Your Guide to Hollywood Studios Lightning Lane Options and Tiers

Starting July 24, 2024, there will be updates to the Disney Genie+ service at Walt Disney World Resort. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, as well as the other Disney World theme parks, you’ll have two paid options for bypassing the lines: the Disney Lightning Lane Multi Pass (previously known as Genie+ service) and the Disney Lightning Lane Single Pass (previously known as individual Lightning Lanes). With these changes, you can choose your desired rides in advance! Wahoo! The Lightning Lane Multi Pass includes different tiers, similar to the old FASTPASS+ system. Today, we're breaking it down so you'll know all your choices beforehand. Lights, camera, action!

Overview of Lightning Lanes at Hollywood Studios

With the introduction of Disney Lightning Lane passes, you can now pre-book up to three rides or experiences up to three days before your visit through the My Disney Experience app. Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels have the added benefit of making these selections (for both Multi Pass and Single Pass options) up to seven days in advance for the duration of their stay, up to 14 days. Each day, you can choose up to three Multi Pass selections, with the option to include one Tier 1 ride and two from Tier 2. Another option? Make all three selections from Tier 2 — it's your call! As an example, you could plan for Slinky Dog Dash, Star Tours and The Twilight Tower of Terror, or switch out Slinky Dog for Toy Story Mania. In addition, you can purchase up to two Single Pass rides per day.

Once you’ve scanned in for a Lightning Lane Multi Pass at the park, you can use the app to book another selection from either Tier 1 or 2. You can continue booking one at a time until the park closes. For those with park hopper tickets or annual passes, this is when you can select rides or shows in a different park. Each attraction can be accessed through Lightning Lane only once per day.
