    whats the difference between fast pass and genie service?

    Hi, Steve! 

    Thank you for stopping by. Let me help you navigate the new Genie+ service so that you can plan the perfect trip!

    The new Genie+ service replaced Fast Pass options at the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. This new option continues to give you access to shorter attractions queues, so the essence of the program hasn't changed. 

    The critical difference is that now you have to opt-in every morning to decide if you're going to use Genie+ or not. This paid service also includes Disney PhotoPass downloads at the Disneyland Resort, which is fantastic if you come with family and friends. 

    After opting in, you will be able to start selecting attractions according to your interests and daily planning, so it's wise to look at the service and research the different strategies you can use. 

    It's important to note that Genie+ doesn't include fast access to all attractions. Some of them, such as Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, have to be purchased separately as Individual Lightning Lanes. It's wise to read about those in advance so that you can budget and plan your days accordingly. 

    I hope this answer helps you make the most of your time at the Disneyland Resort with Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes!

    May the magic be with you,
