    Hello Sorry for bothering you. But last time visit is little hard because ride time so long and we have no fast pass because all sold out. So please help me and explain how can I buy fast pass for rides. Thanks

    Welcome to planDisney, Fazan! You could never bother us because we're here to help, so please feel free to come to us whenever you have a burning Disney question on your mind.

    Fazan, I'm pleased to tell you that there is a way to bypass the standby lines at select attractions at Walt Disney World Resort, and it's called Disney Genie+ service. When you purchase Disney Genie+, you can select return times to enter through the Lightning Lane for your favorite attractions and spend less time waiting in line! When I use it, I find that I'm usually able to get return times for around three or four attractions each day, so it really does save a lot of time!

    Disney Genie+ is available for purchase beginning at midnight each day and can be purchased one day at a time for as many days of your trip as you choose. I recommend purchasing it before 7 a.m. because that is when you'll be able to start making your Lightning Lane selections. When the clock strikes 7 a.m., open up the My Disney Experience app and make your first Lightning Lane selection of the day. You'll be able to see all of the available attractions and what the current return time is for each one. Once the Theme Park you're visiting opens for the day, you will be able to make more Lightning Lane return time selections every two hours, or once you've used the last one you selected, whichever comes first. Your Disney Genie Tip Board will display the time you'll be able to make your next selection, so set an alarm for just before that time so you stay on top of it!

    Each of the four Theme Parks also has one attraction for which a Lightning Lane can be purchased à la carte. For example, if you want to use the Lightning Lane for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney's Hollywood Studios, you will purchase an individual Lightning Lane selection for each member of your party who wants to ride. With these selections, you can choose the time you want to ride, so plan it around any dining reservations or other Disney Genie+ selections that you have! You do not need to have purchased Disney Genie+ for that day to purchase an individual Lightning Lane, they operate separately and you can choose to use or not use whichever one you want.

    I hope this answers your question, Fazan, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
