    I have made reservations for myself and my family. (3 total) I understand that Fast Pass is no longer an option. Do you know if is there another way to avoid wasting so much time waiting in line to get on a ride?

    Hey there, Thomas, your trip to the Disneyland Resort is right around the corner - how exciting!

    I'm also thrilled to share some good news that there is a way to spend "more time doin', and less time queuin'" as my fellow panelist Jason K would say. My favorite way to shorten your wait times for attractions is by using the Genie+ service!

    When you purchase Genie+, you get access to the Lightning Lane entrances for some of the most popular attractions at both parks. The Genie+ service allows you to select an arrival window for Lightning Lane entrances at select attractions, one at a time, all day long. It comes with other perks as well - like unlimited PhotoPass downloads! When my family and I visit, we utilize the Genie+ service to not only get access to shorter lines but also make it a point to stop at as many PhotoPass photographers as we can to have professional photos of our family to help commemorate our vacation.

    There are also a few attractions at the Disneyland Resort that utilize Individual Lightning Lanes. With Individual Lightning Lanes, you don't need to purchase the Genie+ service (you purchase the Individual Lightning Lanes separately for each member of your group that wants to ride), so these are a great option if you really want to make sure you get a chance to ride the most popular attractions in the parks. The Individual Lightning Lane attractions are Radiator Springs Racers at Disney California Adventure Park, and Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disneyland Park.

    You can purchase the Genie+ service upon entering a theme park via the Disneyland mobile app, but note that the service is subject to limited availability and is not guaranteed to be available. The Individual Lightning Lanes are similarly limited and may be able to be purchased upon entering one of the parks.

    I hope this was helpful, Thomas! Thank you again for your question. Please feel free to write me back directly if you think of any follow-up questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
