    Hello, We are visiting Hollywood Studios on April 18 and wondering if we will need a fastpass for the new Lightning attraction. Thanks, Michelle

    Ka-CHOW, Michelle! Thanks for racing on over to see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Let's get some driving tips from the Piston Cup champ himself at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Now that Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy has set up shop in Disney's Hollywood Studios, I know lots of fans of the Disney*Pixar Cars movies are super excited to check it out. I can't wait to drop in and see Lightning and the gang! I've heard the show really rocks!

    Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy takes place in a large indoor theater with multiple showings throughout the day. I checked the My Disney Experience app, and it looks like it isn't a FastPass+ enabled attraction at this time. That can always change, so I'd check the app again before your trip just to be on the safe side, but for now you won't need to use a FastPass+ selection to see it.

    I hope you have a great time racing with Lightning, Michelle! Please come on back and see us if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
