Lightning Lane is term Disney uses for a faster, priority queue available at select attractions. (For those familiar with the past, think of Lightning Lane as a new name for the "FASTPASS" queue.) It is an alternative to the "standby queue," which is what people enter when the simply walk up to the attraction, get in line, and wait for their turn to ride.

Lightning Lane queues can only be used by those paying for an add-on service (Genie+ for most attractions, or paid Lightning Lane access for the individual "top" attractions) in the Disneyland app, or by those partaking in services offered through Rider Switch or Disability Access Services. We expect those taking a VIP Tour will also use Lightning Lanes.

Disney announced that use of Lighting Lanes will start in Fall 2021. We will provide additional information when it is available.
