    What is in place now that they got rid of fast passes?

    Hi Ashley,

    Welcome to planDisney, and greetings from a former Hoosier! Escaping to sunny Florida next spring sounds like a fantastic idea!

    While you're correct that Disney FastPass+ has been officially retired, I'm happy to share that there are several brand new services designed to help you make the most of your Disney days! Disney Genie is a complimentary service that will help you personalize your itinerary and will even let you know projected wait times throughout the day. Disney Genie+ will allow you to skip the standby lines one attraction at a time all day long and take advantage of the Lightning Lanes for a small per person, per day fee. While Disney Genie+ does allow you access to most attractions (subject to availability), you'll need to purchase Individual Lightning Lane selections for the two most highly demanded attractions in each theme park. All three of these time-saving services are built into the must-have My Disney Experience app, so it really does feel like there's magic at your fingertips!

    The great thing about these new services is that you are welcome to pick and choose which ones to use. You may use one of them, all of them, or some combination in between. If you think you'd like to take advantage of Disney Genie+ on every day of your visit, you may add it to your tickets ahead of time. If you'd like to wait and see if you think you'll need it or only want to use it only on select days, you'll be able to add it one day at a time as you go. It will be available for purchase anytime after midnight, and you'll be able to make your first selection at 7:00 AM. Individual Lightning Lane selections will be available for Guests staying at Disney Resorts Collection hotels beginning at 7:00 AM while Guests staying elsewhere will need to wait until the theme park is open for the day. I'm sending pixie dust that these new tools help you plan your perfect Disney days and soak up every ounce of magic and fun once you arrive!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Ashley, and please let us know if we can help with anything else. I hope you have a truly magical vacation next spring!
