    What is in place of fast pass

    Hiya Bryna,

    Welcome to planDisney! So much has changed (and continues to change) at Walt Disney World Resort that keeping track can take a lot of work. I hope I can help get you up to speed for your next vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.

    With so many people flocking to Walt Disney World Resort lately, planning out your itinerary to maximize your day (including minimizing wait time in lines) is critical. As you mentioned, the Fast Pass system has retired but in its place, allow me to introduce you to Disney Genie and Genie+ services. Like Genie did for Aladdin, Disney Genie and Genie+ services seek to simplify your days in the Theme Parks. Disney Genie+ is the closest to the original fast pass system; it allows you access to Lightning Lane entrances which accelerate your wait in line for attractions and experiences and helps you bypass standby lines. Although this is similar to the fast passes of the past, this service is not complimentary (prices are per Guest and priced depending on the day), and it is considered an add-on to your Theme Park tickets. After purchasing Disney Genie+, beginning as early as 7:00 AM on the day you visit the Theme Parks, you can make your visit Lightning Lane selection. Then you can make additional Lightning Lane selections throughout the day at timed intervals. If you are used to the fast pass system, Genie+ can take some getting used to, but it can make your day a lot more enjoyable. Since you are unfamiliar with this new system, Bryna, I highly recommend checking out these videos (and the podcast below). If, after exploring these resources, you still have some questions, please come back and see us. All of us panelists have had a lot of experience using Disney Genie+ and would be happy to help you confidently use it by November.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
