Disney Genie+ Reservations and Lightning Lane Passes
Disney’s FastPass entrances have been replaced with Lightning Lane entrances, and the FastPass+ system has been replaced with a paid Disney Genie+ add-on. For an extra $15 per person per day, Disney World Guests will be able to make reservations at over 40 participating rides of their choice. This perk will give you expedited access to the ride (via the Lightning Lane entrance) so you won’t have to wait in the normal lines.
Your first Disney Genie+ reservation can be made starting at 7 AM on the day of your visit, regardless of where you are staying (at a Disney resort hotel or at an off-property hotel).
Ride selections are made on a per-ride basis. After the first selection is redeemed, Guests can make additional reservations (one at a time) 1. after the last one is redeemed, 2. if return time on the first selection has ended (if you missed it), 3. or if 120 minutes have passed since the last selection was booked.
Reservations are subject to availability.
Individual Lightning Lane Selections
A select number of Disney’s highest-demand attractions are not included with Disney Genie+. Guests will need to purchase individual Lightning Lane passes (Individual Attraction Selection) in order to utilize the Lightning Lane entrances at these attractions. Costs vary based on attraction, date, and availability.
Guests can make their first pay-per-ride Lightning Lane selection starting at 7 AM if they are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts, or Shades of Green. Those staying elsewhere can make their first selection once the park opens.
