Goodbye FastPass+, hello Genie+ and Lightning Lane. During a stroll through Magic Kingdom Park today, one of our Florida team members Jeremiah spotted some updated signage as the rollout of Disney Genie gets closer. Fittingly enough, one of the first attractions to swap out its FastPass+ signage for a Lightning Lane is the Tomorrowland Speedway. The future beckons.
A small change over at it’s a small world, this one looks like it’s probably not the final design. Either that or the color-matching didn’t go quite according to plan.
Hot off the success of its blockbuster hit film, Jungle Cruise has also jumped the shark (or is it hippo?) to Lightning Lane.
That’s right, folks. FastPass+ is completely gone at Jungle Cruise. Nothing to see here…
Space Mountain appears to be preparing to blast off into the Lightning Lane soon. Until then, please use the Stand-By Entrance.
Note that not all Lightning Lane signage is created equal. If the Imagineers are going to retain the highly detailed signage of attractions like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, this could take some time to whittle while they work.
What’s a Lightning Lane?
- Lightning Lane replaces FastPass+ at the Walt Disney World Resort and FastPass and MaxPass at the Disneyland Resort.
- As part of the new Disney Genie vacation planning tool, Guests can pay an additional fee to access select Lightning Lane queues or pay for individual Lightning Lane entries.
- Like the former FastPass system, Guests using a Lightning Lane will experience a shorter wait time for an attraction.
- The Disney Genie+ service will cost $15 per person per day at Walt Disney World and $20 per person per day at the Disneyland Resort. This service offers Guests multiple Lightning Lane experiences per day in addition to PhotoPass downloads and AR offerings, plus audio experiences.
- Pricing for individual Lightning Lane experiences will vary by attraction and date. More detailed information will be released closer to the launch of Disney Genie this fall.
