Disney Genie+ is changing in some very big ways on July 24th, 2024.

Lightning Lane at Expedition Everest

Genie+ is a paid service that reduces your wait times for attractions at Disney World and at Disneyland Resort. You buy Genie+ in the My Disney Experience App, and it allows you to book windows to ride your favorite ride using the Lightning Lane — which has shorter waits than the typical standby lines. In addition, you can buy Individual Lightning Lanes for certain rides — where you pay to book a specific window to ride that one ride (there’s a list of those “individual” rides right here). Today, we’ve learned of a BIG CHANGE coming to Disney Genie+!

Disney has announced that, well, we’ll no longer calling it Disney Genie+ at all! The service is getting a new name — two in fact. Disney Genie+ will now be called Lightning Lane Multi Pass. And Individual Lightning Lanes will now be called Lightning Lane Single Pass.

Lightning Lane at Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway

As we said, this change takes effect on July 24th. But, there’s more!

With Lightning Lane Multi Pass, you will now be able to book up to 3 Lightning Lanes in advance of your visit. This is the way FastPass+ used to work (except it was free and not paid) before that program was ended and Genie+ was introduced!

The revamped program will bring back the advance selections previously allowed under FastPass+.

Now, the advance selections will only be available at Disney World — at Disneyland, Lightning Lane Multi Pass will continue to work the way Genie+ does now.

In addition, Disney said people staying at Disney World hotels (or other select resorts) will be able to make their Lightning Lane selections up to 7 days in advance for their entire stay up to 14 days. If you’re not staying in a Disney World hotel, you will be able to make your selections up to 3 days in advance.

Magic Kingdom

Disney said the new names — Lightning Lane Multi Pass and Lightning Lane Single Pass — are simpler and will be easier to understand. These changes are a reflection of promises Disney made last year to fans to bring back a way to plan more of their day in advance.

Rest assured our team will be testing out the new system as soon as it is available (starting July 24th), so keep following us here at DFB for complete coverage!
