    Sharleen from GA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I would like to know more about Fast passes. Is there a fee? We have 8 adults and 2 children in our group.

    Welcome back to planDisney, Sharleen! 

    I’m sure you’re getting so excited for your holiday trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth! I always love the Disney theme parks during the most wonderful time of the year! I’m sure you’ll feel like you’ve taken a magic carpet ride to a whole new world! 

    Speaking of a whole new world - Walt Disney World Resort is rolling out a brand new, complimentary, digital service this fall! Disney Genie is coming to grant your wishes! You’ve never had a friend like this! Though the beloved FastPass+ service has entered permanent retirement in the Cave of Wonders, Disney Genie will replace it with a newly imagined way to allow you to join virtual queues, chat with virtual assistants, view projected attraction wait times, make mobile food and beverage orders, and so much more! (This service will be available as an integrated part of the My Disney Experience Mobile App.)

    Within Disney Genie, the Disney Genie+ service will also allow Guests to (for the price of $15 per day, per ticket) choose the next available time to arrive at a wide variety of rides and experiences using the Lightning Lane entrance (similar to the previous FastPass+ lane entrance) at participating attractions. You can continue to make one selection at a time throughout each day at the theme parks!

    You’ll also have the option to purchase Individual Attraction Selections! With this separate option (not included in the price or selections of Disney Genie+) you’ll be able to use Lightning Lane entrance at up to two highly popular attractions each day, Sharleen! (Pricing for this option will vary by dates, attractions, and theme parks. Further information will be released closer to the launch of this service.) 

    We’re all interested to see how these services will work. I’m keeping my eye on the Disney Genie page (they have a comprehensive video to watch that I’d highly recommend) and the Disney Parks Blog to help me prepare for this change. I’m right there with you, Sharleen! 

    If you have additional questions about this service, we’d be happy to share what knowledge we do have! We can show you the world (or at least part of it) at planDisney!
