    How can I get a Fast Pass for the safari ride at Animal Kingdom?

    Hello Susan!

    I love Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and I especially enjoy Kilimanjaro Safaris because you never know what animals you will see around each bend!

    The FastPass system is a thing of the past and has been replaced with the Disney Genie+ Service which first appeared in October 2021. The Genie+ Service is an upgrade that Guests can purchase, giving Guests access to Lightning Lane Options (the Lightning Lane Options have replaced FastPass in Walt Disney World). More than 40 Lightning Lane experiences in the four theme parks are included in the Disney Genie+ service. Currently, the Disney Genie+ service is available for $15 plus tax (United States Dollars) per Guest per day. Keep in mind that prices are subject to change. If you have purchased the Disney Genie+ service, then you can make your first Lightning Lane selection at 7:00 am on the day of your visit. Once you have redeemed your initial choice or the time arrival window has passed, then you can use the My Disney Experience App to check your My Day Itinerary or Tip Board to see when you can make your next Lightning Lane selection. You can make Lightning Lane selections up to the regular park closing for that particular day. You will need to use your MagicBand to enter the Lightning Lane line (queue). Kilimanjaro Safaris is part of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park Lightning Lane offerings, so I would recommend scheduling this attraction as your first Genie+ Lightning Lane option for the day. If you cannot secure a Lightning Lane for Kilimanjaro Safaris, go to the Kilimanjaro Safaris standby line as soon as the park opens to lessen your time waiting in line.

    I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation grants you all of your wishes!
