A LOT is changing in Disney World, and no, we’re not even talking about everything that changed at EPCOT, the Magic Kingdom expansion, or the DinoLand re-theme in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Lightning Lane at Peter Pan’s Flight

Nope, we’re talking about Genie+, which will soon STOP being Genie+ and instead be called Lightning Lane Multi-Pass, with Individual Lightning Lane becoming Lightning Lane Single Pass. With the name change also comes a lot of other changes, and if you’re confused, well, it’s okay, because it is A LOT. But we’re going to give you a complete guide about the new service so that you’ll be a pro when it begins on July 24th.

Lightning Lane Multi-Pass

Lightning Lane Multi-Pass is a paid service that lets you bypass standby lines at rides and enter their Lightning Lane. It’s basically the new name for Genie+, but it comes with some changes. One of the biggest changes is that you will be able to purchase Lightning Lane Multi-Pass BEFORE YOUR TRIP and make three advance Lightning Lane selections in the park of your choice. Disney World hotel guests will be able to make Lightning Lane selections seven days before their trip, while everyone else can make those selections three days before their trip.

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure

For advance selections, rides will be placed into tiers for Magic KingdomEPCOTand Disney’s Hollywood Studios, (Disney’s Animal Kingdom will not have the tier system). Two tiers of rides will be available. You’ll be able to make an advanced Lightning Lane selection for one ride in the first tier, and then two more from the second tier. Or you can choose three rides from the second tier. Here’s how the tiers break down:

Magic Kingdom

Kilimanjaro Safaris

On the day of your visit to that park, once you use one selection, you can immediately make another one based on what’s still available in the My Disney Experience app (similar to how Genie+ currently works). Pricing for Lightning Lane Multi-passes depends on surge pricing, so the prices could vary from day to day.

Lightning Lane Single Pass

Lightning Lane Single Pass will work like the Individual Lightning Lane selection and it will basically work the same way as the current Individual Lighting Lane system works, save for one big change — you’ll be able to make your Lightning Lane Single Pass purchases BEFORE your trip and plan your selections in advance. You are basically paying an additional fee per ride for attractions that offer this option. 

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

The full list of attractions that will have the Lightning Lane Single Pass option available are as follows:

Magic Kingdom:

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
TRON Lightcycle / Run


Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind

Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Avatar Flight of Passage

Flight of Passage

Note that the price for each Lightning Lane Single Pass selection is dependent on surge pricing, so the prices could vary from day to day. As with Lightning Lane Multi-Pass, those staying at a Disney World hotel will be able to plan their Lightning Lane Single Passes up to seven days in advance for their entire stay (up to 14 days), with all other guests being able to plan three days in advance.

Note that you will be also able to purchase both your Lightning Lane Multi-Passes and your Lightning Lane Single Passes in advance all at once.

Spaceship Earth at EPCOT
