Over a year after announcing they intended to simplify Genie+ and Lightning Lane, Disney has finally announced changes to the services. Disney Genie+ will be rebranded at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. The service will also be available to purchase ahead of time at Walt Disney World.

Genie+ and Lightning Lane Updates in July

Disney Genie+ will soon be called Lightning Lane Multi Pass. Individual Lightning Lanes will be called Lightning Lane Single Pass.

At Walt Disney World, hotel guests will be able to purchase Lightning Lanes seven days ahead of time. All other guests can purchase Lightning Lane three days ahead of time. Guests will also be able to book their Lightning Lane options before paying to make sure they have the times they want, similar to the former (free) FastPass+ system.

Hotel guests will be able to book Lightning Lane passes for the duration of their vacation up to 14 days.

With Lightning Lane Multi Pass, guests can make up to three Lightning Lane selections in one day at one theme park in advance. They’ll be able to choose from various available times. On the day of their visit, they can make additional selections after they use a Lightning Lane pass.

Lightning Lane Single Pass will function relatively the same, but guests can make selections in advance. They can make up to two selections per day for high-demand rides like Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind and TRON Lightcycle / Run.

The My Disney Experience app will also be updated to make it “quicker and easier” to purchase and plan, with fewer steps and a new option to purchase Lightning Lane Multi Pass and Lightning Lane Single Pass in one transaction.

The rebrand will go into effect at Disneyland but the system will remain the same. The free Disney Genie service at both resorts will also remain the same.

Disney said the changes are the result of many focus groups they had with guests.

These changes will go into effect on July 24, 2024.
