New Lightning Lane Multi Pass Coming – Fastpass Plus With a Twist?

When you’re getting ready for your upcoming Disney vacation, it is full of excitement. But always some concern if you will be able to get the rides that you want. One of the best features Disney had in the past was Fastpass + but this went away in 2020. The Genie+ had helped some but was limited in selection. However, Disney has announced that they listened to guests and brought back a version of Fastpass + with a twist. They will adapt the Lightning Lane with the new Lightning Lane Multi Pass.

This summer, changes are being made to the Disney Genie+ service and individual Lightning Lane entry to allow for better planning. Starting July 24, Disney Genie+ will be renamed Lightning Lane Multi Pass, and individual Lightning Lane will be called Lightning Lane Single Pass. Make sure to note refurbishment schedule when booking the selections!

Key Changes to Lightning Lane Multi Pass:

Previously, lightning lanes and Genie+ you would have to make the selections the day that it was purchased during yoru vacation. This limited the number of rides that you could get with this system. However, now with the new system, Guests will be able to make the selections prior to getting to starting their trip. Furthermore, guests can select the times for the experience they want and will be able to select the experiences for the entirety of their Disney vacation. Similar to Fastpass+ there are tiers of rides that may impact selections. These will be listed later in the article.

Lightning Lane Passes:

  • Lightning Lane Multi Pass: Allows up to 3 advance selections per theme park visit, with the ability to choose specific times.
  • Lightning Lane Single Pass: Secure a time for high-demand attractions, now available for advance planning. These experiences are not available on Multi Pass option.

How to Plan Ahead:

  • Disney Resort Hotel Guests: Can plan Lightning Lane passes up to 7 days in advance for their entire stay (up to 14 days).
  • Other Guests: Can plan up to 3 days in advance.

These advance planning windows help guests secure must-do rides and experiences after finalizing other plans like dining reservations, which can be booked 60 days before trip. Guests can purchase either a Lightning Lane Multi Pass, a Lightning Lane Single Pass, or both, with a simplified purchasing process through the My Disney Experience app. After you have used one of your selections, you can then go back into My Disney Experience app and selected another experience. This will vary for availability. You will be able to use this with Park Hopper and not locked to any particular park. 

Important to note – This can only be done within the United States. If you are traveling internationally, you cannot make the selections until you are within the United States currently.

Each park has a list of rides that will fall within the Lightning Lane Multi Pass but some are limited to the Lightning Lane single pass.
