    how do fast passes work

    Hello Pam!

    I loved using the Walt Disney World FastPass System to save time in line on my Walt Disney World vacations! The FastPass system is a thing of the past now, with the introduction of the Disney Genie service in the Fall of 2021. The Disney Genie service is available to all Guests of Walt Disney World, accessed within the My Disney Experience Mobile App. The Disney Genie service will help you create a personalized itinerary, keep track of your reservations, give recommendations for your day in the park, show maps and information of the park you are in, and so much more!

    There is an upgrade to the Disney Genie service, which is the Disney Genie+ service. The Genie+ service is an upgrade that can be purchased, 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. 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 can also purchase Individual Lightning Lane options (two per day limit, which is an extra cost per Individual Lightning Lane attraction). There are 2 Individual Lightning Lane options per theme park in Walt Disney World. Selections for the Individual Lightning Lane can be selected and purchased at 7:00 am for Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resorts and at the time of park opening for all other Guests.

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