    How do you make ride reservations since fast pass is no longer available? Thanks

    Hi Larry! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    There are so many special parts of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! From catching your first glimpse of Cinderella Castle to Character Dining Experiences to magical stays at Disney Resorts Collection hotels, The Most Magical Place on Earth is certainly full of fun. We do know, however, that most of the time Guests are interested in experiencing all the classic and brand-new Disney rides and attractions! 

    While Guests of Walt Disney World Resort are always welcome to wait in the traditional standby queue for almost every attraction throughout all four Theme Parks, there is an incredible new service, called Disney Genie+ Service, which has replaced the "FastPass" system that you remember.  Now, you can summon the Genie to help you plan your day and maximize your time in the Parks.  The complimentary Disney Genie supplies tips about wait times for rides and attractions and allows you to conveniently map out your day with your interests and already made Advance Dining Reservations. 

    Disney Genie+ Service is exactly what you're looking for when it comes to reserving return times for your favorite attractions and shows so that you can essentially "skip" the line by going through the "Lightning Lane"! Guests can use Disney Genie+ right through their My Disney Experience mobile app.  Each day you'll have the choice to purchase this service for your upcoming day in the Theme Parks.  Right at 7 a.m. sharp, hop onto your Disney Genie+ to make your first Lightning Lane selection.  After you've scanned into that attraction or waited two hours after Park opening time (whichever comes first), you'll be able to book another attraction.

    With Individual Lightning Lanes, Guests are able to make separate purchases to use the Lightning Lane on a few of the most popular attractions within each Park that are not covered by Genie+.  As a Disney Resort Guest or a Guest of a few other select Resorts, you'll be able to book these attractions, such as Avatar Flight of Passage and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, at 7 a.m.  All other Park Guests can make their first Individual Lightning Lane selections at the official Park opening time.  

    Make sure to check out the Disney Genie section of the Walt Disney World Resort website to learn more about the service and to see the more than 40 attractions that are included with your purchase.

    See ya real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
