    As of right now I just have a question as to how do you get the fast passes for the rides and also what do you think the best resorts would be for teenagers because there will be two 15 year olds on our trip and two adults

    Hi Olivia! I’m glad you brought your great question to planDisney! I’m happy to help!

    FastPass has officially retired to the Disney vault. In its place is a whole new world of Disney park-going! Disney Genie+ is a service that Guests can purchase to add some flexibility to their visit. This feature, which is available on your My Disney Experience app, will allow Guests to skip the wait in line for over 40 attractions throughout the Disney Parks! Additionally, the most popular attractions in the Disney Parks can be accessed through the brand new Lightning Lane option! This allows Guests to skip the lines for some of the most popular attractions such as Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Avatar - Flight of Passage, and others!

    I am also the parent of two teenagers (and an almost teenager)! On our last visit, my wife and I began allowing our sons to visit the parks without us. We found it was most convenient to have a resort with the easiest and most accessible transportation. For us, this meant being connected to the Disney Skyliner. We booked at Disney’s Riviera Resort because we knew our sons would want to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios more than any other park. Knowing that they simply had to board the Skyliner gave us some peace of mind.

    The other important factor in selecting a resort hotel with teenagers was the resort pool! My sons always appreciate a resort with a good pool area to enjoy! For us, that means Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa, Disney’s Riviera Resort, or Disney’s Yacht Club Resort!

    Olivia, feel free to come back to ask more planning questions! We’re always happy to help!
