    fast pass information

    Hi Debra! 

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney! The Disney FastPass system has now been replaced by a new service. But Hakuna Matata (no worries)! Your summer vacation will be here right before you know it, so let’s get into the current way to bypass the standby queues using the Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane options.  

    At the start of each day of your vacation, you’ll have the option to purchase Disney Genie+ and/or an Individual Lightning Lane. Using your My Disney Experience app, you will be able to purchase one or both of these options to maximize your time in the theme parks. 

    With Disney Genie+, you can select one attraction at a time to get access to its Lightning Lane (the bypass of the standby queue). As soon as you’ve used one, make your next selection to really make the most of your access! Most attractions throughout the theme parks have Lightning Lanes available via Disney Genie+.

    Individual Lightning Lane purchases are for those really popular attractions that usually have higher wait times for the standby queue like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT. You do not need to purchase Disney Genie+ in order to use this more à la carte option. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: If you would prefer not to purchase one of these options, I highly recommend to still use the totally free Disney Genie Service. With this, Genie (aka the magic of Disney technology) will provide you with tips throughout your day to help make the most of your time. Although it doesn’t grant Lightning Lane access, my family loves its features! We especially like its forecasted wait times for attractions.

    Debra, please don’t hesitate to give me a holler if you have any further questions about planning your upcoming Disney vacation! 

    Magic always,
