    Hello, I would like to know if by paying a room at a Disney ressort I get a fass pass ticket, or if they have to be bought separately? Thank you

    Hiya, Nelly! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy, it looks like you have an exciting vacation planned for Walt Disney World Resort later this year! You will be arriving at a wonderful time and have so much to look forward to. There's so much magic waiting around every corner as you experience The World's Most Magical Celebration! From the enchanting Beacons of Magic to all the sweet treats, it's sure to be a trip to remember. 

    You'll also be able to enjoy the Disney Genie service on your trip! Disney Genie is a free feature that you can access through the My Disney Experience app. This service can provide an individualized itinerary and tailored suggestions based on your personal preferences. It's a little like being taken on a magic carpet ride! Of course, you can always swap out options or follow your own path for the day - the choice is yours!

    Along with Disney Genie, you also have the option of purchasing the Disney Genie+ service and Individual Lightning Lane entrances. This is an upgraded version of the FastPass system which allows you to choose your favorite attractions to access their Lightning Lane entrance, minimizing wait times and maximizing the fun! The biggest change is that you will reserve your attractions the same day as your visit, not in advance. 

    If you decide to purchase Disney Genie+, you'll be able to select one attraction at a time for a Lightning Lane entrance at select attractions. There are over 40 experiences available throughout all four parks! 

    You could also choose to purchase Individual Lightning Lane entrances, which are offered for the one or two most popular rides at each park. This way, you'll be able to secure a ride on Remy's Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT or Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    If you'd like to take advantage of these options, you could decide to purchase Disney Genie+ service, Individual Lightning Lane entrances, or both - the choice is yours! Talk about "phenomenal cosmic powers!" 

    Nelly, if you're interested in purchasing Disney Genie+, you can upgrade your tickets when booking your vacation package to include this service for all your park days. If you'd prefer to just use Disney Genie+ on certain park days, it can also be purchased day-of in your My Disney Experience app. Disney Genie+ selections can be made starting at 7:00 AM on each of your park days.

    I hope I was able to help! If you have any other questions, feel free to reach back out. You've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon!
