Genie+ Has Been Cancelled

Disney has revamped the Lightning Lane reservation system to offer MORE!  

MORE pre-planning, MORE sleep, and MORE time to focus magical experiences with your loved ones!

Changes have been made to the Lightening Lane reservation system.  We wanted less time on your phones in the park and more time focused on our family in the moment.  We wanted to get more sleep.  We wanted preplanning abilities similar to the old FastPass+ system. Most importantly, we wanted an advantage to staying on Disney property. Disney Delivered and it all begins July 24th, 2024! 

Same Paid for Service with Modified Names

When Disney first introduced the “paid for fastpass system” you purchased Genie+ in order to receive access for reserving Lightning Lane times.  Disney sent the Genie back to their bottle and made the wording simpler and streamlined.  You now have two purchase options: 

  1. Lightning Lane MultiPass – formally named Genie+ which gave access to reserving Lightning Lanes
  2. Lightning Lane Single Pass – formally Individual Lightening Lane

Purchasing The Different Lightening Lane Options

Lightning Lane MultiPass

  • Advance Booking: Book up to three experiences per day, up to 7 days before check-in, for Disney Resort guests. Offsite Guests may book 3 days in advance.  This gives a marked advantage to those who stay on Disney Property. 
  • Group System: Select one experience from Group 1 (most popular) and two from Group 2 (other attractions). More on that below. 
  • Park Hopping: While visiting the parks after using your first Lightning Lane Multi Pass selection, book additional experiences in any park. There is no Group 1 or Group 2 day of and selections will likely be limited. 

Lightning Lane Single Pass

  • Top Attractions: Limited to two per day for high-demand rides:  Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Tron Lightcycle/Run, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, Avatar Flight of Passage, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. 
  • Flexible Booking: These attractions can be purchased separately or with a MultiPass, one per attraction per day.

Grouped Attractions by Popularity
