Say goodbye to Disney’s Genie+, as the ride reservation system at Disney World and Disneyland is being rebranded to coincide with some rule changes allowing for booking ride times in advance — similar to the old FastPass+ system — at the Florida theme parks. 

Starting on July 24, what has been called Genie+ will be called Lightning Lane Multi Pass. This system allows for guests, for a fee, to book times to use the Lightning Lane queues on certain rides to lower their waits. The separate fee for skipping the line on marquee attractions in every park, previously called Individual Lightning Lane, will be redubbed Lightning Lane Single Pass. 

The rebranding comes with a major shift in how Lightning Lanes will work at Disney World, restoring the ability to book these ride reservations in advance. If you’re staying at an on-site Disney World hotels, starting on July 24, you’ll be able to make up to three Lightning Lane reservations up to seven days in advance for the entire length of your trip, up to 14 days. All other guests, including annual passholders, will be able to make reservations up to three days in advance. 

To Disney World veterans, this may sound similar to the rules of the old FastPass+ system which went away following the resort’s March 2020 COVID-19 closure. Under FastPass+, hotel guests could book ride times up to 60 days in advance — though without paying any fees, as is required with Lightning Lanes. 

In another nod to FastPass+, the new Lightning Lane Multi Pass will reintroduce attraction tiers for advance reservations, limiting how many of any park’s top-tier rides that guests can book ahead of their visit. In the Magic Kingdom, for example, guests will only be able to book one advance reservation out of the five “Tier 1” rides: Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Jungle Cruise, Peter Pan’s Flight, Space Mountain, and the new Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.

Disneyland will not be adopting the advance booking rules. As Disney said in a post on its official Parks Blog, “Based on the different ways we know guests visit Disneyland Resort, the way guests purchase, select and redeem Lightning Lane passes at Disneyland Resort will remain the same.” 

Genie+ was first launched at Disney World in October 2021. After starting with a flat $15 per person, per day price structure, the service has since adopted a variable model, peaking at $39 during late 2023 and spring break in 2024, according to Thrill-Data.com
