    I am looking for a way to have the best experience on my Disney trip. I want to know more about Fast Passes and how to obtain them, and how to use them.

    Hi Najet!

    Walt Disney World is so festive during the holidays! The parks are decked in zillions of twinkling lights, thousands of bright red poinsettias, and hundreds of brilliantly decorated Christmas trees. I adore the Mickey shaped wreaths that adorn the lampposts.

    You've never had a friend like Genie! Disney's Genie+ is a new system that grants your wish to spend more time zipping and dipping on roller coasters and encountering favorite characters and less time waiting in line. Replacing the retired FastPass+, Genie+ allows you to pick a one hour time window for Lightning Lane access for attractions, one ride at a time, using your My Disney Experience app.You can reserve your first one starting at 7:00 am. If you snag a 9:30 am time for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, as soon as you tap into the wildest ride in the wilderness, you can book your next ride. You can use as many Genie+ Lightning Lane accesses as time and demand allow. On a recent trip, I was able to book half a dozen in the Magic Kingdom and then hop over to Epcot and book a couple more. This ticket add-on is $15.00 per day per ticket. You may purchase Genie+ in advance for your length of stay or buy it the day of your park visit. 

    Highly popular attractions, such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, offer individual Lightning Lane selections as a separate purchase. These are also acquired through your My Disney Experience app and you may buy up to two per day. Price varies by attraction and date. 

    Najet, Disney's Genie+ is brand new and includes much information. If you have additional questions, planDisney is happy to answer them for you.

    Wishing you the very merriest visit to see Mickey!
