Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Guests Will Have Early Access to Lightning Lane Attraction Selections
Today, Disney announced the new Genie+ and Lightning Lane programs replacing FastPass+ at Walt Disney World. While resort hotel guests may be disappointed to learn they will lose their opportunity to book ride times 60 days in advance, they will still have a slight advantage over other guests.
While all guests will be able to select their first attraction time for the day at 7 a.m. using Genie+, resort guests will also be able to make Lightning Lane individual attraction purchases at 7 a.m. Non-resort guests cannot purchase Lightning Lane access until the park opens for the day.
Disney will release a list of the attractions available for both the paid Genie+ program and the Lightning Lane individual attractions program, including pricing, at a later date. For now, we know that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will be available via Lightning Lane.
