    Is there a way to reserve ride times? Last time we visited fast passes were being utilized. I have read that program no longer exists but can't find any info on what may have taken it's place.

    Hi Nate! Welcome to planDisney!

    You must be SO excited to visit the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few more days! There is a lot that will be taking place during your visit with the opening of attractions, restaurants, new nighttime spectaculars, and more. The Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary celebration will create many memories that you will cherish for years to come!

    After the Walt Disney World theme parks reopened last year, FastPass+ was made unavailable. Recently, it was announced that this service would retire completely to make way for a new program called Disney Genie+ Service and Lightning Lane entrance. There are multiple parts to this new offering with a complimentary planning component called Disney Genie Service, plus paid services for individual attractions called Lightning Lane and for multiple attractions called Disney Genie+.

    While details are still emerging about these new services that will be part of the My Disney Experience mobile app, we know that they will launch this fall. We don't know the exact date yet, but I anticipate the announcement will come soon. I recommend keeping a close watch on the Disney Parks Blog for more information. Until then, all Guests will simply head to the standby queue for attractions.

    I hope you have the BEST vacation, Nate! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
