BREAKING: Disney officially reveals Genie, Genie+, and Lightning Lane coming to Walt Disney World and Disneyland this fall. Genie+ and Lightning Lane will replace FastPass+ and MaxPass.

Genie+ will be priced at $15 pp/day at WDW, $20 pp/day at Disneyland

A breakdown thread -
Disney is introducing Lightning Lane -- the replacement for the FastPass “line.” Genie+, for a flat fee $15 at WDW and $20 at DL, gets you LL access to *most* attractions (ex: Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain). Genie+ includes 15+ attractions at DL, 40+ at WDW.
High demand attractions, like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Radiator Springs Racers, will be available as “individual attraction selections”. These will be priced per person per ride (pricing tbd) and get you access to LL on those rides. Max two Lightning Lane purchases pp/per day.

FLASH: A source tells the Associated Press the CDC will issue guidance Thursday allowing fully vaccinated people to ditch masks indoors in many instances.
UPDATE: The new guidance will still call for wearing masks in crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters, but could ease restrictions for reopening workplaces and schools.
MORE: The new guidance will also no longer recommend that fully vaccinated people wear masks outdoors in crowds.

WDW has updated its physical distancing policy, saying they will "reduce physical distancing measures" across some areas -- however six-feet distancing measures will continue in dining locations, merchandise stores "and in areas where Guests can temporarily remove masks."
Say goodbye to the Runaway Railway outdoor queue madness (via @bioreconstruct).
Another example I expect to see soon - the Peter Pan queue.

The extended queue currently uses Columbia Harbour House. If you reduce spacing in that queue, then Disney can actually use the restaurant as a restaurant - which means more food options and higher park capacity.

If you are going to Walt Disney World tomorrow for the AP preview or this weekend for the official opening (or both!), here's what you can expect (a thread):

When you arrive, you'll get your temperature checked. Masks on! And when scanning your ticket, no fingerprint required.
Here's what social distancing on attractions will look like:
A reminder traditional neck gaiters are not an approved face covering at WDW. Disney says the face covering must have loops and/or straps that secure the mask to the face.

Just stop what you’re doing and enjoy listening to the #AvengersEndgame opening night crowd react to Captain America wielding Thor's hammer.

And of course the theater reaction to PORTALS was bonkers.
