    If I have fast pass with my tickets is it the same as genie+

    Hi Britni! Welcome to planDisney! You are so close to arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort and starting your magical vacation! With less than a week remaining, I'm sure you are counting down the seconds!

    Since the phased reopening, Walt Disney World has stopped using its FastPass service and introduced Disney Genie, Disney Genie+, and Individual Lightning Lanes!  These new services were designed to help you maximize your day at the parks. Disney Genie is complimentary and provides tailored recommendations to help you navigate your way through the parks. There are live, interactive maps that will show you exactly where everything is and how to get to certain attractions and experiences. 

    Disney Genie+ is a paid service that allows you to access the Lightning Lane entrances on selected attractions to bypass the standby queue. If you purchased your tickets recently, you should have had an option to add this service to your tickets. If not, you can log on to your My Disney Experience account and select "Change Ticket" to add this to your multi-day ticket. You can also purchase Disney Genie+ the morning of each park day by selecting "My Genie Day" in the app and locating the purple bar that reads "Get Disney Genie+ For Today". Tap on this to continue with the purchase. You'll be able to make your first selection from the comfort of your resort room starting at 7 AM and then continue to make additional selections after you ride that attraction. 

    The Individual Lightning Lane attractions work slightly differently and are reserved for the most popular rides at each park. These attractions are not included in Disney Genie+ and have a separate cost associated with them. To bypass the wait time on these attractions, you will need to book an arrival window by purchasing one on the morning of your park day. Log on to your My Disney Experience App and select “Tip Board”. Once here, find the attraction you wish to ride and select the Individual Lightning Lane option. The price to purchase will be listed along with the next available return time. These prices change daily and are different for each attraction. 

    Britni, although the FastPass service is not available anymore, you still have a host of different options to help you navigate your day. If you would like more specific tips on how to effectively use Disney Genie+, find me again at planDisney and I will be happy to help you plan out your days! Have a magical vacation!

    See ya real soon!
