If you've been for a visit, you may have noticed that Disney World and Disneyland didn't bring back the free FastPass when they re-opened after their pandemic closures, and now they're saying they aren't coming back! No more free line cutting!
The last time I visited Disney World back in the early 2000s you had to take a ticket with a time on it for you to return to head into the Fast Pass lane for your ride. More recently you would reserve your ride time using Disney's app which would cut down your wait time significantly.
Now Disney is trying something new called Disney Genie that will debut this Fall. You'll use this app to select which rides you want to go on, what food you want to eat, etc. Then it will give you a personalized itinerary that hopefully will minimize your wait times. That service is free, but the new version of the FastPass called Lightning Lane that lets you jump the lines is gonna cost you $15 per person per day at Disney World at $20 per person per day at Disneyland.
