    We are planning a visit in October. On past visits tickets came with 2 complimentary “fast passes” I see that they are “lightning lane” now. Do we still get the 2 complimentary “lightning lane tickets” with general admission or do we have to use genie+?

    Hi Chelsa! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    October is such a perfect month to visit Walt Disney World Resort.  The summer crowds start to thin, the weather cools down a bit and you're in for magical extras like the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! If you're interested in tons of semi-spooky fun and easy access to some of your favorite rides and attractions at Magic Kingdom I suggest grabbing your "Not-So-Scary" Tickets now!

    You're correct that Guests of the Resort used to use the FastPass system to get on to some of their favorite attractions with little to no wait. However, this system has been laid to rest (maybe in the Haunted Mansion) and has been replaced by your friend, Disney Genie+ Service. Genie+ can be used to reserve your party's space in line so that when you use your "Lightning Lane" you get to hop right on the ride! While no longer complimentary, Disney Genie offers two ways to get you into your favorite attractions and shows faster so that you can really make the most of your time within the Theme Parks.  

    With the purchase of Disney Genie+ Service for $15 per Guest, per day (prices subject to change) you and your party will be able to start booking your Lightning Lane attractions at 7 a.m. sharp.  There are over 40 attractions with available Lightning Lanes, and you can even use this Service at more than one Park per day if you plan to use a Park Hopper Option Theme Park Ticket
    If you're set with waiting in a traditional standby queue those are still available and do not require the purchase of Disney Genie+. 

    If you don't think Genie+ is for you but you're really hoping to save the galaxy on the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind or Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance you can also purchase an Individual Lightning Lane for a few of the most popular attractions in each of the four Theme Parks. 

    Both Lightning Lanes and Individual Lightning Lanes can be used together or separately to help you really make the most of your magical day!  Enjoy!
