    I have Park Hopper tickets/reservations for October 5. I want to take advantage of something like Disney Max Passes, but understand that is being replaced by Genie+. Should I simply wait until October 4th to see what is available or buy Max Passes now?

    Hello, Anthony! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    Your trip to the Disneyland Resort is just around the corner! How exciting! You are correct that Disney FASTPASS Service and Disney MaxPass have been officially retired and Disney Genie+ will replace those services going forward. Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ will be debuted this fall, however we don't know the exact date as of yet. If Disney Genie+ is available during your trip on October 5th, you will be able to add Disney Genie+ for $20 per day, per ticket. You will add this option each day of your trip through the Disneyland app. If Disney Genie+ isn't yet offered, you will use the standby queues for most attractions and the virtual queues for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure. Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the official release date of Disney Genie.

    Once Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ go live, there will be an additional option to further maximize your time. Lightning Lane access for certain highly-demanded attractions, like Radiator Springs Racers, will be available for an individual purchase. You can schedule up to two return times per day for these certain highly-demanded attractions for an additional cost that will vary. These attractions will not be part of Disney Genie+. You will be able to purchase Lightning Lane access to these attractions in the Disneyland app as well. 

    I hope this helps! Have a wonderful day!
