    is fastness still going on?

    Eileen,

    Thanks for your question to planDisney!

    I am going to go out on a limb and assume you were asking if the Disney FastPass system was still running. No, FastPass is no longer running at Walt Disney World. However, Disney has replaced that system with the all-new Disney Genie program. Let me give you the basics on what you need to know about the three components of the Disney Genie program, so you can pick which best matches your planning needs. 

    Disney Genie: The basic Disney Genie service is free, and it runs within the My Disney Experience App. It serves up a daily itinerary for you, including dining and attraction recommendations based on your preferences. The recommendations come with valuable information like wait times, and links to online food ordering.

    Disney Genie+: If you pay to add the Disney Genie+ option, you can use the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane entrances for a reduced wait time. You can choose the next available boarding time at any of the 40 attractions currently listed across the four parks. You book that next magical experience, and then get to enjoy some other activities in the park until your arrival time comes due. 

    Individual Lightning Lane: These are typically 1 or 2 of the more popular attractions at each of the given parks where you can pay for an arrival window time. The prices vary, based on demand, and this can help you lock in that "Must Do!" experience that was at the top of your bucket list. You can purchase these, even if you are not using Disney Genie+. If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel you can make an Individual Lightning Lane purchase starting at 7 am the day of your visit, while other guests can start ordering when the park opens. 

    BONUS TIP
    Be sure you have the My Disney Experience App loaded onto your smart phone before entering the parks. The Disney Genie service is great at providing activity suggestions, as well as helping you with locating and ordering counter service meals with the Mobile Online Ordering service. 

    Write us back if you have any follow-up questions, or if this is not what you were asking about.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
