Tom Bricker responded to a commenter on his blog this week to the effect of “you’ll be happy with the upcoming changes” (paraphrasing)— have any of the experts on this board predicted what will be changing and/or when it’s likely to happen? I was hoping it would be before of Feb 2024 trip and now I’m just praying it’s before our holiday trip.
What had been suggested towards the end of last year included:
- Some preselects (hence the 8 day cancellation change)
- Tiers in all parks

Earlier this year it was said the changes had been postponed to allow the DAS changes to happen first.

Of course that has left plenty of time for further changes in the mean time.

Edited to fill in details.

What does ‘tiers in all parks’ mean? Is that like the old system where you couldn’t preselect only the top rides?

Correct, basically I'm assuming they will give 2-3 preselects and only 1 of those can be in the top "tier". Part of the issue is that with ILL, now each Tier 1 attraction is not actually the top of each park anymore.

Just a guess (no inside information)
ParkILL(s)Tier 1sBest of the Rest
MKTron/7DTiana, Pan, JC, maybe SpaceThunder, Pirates, HM
EPCOTGuardiansRemy, Frozen, maybe TTSSE, Soarin, MS
DHSRotRSlinky, MMRR, maybe ToT or MFSRRnRC, TSMM, Alien
AKFOPNavi, Everest, maybe SafariDinosaur, Kali, FotLK

The official announcement is out:

Here’s how Lightning Lane passes will work beginning July 24.

Lightning Lane Multi Pass 


When you purchase Lightning Lane Multi Pass, you may make up to 3 Lightning Lane selections in a theme park, in advance of your visit. You’ll also be able to choose available times as you make your selections.

On the day of your visit, once you use a selection, check the My Disney Experience app for availability to make an additional selection.

Lightning Lane Single Pass ​

Lightning Lane Single Pass will work much like it does today, where you can secure a time to ride one of our most highly demanded attractions, but you’ll now be able to make your purchase and plan in advance.  

How to Plan Ahead

Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel and other select hotels will be able to plan Lightning Lane passes up to 7 days in advance, for their entire stay (up to 14 days). All other guests can plan up to 3 days in advance.

These advance purchase windows will let guests secure some of their must-do rides and experiences after they’ve had some time to decide what dining reservations they want to book and any other plans they may need to consider.

Guests may purchase a Lightning Lane Multi Pass, a Lightning Lane Single Pass or both. The app will also be updated to make it quicker and easier to purchase and plan, with fewer steps and a new option to purchase Lightning Lane Single Pass and Lightning Lane Multi Pass in one transaction.

Lightning Lane passes will blend features from our current services and the previously offered FastPass+ service, giving guests the choice to plan ahead and removing the hassle of planning during their vacation.

To dive into even more details, visit our website for the latest information on how to purchase, select and use your Lightning Lane passes.

So does this replace Genie+ or complement it?
