    When using the Genie app, if I don't want to pay extra for select individual rides such as Flight of Passage, can you still wait in the standby line for access to that ride?

    Hello Mitch,

    May will be here before you know it, and so will your magical vacation! I hope the planning process is going well for you. 

    Disney's Animal Kingdom is one of my favorite parks. It has a lot of attractions and shows that you can experience without having to wait in long lines, and the details in that park are incredible! I'm always amazed when I enter Pandora - The World of Avatar, from the floating mountains to the bioluminescent rain forest, it truly feels like you've stepped onto another planet. Avatar Flight of Passage is a must do for most guests, so as you can imagine the lines get extremely long. Having said that, you never have to pay to experience any of the attractions in the theme parks at Walt Disney World; you can always wait in the standby line. If you don't purchase an Individual Lightning Lane and want to keep your wait time to a minimum, you're going to want to arrive at Disney's Animal Kingdom as early as possible and head straight to the attraction. I was there last week and even by arriving before 7:00 AM the wait time for Flight of Passage was nearly an hour, BUT it got much longer throughout the day, and this is one of those attractions that I feel is worth the wait. The park, itself, was also crowded that day, so your wait times may be a bit different.

    Although Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lanes cost money to use, Disney Genie is an absolutely free feature on your My Disney Experience app. You can put in your favorite attractions and interests, and it will create a personalized touring plan for you while you are in the parks. It will even let you know when you can start making your 60 advance dining reservations. You really have never had a friend quite like Disney Genie!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Enjoy the World's Most Magical Celebration!
