Disney Lightning Lane: Skip the Lines with This Genie+ Replacement

Disney Lightning Lane Multipass & Single Pass

Don’t have time to waste during your Disney parks visit? Now you can skip the lines at your favorite rides more easily with the new Disney Lightning Lane Multi Pass and Disney Lightning Lane Single Pass.

Since FastPass in 1999, Disney parks have offered virtual express lines. Disney Genie+, the current express line service at Disneyland and Walt Disney World, will relaunch starting July 24, 2024 as two separate passes.

About Disney Lightning Lane Multi Pass

The first, Disney Lightning Lane Multi Pass, will let you skip the line during a set time at three select park attractions or experiences per day. Unlike Genie+, you can choose your express experiences days before arriving at the parks, as well as at what time you will enjoy them.

Lightning Lane Multi Pass will be available for purchase from the My Disney Experience or Disneyland Mobile apps. Each will inform you which attractions are available with your Multi Pass.

Like Genie+, the price is expected to range between $15 and $40 depending on demand and does not include admission costs. Each Multi Pass will be valid for one person only, non-transferable, non-refundable, and subject to availability.

About Disney Lightning Lane Single Pass

This second pass replaces the Individual Lightning Lane on Genie+. With it you can skip the line during a certain time period at one of the newest and most exciting attractions in each park.

The following Walt Disney World rides will work with Lightning Lane Single Pass:

  • Magic Kingdom: Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, TRON Lightcycle/Run.
  • EPCOT: Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Avatar Flight of Passage.

Inside Disneyland, the Single Pass will give you fast track access to these attractions:

  • Disneyland: Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
  • Disney California Adventure: Radiator Springs Racers.

You can purchase your Disney Lightning Lane Single Pass from the My Disney Experience or Disneyland Mobile App. Each guest can purchase up to two Single Passes per day.

Like Genie+, prices are expected between $10 and $25 depending on demand and again does not include admission costs. Each Single Pass will be valid for one person, non-transferable, non-refundable, and subject to availability.

Advantages of the New Passes

Disney Lightning Lane Passes include additional benefits compared to Genie+.

You can Buy Them Before Your Visit

Disney Genie+ could only be purchased on the morning of your first Disney park day. With both Lightning Lane Multi Pass and Single Pass, you’ll be able to get them up to three days in advance with your purchased park ticket or Annual Pass.

If you also have a reservation at a Disney Resort or affiliated hotel, you can request your Lightning Lane passes up to seven days before your first day in the park, for a 14-day stay total.

Attraction Photos Will Be Included

These Passes will also include a limited version of the Disney PhotoPass service. You’ll receive digital downloads of photos and videos of yourself captured at select attractions throughout your day.

Disney Photo Filters Will Remain

Disney PhotoPass Lenses, augmented reality filters included with Disney Genie+, will continue to be available in your Disney park mobile app with your pass purchase, so you can take fun photos and videos during your visit.

Regular Disney Genie Will Still Live On in Your App

Disney Genie, the virtual assistant within your park app, will still be available to generate suggested itineraries or activities and help you with your reservations, all for free.

Caveats

Please note the following before requesting any Lightning Lane pass:

  • The service is exclusive to Disney parks in the United States. Other parks have Disney Premier Access, with different mechanics and prices.
  • At the moment, those who do not reside in the United States or Canada will not be able to reserve Disney Lightning Lane passes until they are present in North American territory.
  • Genie+ will remain available until the date Lightning Lane passes go into effect. It means that you will not be able to pre-order your express lines before that day, even if they are available for purchase.
