Coming this fall to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, Disney Genie is a complimentary and convenient new digital service designed to create your best Disney day! Disney Genie will be built right into the My Disney Experience and Disneyland apps, making the service easy to access.

When Disney released new information regarding the Disney Genie, the company also announced that both FastPass+ at Walt Disney World and MaxPass at Disneyland will be retired, and instead, new paid Lightning Lanes will debut as part of Disney Genie+.

Once this news was announced, fans were quick to voice their opinions — with many very upset with this decision as they were hoping a paid FastPass system would not come to Walt Disney World or Disneyland.

With the topic of FastPass taking over social media, a local Florida sheriff’s office decided to mock Disney’s decision to retire FastPass as a way to enforce the law, specifically with drinking and driving.

Collier County Sheriff’s Office posted a video clip to their Facebook page which is a still image of a Collier County Sheriff’s car with some pixie dust floating across the screen. But the caption is what grabbed the attention of many.

Portions of the caption include taking digs at Disney and how the theme parks will no longer offer FastPass as well as hashtags that read #fastpaasstojail and #itsmagic.

The full caption of the video reads:

Disney may be getting rid of the FastPass, but we aren’t! If you drink & drive in Collier County, you will get a FastPass ride in the backseat of one of our patrol cars straight to jail!

Stay safe. Don’t drink and drive.
