    I saw some lightening pass lines at the park today. how do I participate in that program

    Hi Megan! I sure hope you had a great time visiting the Walt Disney World Resort! You were there at such a special time! The World’s Most Magical Celebration just kicked off at the beginning of the month! I hope you were able to enjoy some of the brand new attractions and entertainment at the Disney Parks!

    The new Lightning Lane feature has also been introduced as part of the big 50th-anniversary celebration. However, the special feature will not officially launch in the My Disney Experience app until October 19, 2021. I visited Magic Kingdom Park just before the Fantasyland expansion. I missed the opening by one week! I was a bit bummed at first but then looked on the bright side! It gave me something to be excited about for my next visit! 

    Megan, when you visit next time, you’ll be able to use Lightning Lane access by purchasing the Disney Genie+ feature in your My Disney Experience app! This service will grant you access to over 40 attractions in the Disney Parks! You can also purchase individual Lightning Lane access to two of the most popular rides in the parks per day! There is so much to look forward to on your next visit!
