The paid "Lightning Lane" will replace Disney's FastPass, which used to be free.💰
Skipping the lines at California's Disneyland and Disney World in Florida is about to get more expensive, as the company is replacing its free FastPass service with a paid alternative.
In an announcement on August 18, Disney confirmed plans to launch its new "Genie" service this fall, which promises to "maximize your park time, so you can have more fun."
Disney says the "new technology" will offer visitors their own personalized itinerary, featuring specific attractions, foodie experiences and entertainment. "Just tell Disney Genie what you want to do and it will do the planning for you," reads the announcement.
Although a free version will be built into Disney's established apps, a paid alternative will offer park visitors the chance to skip big queues via the "Lightning Lane."
This will permanently replace the FastPass, which allowed park-goers to pre-book attraction times in order to skip long lines for free. FastPass+ and Disney MaxPass services will also be retired.
The new Genie+ Service will cost $15 per ticket per day at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and $20 per ticket per day at Disneyland Resort in California. It will enable guests to use the Lightning Lane at more than 15 attractions at Disneyland and more than 40 attractions at Disney World.
