    It has been 18 months since I have been home for a visit and I feel lost. I am passholder, but for the life of me can not figure out how to make fast passes, or if they are doing fast passes. I do have my reservations for the park. Can you please help?

    Welcome to planDisney, Meredith!

    Think of a wonderful thought. Any merry little thought.” I bet I know what you’re thinking of, Meredith! You’re thinking about coming Home to Walt Disney World Resort. The last two years have been quite difficult, and I completely understand your desire to visit your happy place. For many of us, The Most Magical Place on Earth provides comfort, where Guests can experience the magic and not dwell on the stresses of everyday life. A place where we can let our inner child out through imagination and great storytelling. 

    Meredith, you’re on the right track by having made your Disney Park Pass reservations! Guests need both a theme park ticket and a Disney Park Pass reservation to enter a theme park. 

    The reason you aren’t able to make any fast passes is that the FastPass+ service has been discontinued. Instead, starting October 19th, the Disney Genie service is being introduced through Guests' My Disney Experience Mobile app. This complimentary service will help Guests plan their best Disney day by choosing their preferred experiences and then creating an ideal, personalized itinerary for them. 

    Additionally, Guests will be introduced to the Disney Genie+ and Lightning Lane entrance, which will be available for purchase in two different ways.  By purchasing Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane selections, Guests will be able to use the entrance to more than 40 attractions available one at a time throughout the day. You can also purchase Individual Lightning Lane selections; these are the highly sought-after attractions such as Avatar Flight of Passage and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and can be purchased up to 2 attractions a day beginning October 19th.

    We can’t wait to welcome you Home, Meredith. Have an enchanting visit!
