Disney’s NEW Lightning Lane Multi Pass and Lightning Lane Single Pass

Disney is renaming and changing its Genie+ service to Disney’s Lightning Lane Multi Pass and Lightning Lane Single Pass starting 24th July 2024. Disney’s Lightning Lanes allow guests to bypass the standby queue and join a separate queue (for a shorter wait time) for select attraction and entertainment experiences. Guests can purchase a Lightning Lane Multi Pass which can be used for multiple rides and attractions or they can purchase a Lightning Lane Single Pass which can only be used for a single ride or attraction. Guests can purchase either or both types of pass. 

Lightning Lane Multi Pass 

When you purchase Lightning Lane Multi Pass, you may make up to 3 Lightning Lane selections in a theme park, in advance of your visit. You’ll also be able to choose available times as you make your selections.

On the day of your visit, once you use a selection, check the My Disney Experience app for availability to make an additional selection.

Lightning Lane Single Pass 

Lightning Lane Single Pass will work much like it does today, where you can secure a time to ride one of our most highly demanded attractions, but you’ll now be able to make your purchase and plan in advance.  

How to Plan Ahead

Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel and other select hotels will be able to plan Lightning Lane passes up to 7 days in advance, for their entire stay (up to 14 days). All other guests can plan up to 3 days in advance.

These advance purchase windows will let guests secure some of their must-do rides and experiences after they’ve had some time to decide what dining reservations they want to book and any other plans they may need to consider.

Guests may purchase a Lightning Lane Multi Pass, a Lightning Lane Single Pass or both. The app will also be updated to make it quicker and easier to purchase and plan, with fewer steps and a new option to purchase Lightning Lane Single Pass and Lightning Lane Multi Pass in one transaction.

Lightning Lane passes will blend features from the previously offered Genie+ and FastPass+ services, giving guests the choice to plan ahead and removing the hassle of planning during their vacation.

Prices are shown within the My Disney Experience APP. The cost for lightning lanes vary by date and theme park and are subject to limited availability.
