    Can you explain the new FastPass system? I read that I can make reservations 30 days in advance. We will be at WDW on Feb 24 and Feb 25

    Hello there Helena!

    Thank you so much for sending us your question today and welcome to planDisney. I see that your vacation is coming so very soon - you must be so excited! I cannot wait for you to come and experience The World's Most Magical Celebration, and maybe even the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival depending on how long you will be staying. With so many new offerings to discover, I just know you and your loved ones are going to have the best day ever!

    Now let's talk about how you can make the most out of your magical vacation! Helena, you're in luck cause up your sleeves you've got a brand of magic never fails! Although the FastPasses that we knew are no longer being used, this only means that you have a whole new world of possibilities available to you. Indeed, there is a new way to add some punch and pizazz to your visit and you don't even have to rub a magic lamp! Disney Genie, Disney Genie+ and individual Lightning Lanes are all available via the My Disney Experience mobile app and will make all your dreams come true. Disney Genie is a complimentary service that takes your preferences and must-dos into account and creates an itinerary based on the information you provide and real-time data. Then, if you want to skip the lines and enjoy your favourite attractions, you can do so either by using Disney Genie+ or individual Lightning Lanes. Disney Genie+ is a one-time purchase that allows you to select return times for some of your favourite rides. If you would like to experience some of the most in-demand rides, you can purchase an individual Lightning Lane, which basically acts as a FastPass. Contrary to FastPasses, however, these selections can only be made on the day of your visit.

    When it comes to pricing and purchasing these services, there are a few things to note. As aforementioned, Disney Genie+ is a one-time purchase that allows you to select more than one ride throughout your day, but only one at a time. As of today, February 17th, 2022, Disney Genie+ costs $15 per person per day. As for individual Lightning Lanes, prices will vary depending on the attraction. Both services can be purchased by going into your My Disney Experience mobile app, clicking on the three bars at the bottom right of your screen, and then on "My Genie Day." Then, you will be able to either purchase Disney Genie+ or buy individual Lightning Lanes in the "Tip Board" section. Now, Helena, make sure to do as Aladdin did and use your three wishes! As they are not mutually exclusive, you can use all three services together to truly get the most out of your vacation.  

    I hope this was helpful, Helena, and that you have the best day ever on your next Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your magical vacation, don't hesitate to reach out. You ain't never had a friend like us!

    Have a magical day and may all your wishes come true,
