Now we know how to buy Genie+ and Individual Attraction Selections (pay-per-ride) reservations, and we’ve even found out how many rides we can do in one day using the new tools. We’ve learned that the Lightning Lane reservations for pay-per-ride attractions CAN sell out in Disney World (and some — like Rise of the Resistance in Disney’s Hollywood Studios — often do). But can Lightning Lane reservations sell out for regular Genie+ attractions as well? Let’s find out.
Confused about Disney’s new FastPass replacement, Disney Genie?
Don’t worry — we understand! There’s a LOT to break down about the new system, especially since it comes with three different parts: the Genie, Genie+, and Individual Ride Selection (pay-per-ride).

If you’re planning a 2021 trip to Disney World right now, you might be running into a few bumps that you weren’t expecting!
Trip planning is stranger than ever because of limited capacity in parks and all the reopenings going on around Disney World! Hotels and restaurants alike are reopening through the summer and later in the year. Oh yeah, and there’s that little 50th Anniversary thing going on in October (and all the crowds and craziness it will bring) to look forward to. 😉 Here’s what you need to know about the BIGGEST problems you’ll run into when planning a 2021 Disney World trip.
Disney World has not yet brought FastPass+ to the parks, so we’ve been wondering about the future of FastPasses.
FastPass+ is a system that allows you to pre-book a couple of rides before you get into the parks. We’ve recently seen FastPass kiosks in the parks (and some of them are on!), but there hasn’t been word of when the popular system will be back. Now, Disneyland Paris is implementing a new system of paid FastPasses, called Disney Premier Access.
Even though Disney World has been open since last July, there are many things that have yet to make their return to the parks, including certain restaurants (we still miss you, Casey’s Corner) and experiences, like nighttime shows and fireworks.
We only JUST got park hopping back in January, and we’re still missing things like preshows for certain attractions due to social distancing. One thing that we hear about a LOT from readers is an experience that has been absent since the summer — FastPass+.
With crowds increasing over the past few weeks in Disney World, we’ve been hearing from readers how much they hope FastPass+ returns in the coming months. And today we got a little surprise!
A page popped up on DisneyWorld.com discussing guests using FastPass+ for their trips in January and February. And you may have seen or heard some reports that it meant FastPass+ was returning in just a few months.
But we want to clear up any confusion. This page may have been put up in error. Or it possibly may not yet have been updated with 2021 information. But there are several things that show this content is from 2019.
Even the most seasoned Disney World vacationers still make mistakes!
