Some of the most popular attractions have been designated as Individual Lightning Lane attractions.  Through August 7, 2022, Individual Lightning Lane experiences are:

    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will also have a Virtual Queue available at no cost; Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, and Avatar Flight of Passage will also offer a traditional standby queue.

    Individual Lightning Lane attractions are purchased a la carte, with a limit of up to two different Individual Lightning Lane attractions per day.  Disney Genie+ service is not required to purchase Individual Lightning Lanes.  Guests who are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, Shades of Green, or the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels may purchase Individual Lightning Lane attractions beginning at 7:00 am.  All other Guests may purchase at the scheduled park opening time.

    Carla, I know all of that sounds confusing, but once you start using Disney Genie+ I think you'll find you get the hang of it very quickly.  I have found Disney Genie+ to be most beneficial at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios.  I felt I really didn't need it at EPCOT or Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.  At those parks, you might consider purchasing the Individual Lightning Lane attractions to save time.

    If you have any additional questions, please stop by and see us again.  Enjoy your visit!
