    How do I get a Fast Pass?

    Hi there, Michael!  Welcome to planDisney!

    There's so much to see and do when you visit Disneyland Resort!  If you're anything like me, then you probably want to maximize the magic during your theme park visit by experiencing as many attractions as possible.  While the fast pass system is a thing of the past, I'm happy to share that there is a new way for Guests to skip certain standby queues and quickly access some of their favorite attractions.

    Using your Disneyland mobile app, you can now unlock the phenomenal cosmic power of the Disney Genie service.  Once you log into your account and link your theme park reservations and tickets, you can tell the Disney Genie what your interests are.  During your theme park visit, the Disney Genie will create a tip board to help you plan your day.  You will also have the option to purchase the Disney Genie+ service.  Disney Genie+ may be added to your park tickets at the time of purchase, or you may use your Disneyland app to buy Disney Genie+ for that particular day once you have entered one of the theme parks.

    Once you have purchased Disney Genie+, you can book Lightning Lane entries for some of your favorite attractions, one at a time and based on availability.  When you select a Lightning Lane return time, you may access the attraction during that one-hour time frame using the Lightning Lane entrance rather than waiting in the standby queue.  Certain top attractions are excluded from the Disney Genie+ service and require a separate Individual Lightning Lane purchase if you wish to bypass the standby queue.  In addition to Lightning Lane entries, your purchase of the Disney Genie+ service also gives you access to unlimited Disney PhotoPass downloads for that day, so you'll be able to relive all of your magical memories for years to come.

    Michael, I hope you enjoy your visit to Disneyland Resort, and may all your Disney wishes come true!
