Walt Disney World Announces Genie+ Changes

by Jun 25, 2024


Genie+ changes coming to Walt Disney World are about to make planning your theme park day even easier, and help you avoid having to wake up with the rooster to get those Lightning Lane selections!

On July 24, 2024, Walt Disney World will introduce new, simpler names to provide more clarity for everyone. Disney Genie+ service will become Lightning Lane Multi Pass, while individual Lightning Lane will now be known as Lightning Lane Single Pass.

Updates to Lightning Lane Passes will help guests:

  • Make Lightning Lane plans before you arrive at Walt Disney World, for added confidence.    
  • Choose your experiences and times prior to purchasing, so you know what you’re getting.
  • Book Lightning Lane passes for multiple vacation days, all in a single day.

Here’s how Lightning Lane passes will work beginning July 24


Lightning Lane Multi Pass

When you purchase Lightning Lane Multi Pass, you may make up to 3 Lightning Lane selections for a theme park, in advance of your visit. Just like the old Fast Pass+ system, you’ll be able to choose from available times as you make your selections. On the day of your visit, once you use a selection, you can check the My Disney Experience app for availability to make an additional selection.

Lightning Lane Single Pass

Lightning Lane Single Pass will work much like it currently does under the “Individual Lightning Lane” name. Guests can pay an extra fee to secure a time to ride some of the most popular attractions – but now you can make the purchase in advance, to help plan your day better.

How to plan ahead with Lightning Lane selections


Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel, Shades of Green Resort, or the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels  will be able to plan Lightning Lane passes up to 7 days in advance, for their entire stay (up to 14 days). Guests staying off-site or at Disney Good Neighbor hotels can make Lightning Lane selections up to 3 days in advance of their stay.

The process of purchasing Lightning Lane passes will be getting an upgrade as well, to streamline the process. You may purchase Lightning Lane Multi Pass, Single Pass, or both with fewer steps, and a new option to purchase Lightning Lane Single Pass and Lightning Lane Multi Pass in one transaction.

The complimentary features of Disney Genie service will continue to be available in the My Disney Experience app. The app has also gotten a series of upgrades over the last year to make features easier to use, including making dining reservations, mobile food ordering, and more.

Lightning Lane passes will blend features from our current services and the previously offered FastPass+ service, giving guests the choice to plan ahead and removing the hassle of planning during their vacation.
