Today Disney announced changes to its Genie+ service which fans of the former FastPass+ service will likely appreciate. First, the Genie+ branding is being retired with Disney's line-skipping options now known as Lightning Lane:

  • Lightning Lane Single Pass: the current individual Lightning Lane product, offered for attractions like Rise of the Resistance and Pandora: Flight of Passage
  • Lightning Lane Multi Pass: the former Genie+ product

With Lightning Lane Multi Pass, guests will be able to make up to 3 Lightning Lane selections in advance of their visit, including the attraction and their preferred ride time. 

Disney resort guests--including those staying at Disney Vacation Club resorts--can make their selections up to 7 days in advance of arrival for their entire length of stay (up to 14 days.) Other guests can plan up to 3 days in advance. After using the first Lightning Lane selection of the day, guests will be able to book an addiitonal experience. 

On any given day, guests can choose to use either Lightning Lane Single Pass, Lightning Lane Multi Pass or both services. 

Attractions at Magic Kingdom, EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios are separated into two Lightning Lane Multi Pass groups. Guests can choose one attraction from Group 1 and two attractions from Group 2. (Or all three attractions from Group 2.) The attractions are as follows:
