In August, we got the news that we were waiting for regarding the former FastPass system at the Walt Disney World Resort. The FastPass system has officially been retired. Disney Genie+ will be a paid system giving you access to shorter lines and maximizing your park time. Today, the Genie+ launch date has been announced!
