    Do you have FastPass?

    Kailash,

    Thanks for your sending your question to planDisney! 

    The FastPass program has ended at Walt Disney World. Disney now uses the Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane programs to offer a similar, but different way to make sure you get to visit the iconic attractions that are important to you and your family.

    You may have heard about Disney Genie, a free feature of the My Disney Experience App that creates a daily itinerary for you, based on your preferences. But when it comes to reserving attraction reservations you will want to use either Disney Genie+ or the Individual Lighting Lane system, or possibly both. Let me explain these below

    Disney Genie+: You pay an extra daily fee to purchase the Disney Genie+ feature. With that you can use the Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane entrances for a reduced wait time. Via your My Disney Experience App you choose the next available boarding time at any of a number of select attractions. There are more than 40 attractions across the four theme parks, and you can go enjoy some other fun while you wait for your scheduled attraction time to come due.

    Individual Lightning Lane: This program focuses on the 1 or 2 of the most popular and newer attractions at each of the given parks where you can pay extra for an arrival window time. The prices vary over time, 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, whether you are using Disney Genie+ or not. 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. 

    But which should you do? It really is up to you. If your visit is just about getting on that one iconic, new attraction where you know the lines will be long, then the Individual Lighting Lane purchase may be all you need. However, if you are looking to get on many rides throughout the day, Disney Genie+ will increase the opportunity for you to get on several of the more sought-after attractions with less time in line. 

    Write us back if you have any follow up question.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
