Disney Genie is debuting at Disney World on October 19, 2021. When the in-app park guide comes out of the lamp, it’s bringing with it Lightning Lane, which is Disney World’s replacement for FastPass. Disney announced the full lineup for Lightning Lane attractions that will be included with the optional Genie+ add-on, as well the Individual Lightning Lane Selections, which will require an additional purchase and aren’t include

How is Lightning Lane different than FastPass+?

It costs money. That’s the main difference. Lightning Lane also does not include advanced reservations, as selections are all made on the same day. Also, while FastPass+ worked the same on every attraction that offered it, Lightning Lane will be different between the Individual Lightning Lane Selections (need to purchase a la carte) and the ones included with Genie+ ($15/day gets you access to one-at-a-time selections).

Otherwise, Lightning Lane works just like FastPass. You get a return time for a specific attraction and then you wait a shorter time in line.

How much will Genie+ cost?

Genie+ costs $15 per day, and it gives you access to 40 attractions – basically all of the previous FastPass attractions, minus the two most popular rides in each park. You can find the full list of attractions below.

Keep in mind that Genie+ does not allow same day rerides at this time.

How much will Individual Lightning Lane Selections cost?

It will vary depending on the attraction and day you visit Disney World.

Per Disney:

Prices will vary by date, attraction and park. For example, the Lightning Lane entrance to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will be $9 per person on October 19 and $11 per person on October 23. As another example, on both those dates, Lightning Lane entrance to Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain will be $7 per person, while Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will be $15 per person. Throughout the year, prices may be lower on some days and higher on other days. This option may be purchased at up to 2 different attractions each day.

What is the difference between Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane Selections again?

This is probably the most confusing aspect of Disney World’s new system, and the one I get asked about the most. Genie+ is $15/day, and it gives you access to Lightning Lane at most attractions. You make your Genie+ Lightning Lane selections one at a time, like how the old paper FastPass system worked. For example, if you get a Lightning Lane reservation for 10 am at Millennium Falcon, you could get a new Lightning Lane selection for a different ride after you’ve used your Falcon LL reservation (or after 120 minutes have elapsed from when you made the reservation – whichever is soonest). You will be able to select the next available Lightning Lane slot only – so if an attraction has Lightning Lane available at noon, you can’t try to grab a later slot. Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations can be modified (change attraction or time after you’ve made a selection). Genie+ itself will not sell out, but Lightning Lane access to attractions will be first come first serve – so purchasing Genie+ doesn’t guarantee you LL access to your favorite ride.

Rides offered with Individual Lightning Lane Selections are not included in Genie+, and they must be purchased per ride. They are the two most in-demand rides in each park. You can make both of your Individual Lightning Lane Selection purchases at the same time – you do not have to wait 120 minutes between purchases or only hold one at a time like Genie+ selections. You do not have to buy Genie+ in order to buy an Individual Lightning Lane Selection. Individual Lightning Lane Selections cannot be cancelled or modified once they are purchased. So if you buy a 2pm Lightning Lane for Rise of the Resistance, you cannot alter your time or change it to a Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway reservation. Individual Lightning Lane selections go on sale at 7am, and you can select from a number of times, although times will be limited and can sell out.
