    Are there fast passes being used at Disneyworld?

    Hello Beata! 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for submitting your question! I was also a big fan of the Fastpass system, so I am thrilled to be answering your question today. 

    Unfortunately, FastPasses are no longer in use at the Walt Disney World Resort. However, since Disney loves innovating and creating new systems, you now have a whole new world of possibilities available to you! Disney Genie is a new service that makes planning your Disney vacation much easier. Disney Genie takes your preferences, likes and dislikes, and must-dos and creates itineraries just for you. This option is completely free and includes further add-ons that can make all your wishes come true.

    One of the options you can purchase is Disney Genie+ service which allows you to select available return times for your favourite attractions. One of the main differences between this program and the FastPasses you are used to is that you have to use your first selection before you can select another available return time. This means that unlike FastPasses, you cannot have multiple return times simultaneously through Disney Genie+. However, this service allows you to experience more than 40 eligible attractions across the four theme parks without having to wait in line! You can purchase the Disney Genie+ service at $15.00 plus tax per Guest per day (as of January 19, 2021) and it can be added to your ticket upon purchase. Another way you can purchase the service is also by signing into your My Disney Experience Mobile App and purchasing it through the Disney Genie service. Then, you will be all set to start making selections!

    Similarly, you can also purchase individual Lightning Lanes, which are the closest option to the individual FastPasses you are used to. For this service, resort hotel guests can start purchasing individual Lightning Lanes at 7 a.m. either through the Disney Genie service or by going into the "My Plans" section of your My Disney Experience mobile app. In contrast, regular guests can start purchasing Lightning Lanes when the park opens. You can purchase one Lightning Lane at a time for up to two different attractions per day and you can purchase this service independently from the Disney Genie+ service. Once you have made your pick, you will be able to soar, tumble and freewheel through the parks like you're on a magic carpet ride! 

    I hope this was helpful, Beata, and that all your wishes come true on your next Disney vacation. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out. After all, you ain't never had a friend like us! 

    Have a magical day,
