Huge Changes to Genie+ Coming July 24, 2024

Updated: 1 day ago

Disney dropped a huge announcement today completely revamping their Genie+ system allowing guests who purchase their new Lighting Lane Multi Pass to book 3 Lightning Lanes up to 7 days for Disney Resort guests, and 3 days in advance for guests not staying at a Walt Disney Resort. Disney released the following statement on June 25, 2024:

On July 24, Walt Disney World will introduce new, simpler names to provide more clarity for everyone. Disney Genie+ service will become Lightning Lane Multi Pass, while individual Lightning Lane will now be known as Lightning Lane Single Pass.   

We will also be updating Lightning Lane passes to help guests:

  • Make Lightning Lane plans before you’re here, for added confidence.     

  • Choose your experiences and times prior to purchasing, so you know what you’re getting. 

  • Book Lightning Lane passes for multiple vacation days, all in a single day. 

Here’s how Lightning Lane passes will work beginning July 24.

Lightning Lane Multi Pass When guests purchase Lightning Lane Multi Pass, they may make up to 3 Lightning Lane selections in a theme park, in advance of your visit. They’ll also be able to choose available times as they make their selections. On the day of their visit, once they use a selection, Lightning Lane Single Pass Lightning Lane Single Pass will work much like it does today, where guests can secure a time to ride one of our most highly demanded attractions, but they’ll now be able to make their purchase and plan in advance.       

How to Plan Ahead Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel and other select hotels (Shades of Green Resort, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin 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.  

Here is a quick breakdown of the new Lighting Lane Multi-Pass:

After purchasing the MultiPass you will be able to make 3 Lightning Lane selections from the available times. Each park but Animal Kingdom will have two groups, and guests will be able to book one selection from group 1 and two selections (or three if none is booked from group 1) from group 2. Once a guest uses one of their selections they may then book an additional lightning lane from any available attraction. You may never hold more than three Lighting Lane selections at a time. You may only book each attraction once per day.

Lightning Lane Single Pass:

 Lightning Lane Single Pass will work exactly like Individual Lightning Lanes, guests “secure a time to ride one of (Disney’s) most highly demanded attractions.” The only difference will be the ability to purchase it in advance.
