    How do I purchase the fast passes?

    Hey there, Emily! It's my pleasure to welcome you to planDisney and I'm so happy you dropped by with your question. 

    Vacation time is precious and as a guest who always wants to squeeze the most Magic out of every day, hour, and minute, I appreciate this question. First, it's important to note that the Fastpass+ system retired, but I'm glad to introduce you to Disney Genie+ and Lightning Lanes! 

    Disney Genie+ is available to purchase daily through your My Disney Experience Mobile App. You can buy this service as early as 12:00 AM on the day of your park visit, but if you're channeling your inner Sleeping Beauty at that hour, I'll encourage you to wake up early to purchase before 7:00 AM because that is the time you can make your first selection. (And... many guests do, so I encourage you to set an alarm!)

    Emily, to get the best usage from Disney Genie+ take a few moments to read up a bit on this service in advance of your visit and make note of which attractions offer a Lightning Lane entrance. You will see that there are a few popular attractions NOT included, but priced separately (and individually).
    These are: 
         - Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom
         - TRON Lightcycle / Run at Magic Kingdom Park
         - Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT
         - Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at Disney's Hollywood Studios

    Now, Emily, to make sure you are ready to purchase Disney Genie+ and/or Individual Lightning Lanes, from the home screen on your My Disney Experience Mobile App, click on the tile labeled "My Disney Genie Day." When you toggle to the "Tip Board" at the top, you'll see the option to "Purchase for Today." When you click through the prompts, you'll confirm if you would like the service for multiple parks (if you have a Park Hopper ticket) or one park (you'll see that the pricing reflects this). Once you make that selection, the next screen will prompt you to select which guests are included in this purchase. (Disney Genie+ is priced PER guest, so keep that in mind as you're budgeting.) You can even practice making this purchase through the app and just skip the final step of entering your credit card information, so you're ready to go on your first park day.

    Emily, I would be happy to answer any other questions regarding Disney Genie+ and beyond, so just come on back to planDisney anytime! Wishing you a pixie-dusted visit.
